CD Projekt Red is being very kind to players of its masterpiece, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Previously, the devs announced that it is giving free PC copies of the game via GOG for those who own the game on PS4 or Xbox One. Now, the company is also announcing free next-generation upgrades if you own the console versions of the game.
The current gen console versions of The Witcher 3, as well as the PC version of the game, will also be getting a graphical upgrade. This will come in the form of a free update, though no mention on when exactly the update will be live.

Of course, there’s also the option of buying the game on the next gen consoles straight up. No exact date for this either, but the PR lead at CDPR, Radek Grabowski, mentions 2021 on Twitter. It’s likely the graphics upgrade for PC and current gen consoles will be available on the same day.
This makes The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt one of the games with the longest lives, as it were. First released back in 2015, it will now get an extended life further into the next console generation as well. Another game that has managed to get support across two console generations is The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.
