CD Projekt Red To Remove "Unintended" Realistic Nudity In The Witcher 3

The new-gen update made the game even more NSFW.


CD Projekt Red has stated that the addition of visible, realistic labia and pubic hair in The Witcher 3 new-gen update was unintentional. The developer is working on an update to remove the textures.

The initial report, and CD Projekt Red's statement, came from Kotaku. Most of the game's romantic scenes do not include full frontal female nudity, but the Bruxa enemies and the crones from Crookback Bog (in one, late-game cutscene) do appear fully nude, even in the original version of the game. While the original version obscured genitalia with a Barbie-like effect, the current version has more realistic nudity. Why this inclusion was made was unclear, and when Kotaku reached out for comment, CD Projekt Red replied, "We’re looking into it and will have more information in the coming days."

Now Playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Next Gen Review

After reporting on the original topic and getting the statement, Kotaku received an email from a representative of CD Projekt Red, which read: "The next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt features several community-sourced mods not created by CD PROJEKT RED, on top of numerous enhancements created and implemented by the studio internally. Merging everything together was a complex process and the textures in question are an unintended result present in the release version. This is something we are working to address." GameSpot reached out for comment and received the same statement in reply.

Shortly after the story was published, CD Projekt Red confirmed to Kotaku that it is planning on releasing an update to remove the unintentional addition. Cyberpunk 2077 also had similar issues with unintentional nudity, though those issues were an effect of the game's glitchy launch.

This story has been updated to reflect that GameSpot received a statement from CD Projekt Red.
