Witcher 3's Next Patch, Which Will Fix XP Bug, "Definitely Not" Coming Today

"Definitely not today. That's all I can say for now," community lead Marcin Momot said on Twitter to a fan who asked when the patch would be deployed.

He went on to say the patch should be released "very soon," explaining that it's taking a little while due to the scope of the changes and fixes that it will include.

"This patch is very large (lots of changes/fixes)," he said. "We are hoping to release it very soon."

The forthcoming Witcher 3 patch is called 1.05 for PC and 1.04 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Some of the most-requested changes and fixes are listed below, but be aware that the final changelog has not been published yet.

When the patch is ready, it will presumably be released on PC first before coming to consoles later. This has been true for all Witcher 3 patches released so far.
