Witcher 3's PS4/Xbox One Patch Not Coming This Week

"We're working on addressing what we can."


The recently released PC patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which included a long list of fixes and performance optimizations, won't arrive for consoles until next week at the earliest. Developer CD Projekt Red confirmed release timing details and more recently on Twitter.

"Not this week. Sorry," CD Projekt Red community lead Marcin Momot said to a fan who inquired about when the patch would arrive.

You can read the full patch notes here, but be aware that the changelog also includes PC-specific tweaks that won't show up on console.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players can, however, expect improved frame rate and more.

"We're working on addressing what we can," Momot said. "We collect everything the community is reporting."

The Witcher 3 launched earlier this week behind rave reviews, including a perfect 10/10 from GameSpot. The game has faced some controversy, however, as CD Projekt Red reportedly stonewalled a digital retailer, while the team also recently spoke out to address "graphics downgrade" concerns.
