Now Playing: The Witcher 3 PS4 Pro 4K Update Gameplay

Back in late December, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red said it would add HDR support on PS4 Pro for the celebrated RPG "in the near future." Months later, the patch is still not out, leaving fans to wonder what's going on and when the update will be delivered.

Now, community manager Marcin Momot has addressed the situation. Writing on Twitter, Momot apologized for CD Projekt Red's silence on matter, going on to say that the studio "should have more info on that next week."

As announced previously, this patch is also expected to make "a number of technical tweaks improving and the overall experience" on PS4 Pro. HDR, which stands for high dynamic range, aims to represent colors in a more realistic way; scenes will look more lush and vibrant. Check out GameSpot's detailed breakdown of HDR here to learn more about it.

This won't be the first PS4 Pro patch for The Witcher 3, as CD Projekt Red added 4K support in an update last year. This same patch improved the game's overall performance slightly as a result of the PS4 Pro's extra horsepower.

The Witcher 3 already supports 4K and HDR on Xbox One X by way of an update that was released in December 2017. The game already looked beautiful on console (and even better on PC), but these new console updates took things to another level.

In addition to the new PS4 Pro patch and ongoing support for Gwent, CD Projekt Red is currently working on the much-anticipated Cyperpunk 2077. The game's Twitter account recently came alive for the first time in years, while CD Projekt Red has confirmed it is attending E3 this year. Whether or not this means we'll get some news on the game in the coming months remains to be seen, but we sure hope that is the case.
