The Witcher 3's free next-gen upgrade has been delayed again

Quite some time ago now, in the run-up to Cyberpunk's release, CD Projekt Red said it was working on a next-gen upgrade for its venerable RPG The Witcher 3, so that owners of the PS5 or Xbox Series X/S could play it again or for the first time with improved performance.  

That upgrade was originally being developed externally, by Saber Interactive, which is the same studio that worked such magic on the game's Switch port. It was previously slated for a late-2021 release but then pushed back to Q2 2022. Now it seems that things have changed again. 

The company has taken to Twitter to make an announcement that will no doubt disappoint many:

"We have decided to have our in-house development team conduct the remaining work on the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We are currently evaluating the scope of work to be done and thus have to postpone Q2 release until further notice."

We'll update you as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding. 2/2

Though the company did not expand further in the public announcement, it did explain why to some degree in a note to the investors. There it said that it was making the move to in-house development "based on recommendations from persons in charge of development...". 

So now the update is delayed indefinitely and all we can do is wait and hope for the best.
