New Witcher 3 Patch Coming to Address “All Major Issues”

By | 5 months ago 

Game developer CD Projekt Red officially announces its plans to launch a patch as soon as possible to address “all major issues” in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Although the developers at CD Projekt Red just released a massive patch ahead of the launch of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s Blood & Wine DLC, the studio’s community manager Marcin Momot has confirmed that its action-RPG still has its share of gameplay problems. Although he didn’t go into complete detail as to what all of the fixes will be, the CD Projekt Red community manager did state developers hope to have it out “as soon as possible” and that it will address “all major reported issues.”

According to fans on The Witcher 3‘s official tech support forum, the game is suffering from a number of problems, including instances of freezing as well as some missions failing to load. Although CD Projekt Red has yet to confirm whether or not the upcoming patch will squash these problems once and for all, it’s safe to assume that they will, as many would definitely consider them to be “major reported issues.”

In the tweets seen below, Marcin Momot not only assures fans of The Witcher 3 that the action-RPG will receive a patch as fast as CD Projekt Red can deliver it, but he also confirms it will rectify a problem that causes the camera to fail to lock onto enemies. That said, it remains to be seen what all the studio will include in the forthcoming update.

As was previously reported, The Witcher 3‘s Blood & Wine is the last expansion for the game, and marks the end of CD Projekt Red’s creation of any new assets for the franchise at the moment, as the studio prepares its next release in Cyberpunk 2077. Nevertheless, developers aren’t completely abandoning ship on The Witcher 3 just yet, for when the popular action-RPG’s director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz declared that he wanted to make more games in the series, he also stated that CD Projekt Red will continue to release updates well into the foreseeable future should more issues arise.

In any event, with more than 90 new quests, nearly 30 hours of extra gameplay, and better graphics, it’s safe to say that Blood & Wine delivered on its promise to send Geralt out in a grand style befitting one of the best video game protagonists created in recent memory. So while everyone waits on CD Projekt Red’s forthcoming fixes for The Witcher 3, which shouldn’t take too long, we can all share in the anticipation of the studio possibly showing a new game at E3 2016.
