Few fantasy RPGs are as critically acclaimed as CD Projekt Red’s open-world epic, The Witcher 3. Released on PS4, Xbox One and PC back in 2015 and later ported to the Nintendo Switch in 2019, The Witcher 3 is widely regarded as one of the best games of the last generation. Now, following the Polish studio’s recent announcement that a free next-gen upgrade is just around the corner, many folks are wondering when is it coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S?
