However, what else do we know about Geralt's most-thrilling adventure? Below, we have everything you need to know.
Right now, we don't know anything specific about the PS5 and Series X release of Witcher 3. Is this surprising? Given the year that CDPR has had already, no.
What is surprising though is that we're still getting it in 2021 and this has been confirmed.
After the debacle of Cyberpunk 2077, we'd imagine that CDPR is cautious to promise anything new without solid evidence on their end that they'll be able to keep to their word.
With this in mind, we're expecting to see The Witcher 3 on PS5 and Xbox Series X at some point in the second half of 2021.
It's vague, we know, but this is still an important reaffirmation and welcome news to fans of the title.
Story & Content
This might not come as a surprise to many of you, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X will have both major expansions.
The Witcher 3 has been out for a little while now. It originally launched in 2015 and remains one of the best action-RPG titles to ever be released.
Since this 2015 release, two major expansions and a slew of smaller content DLC additions have been added to The Witcher 3's growing content library and it looks like all of these will be coming to the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
But, why wouldn't it? At this point, the Game of the Year Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is so cheap on sales that it wouldn't make any sense not to pick it up.
There is no word that any additional content is being created for the game, but with an average time-to-beat of over 100 hours... It really doesn't need it.
As you might imagine, The Witcher 3 on the PS5 and Xbox Series X is going to be a little more than just a re-release.
Although we haven't heard anything too specific for a little while now, we do know that the standard array of graphical improvements will be coming to the next-gen version of the game.
This means we're getting ray-tracing, faster load times, smoother frame rates and most-likely 4K, or at least Upscaled 4K, visuals.
" Developed to take advantage of the most powerful gaming hardware, the next-gen edition of the game will feature a range of visual and technical improvements — including ray tracing and faster loading times — across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content"
The new version of The Witcher 3 was announced last September before both next-gen consoles were even out, but we can't imagine this has changed at all.
More Witcher Content?
We know that we've got a second season for Netflix's The Witcher series, but what about Witcher content from CDPR themselves?
Well, following a discussion on how they will operate going forwards, CDPR shared this rather basic 2021 roadmap with us.

It doesn't showcase too much but it does confirm that the Mobile AR title The Witcher: Monster Slayer is due in 2021 alongside the Witcher 3 on PS5 and Series X.
Gwent is also a thing, but a lot of you will be nonplussed about why this still a thing and we're not sure what to tell you.
Looking into 2022, it seems like The Witcher series will become much more of a focus for CDPR going forwards so... Could The Witcher 4 be on the horizon?
