More fixes for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt coming to PC, consoles

CD Projekt RED getting set to churn out the next set of updates for their epic RPG.

There is no doubt that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is arguably the best game to release so far this year (though The Phantom Pain may have something to say about that). However, that does not preclude the fact that the game has had its share of performance issues. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who has played any of the other two Witcher games, who had their fair share of bugs as well. 

Fortunately, Developer CD Projekt RED has a very well deserved reputation for acknowledging errors and a history of patching their games long past their initial launch dates. Wild Hunt has followed the same path so far and Community Manager, Marcin Momot confirmed via Twitter that a couple of notable fixes are in the works.

Earlier this year, CD Projekt RED reaffirmed their commitment to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, when they stated that they would not talk about their upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077, until 2017. In an interview with Reuters, CEO Adam Kicinski stated, "We hope and we are certain that Cyberpunk has even bigger commercial potential. It is too early to talk about it, though. This year, and the next one will be the years of the Witcher".

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt released back in May of this year on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to widespread critical acclaim, earning an average Metacritic score of 92.3 across all platforms.

    Geralt steals from the poor and they say or do nothing glitch... oh wait, that's the game's actual design. Nevermind.

    So I guess I should hold out just a little longer before getting it if more fixes are on the way. Been thinking about it for a while now but trying to wait for the inevitable Steam sale. Might not last that long though....

    It really depends on your pet peeves when it comes to your game experiences. If you're a framerate junkie like I am, for the most part the game is ok. The big cities can slow down a bit, but other than that, it's fine.

    The quest glitches can be a bit troublesome, and sometimes waiting out a patch for a fix can end up making the rewards of the quest irrelevant if you've leveled up your character high enough.

    I will say that Wild Hunt is totally worth the 60 bucks I dropped, bugs and all. There's so much content to the game, and even more to come. It's good to know that the game is going to be supported for a while.

    I saw some stats the other day that The Witcher 3 has now sold 6 million copies.

    That is about double of The Witcher 2. Which is pretty crazy!

    I know not really related to a patch, but still cool.

    I think it's amazing that they've come as far as they have. The Witcher really is a tremendous series that sees its gameplay systems evolve from entry to entry that very few game series' are willing to do nowadays.

    Absolutely! And look at what it's doing, making them more and more successful!

    Agreed. I can't wait to see what they do with their upcoming Cyberpunk 2077.

    It will be a long wait, but I have no doubt it will be worth it!

    Yeah, but the combat is a bit too basic and automated and the looting by robbing people's home whilst they act oblivious are still cheesy.

    These design issues could have been addressed.
