The Witcher 3 is getting a patch to fix the technical issues of the next-gen update
The seven-year-old Witcher 3 received an update for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X / S in the middle of the month. Unfortunately, in addition to beautifying the game, it also brought a number of technical difficulties, especially on computers, which must be solved by the hotfix that has just been released.
According to the patch notes, the update aims to improve the game’s stability and performance, as well as fix issues with the Steam and GOG launcher overlay panels.
Game stability and performance are umbrella terms that can mean many things – but in the case of The Witcher 3 on PC, players have often complained about sudden drops in frames per second ( especially with ray tracing on) or loading in texture mode. Yesterday’s update should and hopefully will fix these problems. If the game is still your hand after applying it, you have the option to return to the state before the update, but therefore you must return to the version from 2016, when the last major update was released.
CD Projekt community manager Marcin Momot specified on his Twitter that the new patch on Steam is 3 GB in size, if you have the game on GOG, you only need to download 1.9 GB thanks to the compression .
A hotfix that should improve the overall stability and performance of the game has just gone live on PC. Please be sure to update your version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and let us know how you are finding it.

In addition, the next gen update has just arrived on the Origin platform from Electronic Arts, where it did not appear last week, unlike other launchers. However, on the official forum of CD Projekt, several users are complaining that they are still having problems updating The Witcher 3 through Origin, so I recommend you to be patient.
