No release date
At the moment, the Polish developer has not confirmed any launch window. The new consoles, meanwhile, are still dated for the end of the year. While Microsoft’s system will hit stores in November, Sony’s has yet to set a more specific date.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt follows the story of the sorcerer Geralt of Rivia, a mutant who travels the world with the aim of eliminating the most bloodthirsty monsters from the different territories, always after signing a contract, since Geralt does not usually work for free . The title was also adapted to Nintendo Switch by Saber Interactive.
