CD Projekt ‘aware of issues’ with the long-awaited The Witcher 3 update on PC

The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red has released a statement acknowledging the technical issues many PC players are experiencing today after installing the long-awaited Next Gen Update.

Throughout the day, users have been taking to social media and Steam’s review section to state their feelings about the game’s performance on their PC. In general, the suggestion is that the game penalizes CPUs – even high-end ones – if you have ray tracing turned on.

Some users said they’ve since used Steam’s undo function to completely remove the update.

Digital Foundry is getting an early preview of the update – on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

“We are aware of issues that PC players have reported since the update was released last night,” CD Projekt said in a statement posted to Twitter this afternoon. “We are actively investigating all reports and will provide an update on specific issues as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!”

Marcin Momot, spokesperson for CD Projekt added. Once again, thanks everyone for your patience!

Users called the update a “mess” and criticized its optimization, and the game’s Steam page saw a sharp rise in negative ratings today.

“RTX 3080 here. I went to Novigrad with ray tracing, I was probably under 30fps regardless of resolution,” said one user. “It’s incredible.”

Others have suggested that the update should have been optional, so that users would have a clear choice on whether or not to accept its changes.

“I didn’t want or ask for a free auto-download next-gen update,” another person wrote. “I’m still running an i7-4770 with a gtx-1660ti and 36GB of RAM. The game was running great. Now it’s a hot mess. I feel as though my game has been stolen from me. This wasn’t what I bought. This should be a download Optional DLC.”

CD Projekt’s statement indicates that the studio knows it’s somewhat missed the mark. Many onlookers also pointed out that it brings back memories of the company’s troubled previous launch, Cyberpunk 2077.

Digital Foundry is currently having The Witcher 3’s new update under the microscope for both PC and consoles – which we haven’t heard of similar issues. Wait for their verdict.
