Developer CD Projekt Red just pushed a next-gen update live for The Witcher 3, but the upgrade appears to be doing more harm than good for some PC players.
After today’s free next-gen update, PC players are reporting massive frame rate drops and strange rendering of texture and model throughout The Witcher 3. Ending posts on The Witcher subreddit commonly mention Hardware creaks Side by side, but Geralt’s adventure doesn’t seem to have been fixed simply with expensive upgrades – plenty of users with high-end graphics cards have reported the same issues.
Some of the frame rate issues include drops below 60fps on NVIDIA 30-series cards, noting that the pre-update outperformed the latest version of The Witcher 3. These complaints seem to be relatively common, along with everything that’s going on with this turf. At least the grass makes people laugh.
The subreddit even has a file The Witcher 3 Troubleshooting Mega Theme Going to Update, an effort to crowd source answers for those facing everything from frequent crashes to memory leaks. Some of the game’s uglier PC hiccups include reports that save files won’t load, and other players who managed to get the game to work Call it “inoperable” Even at low settings.
While some users adjust their settings and try again, the usual method of restarting it again to troubleshoot PC games only seems to work for a few. For those looking to fix what they can up to a patch from CDPR, common suggestions for performance failures include: remove mods, disable ray tracing, boot in DirectX 11, and double check for GPU driver updates.
Of course, these are not general fixes and may only lead to minor improvements to larger issues. It is worth mentioning, As in this thread from u / samuskayYou can go back to your old build of The Witcher 3 to play without the next-gen upgrades, too. Steam and GOG versions both have a properties window available via right-click; There, you should be able to go back to the old versions.
At the end of CDPR, no official hotfix for PC performance is available yet, but the developer is aware of reports. on TwitterThe Witcher series’ official account noted that the team is “actively investigating all reports and will provide an update on specific issues as soon as possible.”
We’re aware of issues that PC players have reported since the update was released last night. We are actively investigating all reports and will provide an update on specific issues as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!

A certain degree of tweaking might be a common expectation among PC gamers, but CDPR’s performance disaster doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Cyberpunk 2077’s studio launch was a mess on PS4 It was pulled from PlayStation 4. The game’s disastrous launch also sparked numerous lawsuits, eventually end in settling.
