Little information known
CDPR has yet to comment on exactly what to expect from the next-gen patch for The Witcher 3. Except that some free armors inspired by the hit Netflix series are planned. However, the next-gen upgrade for Cyberpunk 2077 was released in February and brought some important improvements such as ray tracing support, faster loading times and dual-sense functions for the Playstation 5 controllers.
