Seeing a PS5 or Xbox Series X version of The Witcher 3 would be great, but CD Projekt Red has a lot going on at the moment.

The Witcher 4 was recently announced, with the developer pushing to create the next chapter in the franchise's history. Although production is early, it's the developer's next big thing that's likely to be huge.

On the other hand, Cyberpunk 2077 is still in rehab after its disastrous launch. Cyberpunk 2077 recently released its own next-gen update, and the development team behind it is finally starting to move away from the game's gameplay to create expansions.

With the troubled release of Cyberpunk 2077 still fresh, there's a danger that if the next-gen update for The Witcher 3 lands in a flawed state, it will further hurt the company.

The question now is will the update materialize or will the developer decide it's not worth it at this point? On that, we will have to see.
