Reddit user govind1262 sent an email to the Polish developer asking if a patch for the imminent PS4 Pro was in the works, and the response was as follows.
“Thank you for your feedback and question. I’m afraid that we have no plans to release the PS4 Pro edition for The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt. Our team is currently working very hard on GWENT: The Witcher Card Game and Cyberpunk 2077. We want to be entirely focused on the development of these projects.”
CD Projekt Red later confirmed the news with Eurogamer.
“Since we want to fully focus on Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent, and converting The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from a full HD game into a 4K one would be too much of a time and resource-consuming process, we decided not to release an edition of Wild Hunt supporting the new features of PlayStation Pro,” the company said.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the most successful game for CD Project Red, both critically and commercially. It has shipped 10 million copies worldwide and also took the throne from The Last of Us for winning the most Game of the Year awards.
CD Project Red has released a Game of the Year edition of the game recently that featured all the updates and expansions for the game on disc.
A number of existing and upcoming games are receiving support for PS4 Pro features, including 4K and HDR (which is now available on all PS4s), or improved visual effects and frame rates when playing at 1080p. Specifics for most of the games confirmed to receive Pro upgrades have not yet been announced.
