The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is making its way to Switch on October 15, CD Projekt Red announced today. It was previously announced for release sometime this year.

Here’s a new trailer:

One of the announcements made during last week’s Nintendo Direct was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Switch. The acclaimed game will reach the system later this year.

After the reveal was made, VGC spoke with UI coordinator Alvin Liu about the port. While there are “hardware trade-offs” involving draw distance and less foliage, CD Projekt Red believes the game “looks amazing” on Switch.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is known to be a pretty massive game. On all platforms, it’s a huge game to download. What does that mean for Switch?

Believe it or not, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition will be roughly 32GB on Switch. All signs also point to the full game being on the cartridge at present rather than having to download any extra data. We’ll let you know if anything changes, but the situation sounds very encouraging.


CD Projekt Red has shared an official announcement for the Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition. Find the full press release below.

Update: Fabian Mario Döehla has since indicated that the talk isn’t to be taken seriously. He’s looking forward to NX personally, but it doesn’t seem like he has any major inside knowledge.

The Witcher series developer CD Projekt Red believes that the NX “will be fantastic.” That’s according to the company’s communications manager Fabian Mario Döehla, who spoke in vague terms about Nintendo’s new console during a Rocket Beans TV interview as translated by NintenGen.

Here’s the full exchange between the two sides:

Host: What do you know about NX?

Fabian: It will be fantastic. As developer [CD Projekt] you get access to the hardware and everybody [at CD Projekt] is looking forward. We know things.

Host: Are you lying now?

Fabian: No, no.

Host: Sometimes I cannot tell if you are telling the truth or not.

While it should hardly be a surprise, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn’t planned for Wii U. CD Projekt Red Community manager Marcin Momot told

When asked if a Wii U version of The Witcher 3 could be in the cards, Momot said that the team is “focused on developing the game for PS4, Xbox One and PC.”

Momot’s quote in full:

At this moment we are not planning to release The Witcher 3 on Wii U. We are focused on developing the game for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
