CD Projekt Red has confirmed that it is now working on several patches for the next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and is investigating issues following the release of patch 4.01.
Patch 4.01 was released earlier this month for current-gen consoles and PC and introduced a variety of new improvements, mostly focused on overall stability and performance, as well as adding a new performance mode for ray-traced global lighting and more.
The developer has since shared an update on what it plans to address with future patches, and is currently looking into issues reported by players. “After Patch 4.01, we wanted to talk a little bit about some of the issues the team is currently working on and better understand what’s coming next,” CD Projekt Red said in a new forum post. “We are working on patches for the game and are investigating all the reports you are sending us – please keep them coming!”
One glaring issue is poor performance on next-gen consoles following the release of 4.01, with players reporting a noticeable drop in framerate in performance mode, and it’s especially noticeable in areas like Novigrad and Beauclair.
Along with some general system issues the developer is looking into, he also explained that the Battle Preparations quest that was supposed to be fixed with 4.01 is still unresolved and is working on a patch, saying, “We are aware that some players who have experienced An issue where it could be impossible to interact with Avallac’h prior to patch 4.01, now there may be an issue where there are no dialogue options that can progress the quest after the fix. We are working on the underlying cause and steps to reproduce it “
