The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. What can be said about this game that hasn’t already been said? It’s one of the best games and RPG’s of the past decade and generation. We all know this, it’s an awesome game. CD Projekt Red is also one of the better game developers out there with their very consumer friendly approach, and they are proving it again with this.
The Witcher 3 will be getting a free next-gen upgrade for those who already have the game. PC, Xbox Series X and PS5 will be getting the free upgrade. CD Projekt Red, you are knocking it out of the park with these announcements. Many companies out there wish they could be as consumer-friendly as you are. While there are games out there that do give you upgrades for even modern system upgrades, few give them for free.
Should The Witcher 3’s free upgrade be the norm?
Quite honestly, this should be the norm and standard for all future upgrades. No need to pay extra for a generational upgrade if you have the game (looking at you, Control). This is just good news all-around if you own The Witcher 3 and all of it’s expansions as you don’t have to pay a single dime to enjoy it on next-gen.
CD Projekt Red really is demonstrating that it’s putting the consumer first when it comes to their games. Cyberpunk 2077 is doing the same thing upon it’s release which is just awesome. This kind of freedom or ease of access to a game is something that really should be focused upon in the future. Games, especially older ones, have a hard time being accessible to people nowadays. Moves like this are great for it and help the consumer a lot in saving money while still enjoying their product.
