A new patch for “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” which originally would be made available before the release of the next expansion “Heart of Stone” will not be coming this month.
CD Projekt RED Community Manager Marcin Momot confirmed the news and stated that a precise date is still uncertain, “I wish I could give you the exact date but at this moment it’s not possible sorry. I think it’s safe to assume, however, that it won’t happen in September,” he said.
Although no information has been officially announced about the patch, it is expected that it will include a fix for the stuttering issues of the camera that happens during the animation loop of the horses. The team is said to have acknowledged the glitch previously and shared, “We’ve managed to address this problem and the ultimate fix will be introduced in the big patch released before the expansion pack #1,” Geek Snack reports.
The report added that there is another bug found that enables players to freeze enemies with the Yrden sign which hopefully will be resolved when the patch becomes accessible for download.
Meanwhile, Projekt RED Co-Founder Marcin Iwinski has given his statement regarding the speculations that the company behind Geralt of Riviera’s adventures will be sold and join forces with Electronic Arts, “We usually don’t comment on rumours but this one has become quite viral and we think it deserves to be put to bed. We are not talking with anyone regarding selling CD Projekt Red or GOG.com. Period.” He also mentioned that the circulating image of a pay slip that allegedly has been issued by their company is fake.
The Witcher 3 is currently rolling across platforms such as Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC while the expansion Heart of Stone will hit the market on October 13 for all formats.
