In the pantheon of console RPGs, there are only a handful of franchises that have improved with each passing entry - 'Elder Scrolls', 'Dragon Age', and 'The Witcher'.

Although the joke is that 'Skyrim' is being ported to just about every console there is - it's even on Stadia, for feck sake - 'The Witcher 3' has been a bit more considered. That said, CD Projekt Red announced today that the game is making the leap to next-gen consoles.

Per the official release by CD Projekt Red, the new versions will "feature a range of visual and technical improvements — including ray tracing and faster loading times — across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content."

Not only that, the game will be available as a free update for those who have the game on PS4 or Xbox One, or as a standalone purchase for the PS5 and Xbox Series X if you somehow didn't buy it the first time it was released.

CD Projekt Red are also still grinding away on 'Cyberpunk 2077', easily one of the most anticipated games of the year - so between this, revamping 'The Witcher 3', and 'Gwent', they've got a lot of plates spinning.

Here's the original trailer for 'The Witcher 3'.
