The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was first released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC back in 2015, followed by a current-gen console release last year. However, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S upgrade came in the form of a free upgrade, as well as a digital release on the platform’s official stores. Then, following an accidental announcement by an online retailer, CD Projekt Red confirmed that it would be releasing physical editions of The Witcher 3 for current-gen consoles.

In a statement to Insider Gaming, CD Projekt Red said that the editions would include “a disc containing the base game and the Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine expansions. All official DLCs and upgrades released during the last seven years by CD PROJEKT RED will also be part of this set — including the free next-gen update, featuring dozens of visual, performance, and technical enhancements.”

The only thing left to be confirmed was the release date, which the company officially announced earlier today would be January 26th in select locations.
