The patch of The Witcher 3 makes a false start on PC
A lot of PC players have indeed had big problems since the update and some bugs completely prevent them from launching their The Witcher 3. A large number of users point the finger in particular at the ray tracing which would literally crash the game at startup. Moreover, the problem was even noticed on Steam Deck, Valve’s handheld PC/console. aware of the problem, CD Project wanted to speak to reassure the fans. The studio is currently working on the problem and intends to correct the situation as soon as possible. So you have to be patient.
We are aware of the issues reported by PC gamers since last night’s update. We are actively investigating all reports and will update you on specific issues as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience !
Like a smell of Cyberpunk 2077
The problem is that the players are quickly climbing the towers and are already starting to burn developers on social networks. The update was indeed very, very expected and many people rushed to the game as soon as the patch went online, the emotional lift that followed must not have pleased everyone.
With this failed new start and the specter of the chaotic launch of Cyberpunk 2077 still very present, CD Projekt must certainly have a few sweats by now. But there is no doubt that the problems will be quickly corrected. For the moment, indeed, we will simply have to wait.
Between this patch of The Witcher 3 and the disaster launch of The Callisto Protocoldefinitely, the big releases on PC have a hard time finishing 2022.
