    CD Projekt RED zrezygnuje z obsługi Windows 7 i Windows 8.1

    CD Projekt RED, the renowned Polish video game studio, has made the decision to cease testing and support for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 systems. This decision stems from the fact that Microsoft has officially ended support for these outdated operating systems.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will still function on computers running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, but as of May 17, 2024, developers will no longer release updates and additions specifically for these systems. This means that fans playing on older systems will miss out on new content and enhancements that could be available to users of newer operating system versions.

    However, CD Projekt RED is no longer solely focused on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The studio is working on new projects, including the continuation of the Witcher series and the productions known as The Witcher Syriusz and The Witcher Canis Majoris. Canis Majoris, titled as a remake of the first Witcher game, will utilize the Unreal Engine 5.

    Despite discontinuing support for older systems, CD Projekt RED still cares about its fans. The studio has announced the release of a free mod editor for The Witcher 3, allowing players to create their own adventures in the game. This editor, based on the REDengine 3, will be available in 2024.

    It is worth noting that the decision to discontinue support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 is justified by the end of technical support and security updates for these systems. Nevertheless, fans of the game may consider updating their operating systems in order to continue enjoying full support and the latest improvements in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
