The updated version of the role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been released today on PC and game consoles. Almost immediately after that, Steam users flooded the gaming forums with reports of poor game optimization.
Almost everyone agrees that the picture in the game has become better, but even on the most powerful computers, it is difficult for fans to achieve the coveted 60 frames per second.
Below are some user reviews:
- 3090, 5120×1440 and 40 FPS;
- 3090, all settings are maxed out at 1080p, and the frame rate is barely holding at 60 fps
- 2070 Super and 1080p. Can’t even load a game with ray tracing enabled;
- The most important change in update 4.0, which for some reason was not indicated, is the complete lack of optimization.
In their reviews, journalists noted that the console version of the game can freeze at maximum quality, although this did not affect the average score. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition for PlayStation 5 averaged a score of 97 out of 100 on Metacritic after 15 reviews.
CD Projekt RED has yet to make an official statement in response to criticism from PC gamers.

Sales of Xbox and Microsoft games sank. The company reported for the next financial quarter
Microsoft has published a report on the results of the second quarter of fiscal year 2023.
The company’s revenue rose 2% to $52.7 billion, while net income fell 12% to $16.4 billion.
This is far from Microsoft’s best quarter. These results are due to several reasons. First, there is a decline in revenue from manufacturers of laptops with Windows and PC sales in the market as a whole. Secondly, sales of Microsoft devices sank by a considerable 39%.
Also not the best way to feel in the last quarter and the gaming division of the company. In general, the Xbox division was marked by a decrease in revenue. Game sales fell by 13%, hardware sales fell by the same amount, that is, primarily consoles, and revenue from services and services decreased by 12%.
At the same time, Microsoft notes the further growth of the Game Pass service, but, as always, does not name the number of users and revenue.
