‘The Witcher 3' Seems Headed To Another Major Gaming Service

‘The Witcher 3' Seems Headed To Another Major Gaming Service

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, one of the most acclaimed games ever made, might be arriving on PlayStation Now in the next week or so.


Reddit user jcsce shared a screenshot of the streaming service's landing page on their PlayStation 5, which clearly shows The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Sonic Forces, Sonic Mania and Team Sonic Racing in the "Recently Added" bracket. As part of the Sonic Central announcements for the 30th anniversary of the series, Sega revealed that those three Sonic games would be added to PlayStation Now for players to enjoy ahead of the launch of Sonic Colors Ultimate. However, neither CD Projekt Red nor Sony have made mention of the celebrated RPG coming to PlayStation Now. Someone might have let the Chort out of the bag.

Unacquainted with the charms of The Continent? Never fear. Us lot at GAMINGbible will give you the lowdown on Skellige, a breezy yet beautiful island archipelago off the coast of Cintra.



Furthermore, you're also able to see that Car Mechanic Simulator is on that same list in the player's screenshot. When you combine all of these titles with the knowledge that Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown is on its way to PlayStation Now too, it's a tidy contribution to the collection of games on the service. Compared to PlayStation Plus, some subscribers feel a tad shortchanged in spite of having over 700 games from three different generations. Last year, people saw the same games offered for PS Plus and PS Now for a three-month period and it's safe to say that it ruffled a few feathers.

I'm sure that a lot of people will be pleased that The Witcher 3 might be a part of the subscription service, even if they've already played it once through on another platform. Our own Ewan Moore originally didn't vibe with the purposeful pace of the first few hours, but once it clicked, he couldn't get the game out of his head. "Whether it's a monster nest, hidden treasure, or even just a truly massive monster that's capable of tearing Geralt apart in just a few hits, CD Projekt RED crafted a world with a real sense of place," he explained in his retrospective on the RPG. "Much of it comes from the fact that CDPR put everything it had into making this world feel truly alive, and ensuring that no two points of interest ever quite felt the same."

Additions to PlayStation Now are scheduled to go live on the first Tuesday of every month, which works out to be June 1st. It's worth noting that the game left Xbox Game Pass earlier this year, so it's possible that Sony snagged the rights for The Witcher 3 for PlayStation Now. Of course, we'll have to wait and see, but it is seeming promising.
