CD Projekt continue to tweak The Witcher 3 and have outlined what’s coming up.
While many of you may still be trying to improve performance depending on what card you are using, CD Projekt are working away on bug fixes but are also continuing to address stability and persistent issues like the camera smoothness. A post on their forums highlights some of the upcoming changes/fixes which include improved stability, that XP fix, and general performance.
