Unfortunately for CD Projekt RED, updates don’t always fix things, sometimes they cause problems.
Earlier this week, CD Projekt Red released The Witcher 3 update 1.22 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it brought with it tons of fixes, tweaks and enhancements. However, a while after the update, PS4 users started reporting problems when trying to interact with NPCs or quest items.
CD Projekt Red‘s Marcin Momot said they are aware of the issue and currently working on a fix. He also advised those encountering the issue to “hold on to your save files from version 1.20 and wait for an update from us.”
“We’ve received reports from some gamers playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4 about not being able to interact with NPCs and quest items after applying patch 1.22. We would like to inform you that we’re actively working on addressing this issue and would like to thank you for your patience in the meantime. Should you encounter this issue, we kindly ask you to hold on to your save files from version 1.20 and wait for an update from us.”
Hopefully, we’ll see a fix soon enough.
