Xbox One Witcher 3 patch will lock frame rate at 30FPS

CD Projekt Red to release new patch for the Xbox One edition of the open-world RPG soon.

An upcoming patch for the Xbox One edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will lock the game at 30fps. That's according to CD Projekt Red community lead Marcin Momot, who offered the following statement.

A Digital Foundry tech analysis published last week found that the Xbox One edition could, at times, achieve a resolution higher than 30fps. That might sound nice, but the frame rate was also found to be quite unstable. Sometimes it dipped below 30fps, leading to an undesirable stuttery experience.

The Xbox One patch is currently going through Microsoft's certification process, which means, barring any problems, it should be released soon. A PlayStation 4 patch, which also promises to improve performance, was released earlier today.

Although the console versions of The Witcher 3 are only just now receiving their first patches, the PC edition of the RPG has already been updated on multiple occasions.
