The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has had a tough time with its recent publicity. Since the launch of the next-gen update, there have been numerous missteps surrounding the title, especially for the PC version, although fan approval is still quite high. Now the game seems to have encountered another unfortunate problem that can’t be solved by simply replacing Geralt with Liam Hemsworth. In fact, its resolution requires a complete end to the curtain call. You might want to buckle up, as the latest controversy surrounding Witcher 3’s next-gen update involves the “unintentional” inclusion of realistic… private bits.
The next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt featured a lot of fan-made mods, and apparently one of them got the gaffe on CD Projekt Red. According to Kotaku, Crookback Bog’s women, who featured frontal nudity in the original game, now have highly detailed anatomy, complete with realistic pubic hair. Before the next-gen update, these characters had a blank canvas that usually showed their anatomy.
When asked, CD Projekt Red explained that these textures were accidentally merged with some other community-sourced mods and studio-made improvements. They plan to completely eliminate the unintended bug and return the genitalia to their pre-update ambiguous puppet format.

Some fans are wondering if this incident is really an accident as the company is known for showing private parts in newer titles. Something of this caliber is unlikely, however, as it’s well beyond the scope of most games. Maybe they actually wanted to create highly detailed cats and merged the wrong file?
