The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may have been delayed until 2015, but that doesn’t mean that CD Projekt RED will be waiting to unveil new details about the next-gen title as the developer will start showing off the game to the public starting next week. On June 5, CD Projekt will host a livestream event in which they will reveal new gameplay footage for The Witcher 3 in addition to discussing when pre-orders will begin as well as releasing the first bit of information on the Collector’s Edition of the upcoming game as Polygon reported on May 28.

The Summer Conference will be broadcast on GOG.com and will focus on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The livestream will give fans an early look of the game ahead of this year’s E3 event. Those wanting news on CD Projekt’s other upcoming release, Cyberpunk 2077, will have to wait until a later day as the developer has already confirmed that the title won’t be shown during the conference.

In order to create the best game possible, CD Projekt RED opted to only develop The Witcher 3 for the new generation of consoles. As such, the title will only appear on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC and won’t be available on Xbox 360 or PS3 so that the game won’t be watered down in order to work on last-gen platforms. Also in the hopes of building a better product, the game was originally scheduled to release later this year but has now been pushed back to February 2015 so that the title has extra time for polish.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will tell the third and final adventure of the series’ protagonist, Geralt. Featuring a massive open-world, the game is said to feature hundreds of hours of side missions in addition to the main storyline. With next-gen system specs pushing the franchise forward, The Witcher 3 will be the most graphically impressive entry that the series has seen.
