Kotaku received an email from a CD Projekt Red representative after covering the original story and getting the statement, which said: “In addition to numerous internal improvements made by CD PROJEKT RED, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s next-generation release includes a number of community-sourced mods. The textures in question were an unintended outcome of the difficult process of combining everything, which is why they are included in the released version. We are attempting to deal with this.” GameSpot also requested a comment but did not hear back before the article was published.
Kotaku was the source of the initial report and CD Projekt Red’s statement. However, the Bruxa enemies and the crones from Crookback Bog (in one, late-game cutscene) do appear fully nude, even in the original version of the game. The majority of the game’s romantic scenes do not feature full frontal female nudity. The current version has more realistic nudity, whereas the earlier version obscured genitalia with a Barbie-like effect. When Kotaku asked CD Projekt Red for comment, they said, “We’re looking into it and will have more information in the coming days,” which left it unclear why this inclusion was made.
Soon after the article went live, CD Projekt Red told Kotaku that it would be releasing an update to take out the mistaken addition. Unintentional nudity was a problem in Cyberpunk 2077 as well, though those problems were a result of the game’s buggy release.
