The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, stylized as The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, is a Action role-playing game developed by CD Projekt Red and published by CD Projekt and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. The game was released on May 18, 2015. The game is the third in the series, preceded by The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which are based on the series of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

Played in a third-person perspective, players control protagonist Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a witcher, who sets out on a long journey through the Northern Kingdoms. In the game, players battle against the world's many dangers using swords and magic, while interacting with non-player characters and completing side quests and main missions to progress through the story. The game was met with critical acclaim and was a financial success, selling over 6 million copies in six weeks. The game won over 200 Game of the Year awards from various gaming websites, critics, and game award shows, including the Golden Joystick Awards and The Game Awards.
