Actually, truth be told, even I'm not bothered about this next-gen upgrade. The vanilla Witcher 3 still looks awesome, along with graphics Mods. This new so-called next-gen update might be good for newcomers who haven't tried playing this game yet.You had me thinking at first it might be worth it just for the new DLC, but I generally don't get excited about mere skins. So the visual upgrade would have to be REALLY good for me to be interested, and even then, probably not worthwhile until I upgrade to an RTX GPU. That will likely be quite some time, as I hadn't planned on a major upgrade until a 4K display makes sense, which would be when 4K TV broadcasts are a reality. IF 4K broadcasts ever do happen since chip shortages, COVID, and the invasion of Ukraine turned the world upside down. It's a sad day when otherwise potentially exciting news becomes a downer because of such things.
And yes, honestly I also don't think this next-gen update will pack some serious visual overhaul, which might force old die-hard fans of this franchise to give it a try. Sure, the game will be slightly better optimized and polished this time (assuming the devs have put a lot of effort), but apart from this, I don't see any incentive to get too excited about this next-gen update.
