The worlds of The Continent and Night City have appeared to be more connected as an Easter Egg seemingly tied to CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 has been discovered. This Easter Egg was likely added to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the recent Next-Gen update, released in December 2022.
The Witcher has been referenced in Cyberpunk 2077, with Ciri appearing on a magazine cover if players chose the Corpo path; the discovered Easter Egg has taken a life of its own in online forums. We’ve detailed how to find the Cyberpunk 2077 Easter Egg in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
4th March 2023 Update: We've updated this guide with more speculations regarding the Cyberpunk 2077 Easter Egg in The Witcher 3, with some players citing the circle surrounding the triangle, likely a reference to the Ouroboros serpent and the mask that was last used in the Skellige Isles. The original guide continues below.
Where To Find The Cyberpunk 2077 Easter Egg In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?
While we won’t divulge into the possible meanings and mysticism behind the Easter Egg, we can only guide players as to where it can be found in-game. Popular Witcher content creator xLetalis, who first reported on this discovery, uploaded a video to their YouTube channel on where it can be found and touched on its possible meanings.
You'll need to travel to Velen and find the Destroyed Bastion, located southwest of the Crossroads Signpost. Be cautious when entering this area, as guarded treasure nearby, including the Bear School armor diagrams, which have been looted. The Nilfgaardian Army campsite is also located nearby.
Overlooking the area from the bastion, you'll notice three destroyed buildings in the distance. When exploring each building, there is a light switch that you can interact with; Geralt will note that these switches are “interesting.”
Once all switches have been activated, an Earth-Elemental creature spawns in the vicinity. Defeating this creature will summon a portal at one of the buildings atop a small hill. Approach the portal for it to be activated, and walk through it (Geralt hates portals); it will teleport the Witcher to the top of the bastion to a destroyed room.
With no way up, Geralt can only go down, which you’ll need to drop into a dark cavernous space where indestructible Wraiths will spawn. Next, you’ll have to move into the next room through the door available, where more indestructible Wraiths spawn, but there are two inactive crystals in this room.
Activating them using Aard will produce some interesting dialogue, where Geralt wishes he had Yennifer summon a portal for him. Speaking of portals, a green portal will appear in the center of the room, which walking into it, teleports Geralt out of the room and the bastion itself.
But before exiting through the portal, there’s an unbreakable wall behind one of the crystals, which has some fascinating iconography emblazed around it. Upon closer inspection, the iconography depicts a magenta-hued triangle with Glagolitic text surrounding it.
By looking at the triangle itself, it bears engravings that have appeared on statues found across Night City with the code “FF:06:B5”. A subreddit dedicated to solving this mysterious reference has fired up both the Cyberpunk and The Witcher communities as to what this all means; the inclusion of this in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt could be merely a coincidence or part of a bigger picture altogether.
