The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's final secret has been discovered, and it's a real testament to the size, scope, and scale of the celebrated adventure that it took players this long.

CD Projekt RED's sprawling open-world RPG filled with side activities, diversions, and shocking secrets. The mystery of The Witcher 3's world is so alluring that it's little wonder fans still can't put it down.

The Witcher 3 is better than ever on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X thanks to the gorgeous new-gen update, which you can see in action below!

As someone who's played The Witcher 3 all the way through several times on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 5, it's fair to say I thought I'd seen it all. But my mind was as blown as anyone else's when the game's final secret was unearthed by players around one year ago.

YouTuber xLetalis spent over a year searching for one specific Easter egg in The Witcher 3 after one of game's quest designers, Philipp Weber, hinted that there was one more to find.

xLetalis had previously made a video about Vivienne de Tabris, one of the characters in the amazing Blood And Wine expansion. Weber responded to the upload, asking when players might finally find "Vivienne's last secret".

Predictably, the community took this as a challenge and rallied to find what Weber had been referring to. With the search narrowed down, xLetalis was finally able to find it. If you're keen to find out what, exactly, it was, we need to talk spoilers for a moment.

Geralt first meets Vivienne in a Blood And Wine quest called 'The Warble of a Smitten Knight'. He discovers that the lady-in-waiting has been the victim of a terrible curse since birth, one that is slowly turning her into a bird. Standard fantasy fare.

While the quest has multiple endings, one solution sees the cursed moved from Vivienne to a bird's egg. Alas, there's always a catch where magic is involved, and in this case it's that Vivienne will be dead in seven years.

Assuming this is the option you pursue, Vivienne will choose to spend her remaining years exploring the world. And so, xLetalis used The Witcher 3's console commands to move Vivienne to Skellige and speed up time to pass seven full years in-game. As it turns out, poor old Vivienne does, in fact, drop down dead. Not the happiest Easter egg, I admit.
