The extensive update for The Witcher 3, which was just recently released for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X, had different things in tail for different groups of players: In view of the technical problems on this platform, it has mainly been a headache for PC players so far, but all other hobby witchers are happy about the exciting hunt for Henry Cavill's armor from the Netflix series as part of a new quest. Another group is not missing out: the hunters of Easter Eggs.

YouTuber xLetalis (thanks, IGN) discovered a reference to one of the biggest unsolved mysteries of Cyberpunk 2077 – another CD Projekt game – in the newly polished world of The Witcher 3.

The mystery, commonly known as FF:06:B5, revolves around the eponymous sequence that can be found on several statues in Night City, in front of which monks often pray. An entire community has taken it upon themselves to solve this mystery – so far without success.

Could the fresh discovery provide a critical clue? The reference in question can be found in a new area in the south of Velen, where three ruins were added in the update. Each structure contains a lever, the activation of which opens a portal. This teleports players to a nearby mountain, from where they can reach a strange room.

This room contains the Easter Egg – a symbol painted on the wall with the pairs of letters FF, VQ, BZ, KW, and GB on the outer sides of a circle and the sequences FP, OVE, and YAR on the inside. The symbol itself clearly resembles the icons known from Cyberpunk 2077. The numbers, Mason, what do they mean?

Whether there is actually a valuable clue there or not, this sure isn't the first crossover between CD Projekt's two hits: Cyberpunk 2077 features a magazine with The Witcher protagonist Ciri on the cover, who herself reports visiting a parallel world during the events of The Witcher 3 that clearly sounds like the world of Cyberpunk. Makes your head spin a bit, doesn't it?
