New Witcher game (form of) confirmed, but it won’t be Witcher 4
CD Projekt Red has admitted they’ve acquired ‘an appetite for more’ when it involves The Witcher, even when there won’t be a numbered sequel.
It’s always been made clear that CD Projekt has no plans to make The Witcher 4, despite the runaway success of the last game.
Apart from anything they’re going to be busy with Cyberpunk 2077 for the next several years, but more than a year ago they admitted to investors that some kind of new game is a possibility.
And now, in a new interview with Polish website Bankier.pl, CEO Adam Kiciński has all but confirmed that they do plan to make more Witcher games.
‘The first three Witchers were by definition a trilogy, so we simply could not name the next game The Witcher 4,’ said Kiciński.
‘This does not mean, of course, that we will leave the world of The Witcher, created by us for over a dozen years. The Witcher is one of two franchises on which to build in the future activities of the company. Today, unfortunately, I cannot reveal anything more.’
That pretty unambiguous and it’s hard not to draw conclusions when Kiciński says the company is also working on another unannounced game alongside Cyberpunk 2077.
Fans have long speculated that a new game, or perhaps a whole new trilogy, staring Ciri would be the obvious way to go, but as you can see Kiciński doesn’t go into that kind of detail.
CD Projekt hasn’t given up Geralt entirely though, as he’s guest-starring in Bandai Namco’s SoulCalibur VI later this year.
There’s also a Witcher tabletop role-playing game coming up, the Netflix TV show, and ongoing collectible card game Gwent.
