The next Witcher game will not be titled "The Witcher 4" and will begin development after Cyberpunk 2077 launches this September.
When there’s a demand for more The Witcher content, CD Projekt Red is always happy to supply. That may be why the Polish developer’s next title, already confirmed to be set in Witcher-verse, will begin development as soon as Cyberpunk 2077 launches.
In a recent meeting with journalists, as reported by Eurogamer, CD Projekt Red President Adam Kiciński said that some effort has already gone into the studio’s next title. “We have already been working on another single-player game; we have created a relatively clear concept that is waiting for further development,” said Kiciński via translation. “And this is already happening, although we do not want to spend time at the moment.”
Obviously, not much is known about this upcoming Witcher title, as it still seems to be in the conceptual phase. It does seem players will not be filling the shoes of Geralt any more. Kiciński made it clear that this upcoming game wouldn’t be titled “The Witcher 4″ and that it is “embedded in the Witcher universe. Development of the game is planned to be carried out by two of the developer’s smaller teams. The remainder will be directed towards “network mode and additions to Cyberpunk 2077.”
This leaves the future of the Witcher series in a good, albeit unclear, place. It’s fantastic to know that another game in the series is coming out and that Cyberpunk 2077 won’t suffer for it.
