While game developer CD Projekt Red is currently occupied getting their long in the works future-set video game “Cyberpunk 2077” ready for prime time, the company isn’t going to ignore “The Witcher” franchise which is what it made its name on.
The game series effectively wrapped with its third entry with developers indicating there were no plans for another sequel. However, speaking with Polish gaming outlet Bankier (via VG24/7), the company’s CEO Adam Kicinski revealed that while Geralt of Rivia’s adventures are over – the franchise could still get another game:
“The first three Witchers were by definition a trilogy, so we simply could not name the next game The Witcher 4. 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 can not reveal anything more.”
It has been suggested that Geralt’s surrogate daughter Ciri could take the lead role in a new “Witcher” game, but alternatively a game could forgo another linear entry and simply use the same setting albeit at a different point in time.
Despite being shown off at E3, the company’s immediate next game – “Cyberpunk 2077” – hasn’t set a release date as yet.
