CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński has revealed that a new Witcher game is coming our way (eventually). The catch is that we’ll have to wait until Cyberpunk 2077 is out the door before work begins in earnest.
Kiciński broke the news to a group of journalists (thanks, Gamesradar) that a “relatively clear concept” has already been established for the next entry in the Witcher series. The new entry, however, won’t be a direct sequel to 2015’s smash The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, nor will it be titled The Witcher 4.
Presumably, since Cyberpunk 2077 is aiming for a September release date, work will begin on the new Witcher game soon after.
Kiciński also said that CD Projekt RED’s current planned games will be based in either the Witcher or Cyberpunk universe. A smaller team from within the studio is being resourced for development on the new Witcher game, while continued development on Cyberpunk 2077 will be handled by two larger teams.
No other significant information was revealed, though it’s safe to say that the game will be planned for the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
