CD Projekt Red says we will see another game in The Witcher series

CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kiciński has said the studio will revisit the beloved fantasy series, although it won’t be called ‘The Witcher 4.’

Currently hard at work on Cyberpunk 2077, a return to Geralt of Rivia’s grim yet gorgeous world is likely the last thing on CD Projekt Red’s mind right now.

However, a return will happen, at least according to Kiciński. Speaking to Polish finance site Bankier, Kiciński said the following (via Google Translate):

“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.”

Kiciński is very aware of the popularity surrounding the once cult RPG series, and there’s no doubt fans would love another entry in the coming years. 

“The Witcher is one of two franchises on which to build the future activities of the company,” he said. “Today, unfortunately, I can not reveal anything more.”

Where this mystery title will take place remains a mystery, although it’s clear that Geralt of Rivia’s journey is over. Perhaps the torch will be passed to Ciri from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?

Having been taught by Geralt as a child in how to work and behave like a Witcher, she also played a prevalent part in the game’s narrative. As potential protagonists go, she’s one we’d love to see expanded upon.

We likely won’t hear more for a while, or, at least until the release of Cyberpunk 2077, which itself is still a few years away from completion. However, it continues to look absolutely fantastic.
