It “wouldn’t be fair” to not make The Witcher 4, says CD Projekt Red

Developer CD Projekt Red has said it would be “unfair” on fans to not continue The Witcher franchise.

Geralt’s story seemingly concluded in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which launched earlier this year.

However, CD Projekt Red isn’t done with The Witcher franchise, and has plans for a fourth instalment in the future.

“It’s too early to talk about it, but it’s not like we’re forgetting about this brand,” Studio CEO Adam Kicinski said on Polish TV station TVN24 BiS (via Gamepressure).

“It wouldn’t be fair towards the fans. We work within this universe for over a dozen years now and I don’t think it’s going to be the end of it.”

So a sequel to The Witcher 3 is a long way off, but it’s exciting to know that CD Projekt Red hasn’t given up on the beloved franchise.

The Witcher 3’s second expansion, Blood and Wine, is expected to launch in Q1 2016; so fans won’t have to wait too long to get their witching fix.

Blood and Wine is set to introduce an entirely new region known as Toussaint; almost double the size of the previous expansion, Hearts of Stone.

No definitive release date has been given for the expansion, but for now it can be purchased as part of the game’s Season Pass for £19.99

CD Projekt Red is currently working on Cyberpunk 2077, a sci-fi action role playing game inspired by the tabletop series of the same name.

Despite its size and ambition, Cyberpunk 2077 is allegedly aiming for a 2016 release date.

This is according to a new report on Gamereactor, in which a source “close to company” states that the title is on course for a 2016 release.

The report also hints that the game is in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC, with the latter being the primary platform.

It is rumoured that Sony and Microsoft are “more than likely” trying to secure the game as a console exclusive.
