Polish studio CD Projekt RED intends to work with The Witcher brand for many years. Now in production, the fourth part of The Witcher on Unreal Engine 5 will be just the beginning of the “second saga”, which will include at least two games, and later, perhaps, will turn into an independent trilogy. Relevant information was shared by the head of CD Projekt Adam Kichinski.
According to the president, the new “Witcher” should be taken only as the first chapter in the new history of the franchise – the developers are already hatching plans for subsequent releases.
“We are aiming for more than just one new game. As part of the first saga, we created three independent projects, so today we are also preparing for the consecutive release of several developments. The first game from the second The Witcher saga is already in pre-production,” noted Adam Kichinskiy.
Additionally, Adam Kiczynski confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt remastered for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S is still scheduled for release this year. All existing owners of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console copies will be able to download the new edition for free.
In addition to The Witcher, CD Projekt RED management also expressed their commitment to the Cybepunk 2077 brand. It seems that in the coming years, the Polish company’s vector of movement will be directed towards the development of these two franchises.
