CD Projekt Red’s Next Game Revealed? CEO Shares Details!
Okay, you have our attention now, CD Projekt Red!
Cyberpunk 2077 is releasing this September. However as the grind never stops, CD Projekt Red has already started planning out its next project! If rumors are true, a new Witcher game is in the works. Considering the success of the new Witcher Series, we say it’s a fair move. But how much truth is there to the rumors?
The Next Witcher Game is Reportedly in the Works!
Adam Kiciński, CD Projekt Red’s CEO, recently revealed that the team has started preparation for its next game. Kiciński didn’t share many details about the future project. However, fans were quick to assume that it would be a Witcher game, since expanding the Cyberpunk and Witcher Universes has been the Developer’s topmost priority for quite some time now.
To ensure that the untitled project doesn’t take away significant attention from the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red’s CEO clarified:
We’ll start working on this next game right after Cyberpunk 2077.
Is Witcher 4 the next CD Projekt Red game?
The Witcher series introduced a lot of casuals to the Witcher games. So, a follow-up to the wildly successful Witcher 3 shouldn’t be out of the question, right? NO!
As we mentioned earlier, Kiciński didn’t reveal the project. However, he has clearly stated that it won’t be Witcher 4. As per a recent Eurogamer report, Kiciński had this to say while shooting down rumors suggesting Witcher 4 being in the works:
I clearly said that Witcher was a trilogy. Simultaneously, we’ve always emphasized that we want to create Witcher games and the agreement with [The Witcher creator Andrzej] Sapkowski confirmed our rights.
So, while it has been confirmed that CD Projekt Red has no plans on creating Witcher 4, we can still expect a spin-off game based in the same universe. Until then, let’s wait for the epic that will be releasing later this year (Cyberpunk 2077).
