The Witcher is getting a new series of games, and according to long-time developers CD Projekt, this might take the shape of a series of titles over the next few years, all leading up to an entirely entirely new trilogy similar to their historical releases.
The Witcher 3, a well-known RPG game, has a cult following since its release, with extensive DLCs bursting out of the woodwork and extending the game's already massive amount of content.
Since Netflix jumped on board with a Henry Cavill-led series, there has been no shortage of excitement for the world created by Andrzej Sapkowski in his novels.
The game developers want to get ahold of that Witcher excitement.
Adam Kicinski, who has been in charge of the company since 2006, stated during an earnings meeting the group aspired to follow the lead of the previous series, adding that we predicted that there would be a new saga. We have in mind more.
The Witcher game's creators had already announced in May that the third installment of the franchise would be extended to the next generation of consoles. That transition was confirmed to be on track, with a release date for next-gen gamers expected in the last quarter of 2022.
The sequel will be released once the updated Witcher 3 version is released.
According to several developers, the newest Witcher title might depart from the original characters, Geralt and Siri, forming a new plotline that could follow an entirely different group of Witchers. In 2017, CD Projekts Marcin Iwinski said on a similar note: A trilogy cannot have a fourth part, right?
Fans will have to wait to hear more about the new Witcher saga, or rather, a trilogy of games, that will take them back to Novigrad, Oxenfurt, and beyond.
