For the last 10 years developer CD Projekt RED has made their name with The Witcher trilogy. With Geralt's saga now completed and the company now focused on card game Gwent and the Cyberpunk 2077 RPG, many fans wonder if CD Projekt will return to the series. Now CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński has all but confirmed that the developer will return to the world of The Witcher - but it will not be in the form of The Witcher 4.
Adam Kiciński spoke to Polish investment site Strefa Inwestorow and confirmed that The Witcher series would continue, but not as The Witcher 4 - so, not with main character Geralt. He sees Geralt's story as definitively finished, but CD Projekt will return to the world of The Witcher in other forms. Kiciński said:
"Fans and investors would not forgive us if we abandoned
This syncs with what we've heard about the next Witcher game before. In another Polish interview Kiciński said "It would be unfair to fans not to make one. We have been working in this universe for more than a decade now and I do not think it’s going to be the end of it. It is still early to talk about it, but we have not forgotten this series."
We're pretty sure that if and when the next Witcher happens, it could star Ciri, Geralt's adopted daughter and the second playable character in The Witcher 3. Nevertheless with how long Cyberpunk is taking and the supposed issues around staff morale another big RPG from CD Projekt will be a long, long way off.
