With the recent success of Netflix’s Witcher series, it’s no wonder that CD Projekt Red is already keen to hop back into the shoes of Geralt and his monetary quest to slay monsters and bed many women. I mean, I’m sure the creatives involved have a passion for that world and the characters within it, but like you know that the next Witcher game is going to make mountains of cash. Hell, the Netflix series even boosted the sales of The Witcher 3 five years after that game initially came out, you don’t think people will froth like rabid wolves over a new installation? CDPR clearly knows what the audience wants as a new interview has revealed that their next project after Cyberpunk is probably going to be Witcher related.

In an interview with Polish business website Stooq, president of CDPR Adam Kicinski stated the the studio was already hard at work on another singleplayer game which has a “relatively clear concept”. Don’t get too excited though, this project is still deep in the pipeline. After Cyberpunk 2077 has shipped, the bulk of CDPR will transition to the game’s multiplayer component while the second largest group of developers will maintain work on the base game’s expansions. The remaining employees will then be sent off to a corner to begin work on their next “large singleplayer game”.

Kicinski has previously stated that CD Projekt Red will continue playing around with the universes of Cyberpunk and The Witcher, so it would makes sense for the studio to return to the fantasy epic roots. Hopefully they don’t just call it The Witcher 4 because that just doesn’t roll off the tongue, does it?

    Are there more existing books in the series or is the author writing new books? Will it be a spin-off game, or maybe Geralt back in the driving seat? Questions, questions, questions! I say, 2027 for the next game!

      There are quite a few books, but the games don’t really follow them. Plus CDPR have already stated the Geralt’s story is done, so it’d probably be a spin-off game taking place somewhere in the Witcher universe.

        Who are we going to toss coins to now. “Toss a coin to Clifford” really does not roll off the tongue.

          Geralt isn’t the only witcher, witcher is a job description.

            Did you just assume Clifford is not a witcher?

            No, I assumed that we wouldn’t change the name of the song because no one says “Toss a coin to Geralt”.
