The Witcher: CD Projekt Red already thinks about ‘multiple games’ in the saga
CD Projekt Red, the Polish developer responsible for The Witcher games, has revealed its interest in producing “multiple games” in what he says is a new saga of the franchise. The information came from Adam Kicinski, president and CEO of the company, in presentation of his latest financial report this Wednesday, September 7th.
At the time, Adam explained that, as the first saga is composed of three games, the studio is already in the pre-production from the first game of the second saga of The Witcher.
It is worth remembering that the new The Witcher had its confirmation in March of this year with a brief teaser that suggests that players will not take control of Geralt of Rivia, as it highlights a different witch medallion from the protagonist.
All that is known so far is that the new game, which is not called The Witcher 4, is being made in Unreal Engine 5 in collaboration with Epic Games in an attempt to demonstrate the power of the new graphics engine. This does not mean, however, that the game will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store.according to the developer.
Because it’s still in pre-production, it’s unlikely that more news will be released anytime soon. Additionally, CD Projekt Red is working on the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt update for next-gen hardware, which is expected to arrive this fall on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Among the new features of this version, which will be released as a free upgrade for those who already have the game, is support for the Ray Tracing effect, with more realistic reflections and light effects, and faster loading screens. There will also be a complete edition with both expansion packs, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, included, as well as minor DLC, patch patches and never-before-seen content inspired by the Netflix series.
