After the release of The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine, the final expansion for the massive open world RPG, don’t expect another Witcher game for quite some time. Speaking to Eurogamer, CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski stated that this was all the content for the series that would be out for now, and that they did not have any more projects for the series in the works.
I asked him whether the studio will leave The Witcher series for good – following the release of Witcher 3 Blood and Wine on 31st May – or return to it some day, and he said, “We honestly don’t know. We don’t have anything planned as of now to be honest on the next Witcher.
“As we said before, never say never [but] right now it’s really Blood and Wine. This is the end. Blood and Wine is [the] closing and there won’t be any Witcher any time soon – if there ever will be one. And I would really like to see how people feel about it, if they will enjoy it.”
This is great news. Considering that the developer announced Cyberpunk 2077 quite some time ago and we haven’t heard anything new since the initial announcement, perhaps this means CD Projekt RED will be focusing on that new IP instead. And hey, new games are almost always more interesting than just churning out sequel after sequel.
