Fans of The Witcher series will be happy to know that the upcoming Witcher game isn’t going to be a one-off. The Polish video game company hopes to develop more than one game in the new saga.

Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt, revealed some interesting information during a financial earnings call yesterday. He informed investors that the new Witcher game will be a part of the second saga containing more than one game. “The first saga was three games, so now we are thinking about more than one game,” Kiciński said.

Future Witcher Games

Unless plans change in the future, I think it’s safe to say that the Witcher IP isn’t going away anytime soon. We don’t know if the new saga will contain two or three games. I am personally hoping for three amazing titles. I mean, who doesn’t like a good trilogy, right?

Kiciński restated that the upcoming game is currently in pre-production, meaning that you won’t be playing it anytime soon. So, any future sequels will be even farther away.

New Video Game Engine

The new title is also being developed using Unreal Engine 5 instead of REDEngine, CD Project’s in-house engine. This could be both good news and bad news.

  • The good news is that many issues in Cyberpunk 2077 happened due to engine troubles. The game was being developed alongside the engine.
  • The bad news is that the developer isn’t experienced with UE5 and that it would have to create every asset from scratch.

I guess time will tell if the game will turn out well.

Even after the Cyberpunk-launch fiasco, I am still hyped about the new game, cautiously, that is. We will love to see CD Projekt take back the crown of the best RPG developer.

Next-Gen Upgrade of Witcher 3

All the upcoming Witcher content isn’t years away. Some are arriving soon, like the planned next-gen upgrade of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, currently in development and will launch later this year.

We know it will feature many improvements, like ray tracing and better loading times. Some content related to the Witcher Netflix show will also be released. Thankfully, the upgrade will be completely free for existing owners of the game (take notes Rockstar and Sony). More will be revealed later.
