When CD Projekt Red claimed that Witcher 3 was the end of Geralt's journey, many hearts were broken. However, now it seems that the world-famous developer is looking into Witcher 4's possibility. Earlier today, CD Prokect announced on its official website that the company has signed an agreement with the original creator, Andrzej Sapkowski, and solidified their relationship. Previously, there had been some controversy going about Sapkowski regretting how he was not as included in Witcher 3's grand success.

Over multiple interviews over the years, Sapkowski remarked that he wasn't really a fan of the Witcher games. Those claims led Sapkowski to make legal demand for extra payment from CD Projeckt Red. In response to the legal demand, CD Projekt Red did pay an undisclosed amount to Sapkowski earlier this year. The recent announcement makes it clear that both CD Projekt Red and Sapkowski have left the previous disagreements behind and joined hands for future collaborations, or at least a green light has been given.

"The agreement satisfies and fully clarifies the needs and expectations of both parties, past, and present, and sets out a framework for the future cooperation between the two sides," CD Projekt Red stated in the announcement. "The agreement grants CD Projekt Red new rights, as well as confirms the company’s title to “The Witcher” intellectual property in video games, graphic novels, board games, and merchandise."

Although Witcher 3 served as a conclusion to the monster hunter's beautiful story, CD Projekt Red has said that the developers would love to return to the world of the Witcher with new stories. This could be possible in the form of expansions to the company's live games like the existing Witcher games and Gwent. Nevertheless, the positive relationship between CD Projekt Red and Andrzej Sapkowski sounds like that the two are going to lay down a proper road for Witcher 4.
