CD Projekt to commence development of a new Witcher game following launch of Cyberpunk 2077
CD Projekt will start development of the next game in The Witcher series once Cyberpunk 2077 ships this Fall. The news comes from Polish finance website stoop.pl, reported on by Eurogamer Poland, and translated by PlayStation Universe.
In a conversation with journalists, CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński confirmed plans for the Witcher follow-up, though he notes it will not be called The Witcher 4. A smaller team will commence development as larger teams continue to work on Cyberpunk 2077 post-launch content and multiplayer. Kiciński also stated that at this time, the two worlds the studio will work in will either be 'Cyberpunk' or 'Witcher.'
The next Witcher title is assuredly many years away, but at least fans can know that there will eventually be another video game to look forward to.
As a final note, Eurogamer Poland also states that a settlement has been made with original Witcher novel author Andrzej Sapkowski, and the relationship between him and the studio has been cemented.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on September 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
