The Witcher 4 Not Happening Anytime Soon, “Series Deserves Some Rest”

CD Projekt RED CEO Marcin Iwinski does feel the universe is great for telling more stories though.

CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is arguably one of the best games to release in the past few years and is a strong contender for Game of the Year. As so usually happens with a game as beloved as this, many wonder when the sequel will happen. Besides the fact that CDPR will support Witcher 3 till 2017 before focusing on Cyberpunk 2077, CEO Marcin Iwinski simply said in an interview with Game Informer that they haven’t thought about The Witcher 4.

“Honestly speaking, we have not.

The series itself “deserves some rest,” according to Iwinski. “The past 10 years the team has been working on swords and castles and medieval Slavic monsters. So I think it’s time for some guns, androids, and some ammo. And a necropolis. So this is what we’ll be working on.”

There’s plenty of opportunity to tell more stories in The Witcher’s universe but there still don’t seem to be plans for a sequel any time soon. “We definitely are not annualizing a franchise or anything – it’s about the experience. The world of The Witcher is gigantic and it’s great to tell these stories, but I don’t know when this will happen.”

    I haven’t played or really seen much of Witcher 3, but it’d be awesome if Ciri had her own game in the series as the main protagonist. If events in Wild Hunt make that impossible, just tell me now so I don’t get my hopes up. As for date..2020.

    • Psionicinversion

      If there is a witcher 4 you won’t see that til about 2023/24 because cyberpunk 2077 looks like it will be released about 2020 now. There’s only 3 games in the witcher series not sure if its from the books but they’ll have improvise the 4th

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Hmm..that’d be too far away, maybe 2018 earliest for Cyberpunk. Games take place after books if I’m not mistaken.

    • Psionicinversion

      maybe it depends how far along they are and how much resources they allocate to building the 2 witcher expansions

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      There are like 50 to 100 people on Witcher 3 while Cyberpunk 2077 has the remaining staff to even playing field. We won’t hear more for a couple years so once they finish expansions and everyone is on it by then we’ll hear more soon after.

    The Witcher 4 won’t happen yet, but they hinted at the possibly of The Witcher 1/2 being remastered for PS4/XBone after the release of The Witcher 3.
