After rumours abound that CD Projekt RED were to announce that the Witcher 1 was to come to consoles, it turns out the Polish developer and publisher are to unveil a brand-new RPG tomorrow during a press conference.
CDPR told Eurogamer that they will unveil their “second triple-A RPG in development” to be live-streamed on Facebook at 5PM GMT tomorrow.
Earlier this month we reported that CD Projekt RED were hiring for two new projects, one ‘a RPG in a dark fantasy world’ and a second in a ‘brand new setting’. The latter had an icon of a small gun next to the job listing, suggesting CDPR’s announcement will be concerning their first RPG-shooter and an entirely new IP.
Head of Marketing Michal Platkow-Gilewksi told Eurogamer:
“We are gearing up for our upcoming conference and we have encountered some speculations concerning what we will be announcing.
“We would like to share some light about what will happen tomorrow. In regard to the Witcher, we are planning some surprises for the second half of the year and for the next year, but during the conference we will sum-up The Witcher and Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition also, we will give a bunch of new information. To make it really clear – we will not be announcing Witcher 1 for consoles.
“The major announcement on the conference tomorrow is related to the gun icon on cdpred.com career page. We will give you the first bit of information about our second AAA RPG in development. We have some really exciting news to share, so make sure join us at 5PM GMT on our live-stream: facebook.com/thewitcher.”
