No New Witcher Game Will be Announced at WitcherCon

You can expect behind-the-scenes looks at the games and the Netflix series, additional news and reveals, and more, but don't expect a new game announcement.

CD Projekt RED have had a rough go of it with Cyberpunk 2077, but with the first person RPG shooter now out, it’s soon going to be time for the studio to begin focusing on the next instalment of The Witcher. The developer said last year that they’d begin developing the next The Witcher game after Cyberpunk 2077’s launch, and with CDPR and Netflix hosting WitcherCon on July 9, fans are wondering whether an announcement is going to be made soon.

Well, wonder no longer- and don’t expect an announcement either. WitcherCon’s official webpage explicitly states that while you will get new announcements in the larger franchise, new updates on season 2 of the Netflix series, behind-the-scenes looks at the development of the show and the games, “no new Witcher game will be announced” at the event.

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Cyberpunk 2077 still has a vast chunk of CD Projekt RED’s development force focused on it, who are working on fixes for the game, DLC, expansions, and the next-gen versions, that’s likely going to be the case for some time to come. CD Projekt RED suggested recently that they’d be beginning development on multiple major games in 2022, which might mean that The Witcher’s next game hasn’t quite gotten off the ground yet. Seeing as CD Projekt RED recently stated that they’d be marketing games much closer to launch in the future, it would seem, in turn, that The Witcher 4 or whatever CDPR ends up calling it – isn’t going to be officially unveiled any time soon.

That said, seeing as The Witcher 3 is also getting PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions soon, series fans will have at least something to look forward to in the near future.
