Although Cyberpunk 2077 is still some months away from release, CD Projekt is already planning a new single-player game set in the Witcher universe according to comments from President of the CD Projekt group Adam Kiciński.
In a recent meeting with journalists, it’s come to light that once CD Projekt has completed work on Cyberpunk 2077, they will immediately press on with a new Witcher title.
Despite this being a new Witcher game, according to Kiciński, it will not be called The Witcher 4. The new game will be developed with a smaller team at CD Projekt. The other teams will continue working on Cyberpunk 2077 including more content and network code for multiplayer.
Kiciński says that the development of titles at the studio will take 4 – 5 years and they won’t be pushing out a new RPG in a couple of years because “quality takes time”.
While there are no further details on this new Witcher game as yet, it’s great to see they are returning to the Witcher universe and that they will be fully behind Cyberpunk 2077 updates for some time to come.
