The next entry in the long-running game series will use a different engine from the one previously used in the controversial Cyberpunk 2077.
We're hoping we'll hear more about The Witcher 4 in the coming months, but we don't expect the next game in the series to land anytime soon. 15 years have passed since CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was first released, making it the last mainline entry in the series.
CD Projekt Red said in a post that the next game in the series is currently in development.
It would make sense for Ciri to head up the next game in the series since The Witcher 3 seemed to mark the end of Geralt's adventures.
It's no surprise that CD Projekt Red is working on a new entry in the series, given the success of The Witcher TV series.
The developer of The Witcher game series confirmed a new game is on the way in a recent post. The image released alongside the announcement shows a cat in the snow, not Geralt's signature wolf medallion.
We think we can see Ciri taking up the mantle of the main character in the new series entry. A major change is coming for the game series according to the post titled 'A New Saga'.
The book series of the same name is the basis for the game series. We don't know much about the new game, but we are happy to hear that it will be built on Unreal Engine 5.
There are no firm details on the new game, but we know that it won't be exclusive to one store. The developer won't want a repeat of the issues that have plagued Cyberpunk 2077. The primary goal is to help tailor the engine for open-world experiences.
There are no further details regarding the game at this point. We are moving from REDengine to Unreal Engine 5 and beginning a multi-year partnership with Epic Games. It covers both licensing and technical development of Unreal Engine 5, as well as potential future versions of Unreal Engine.
The Witcher 4 is being developed by CD Projekt Red.
