The Witcher 4 saga

Earlier this year, Polish developer CD Projekt RED confirmed that it was moving towards a "New Witcher Saga" in partnership with Epic Games and Unreal Engine 5. At the time, the team didn't really clarify what it meant by labelling the move a 'saga', aside from the fact that it wasn't naming its next Witcher title just yet.

Well, in a new financial presentation looking back at the company's first half of 2022, the developer has added a little more context. Here's what CDPR's Adam KiciƄski had to say on where the series is heading (thanks, VGC).

"We have in mind more than one [...] The first saga was three games, so now we are thinking about more than one game, but we are in pre-production of the first game from the second Witcher saga."

It appears, then, that more than one Witcher title is in CDPR's plans, although given how sprawling The Witcher 3 is, we don't expect to see anything beyond 'The Witcher 4' for quite some time. And that's if the team isn't throwing another Cyberpunk title into the mix either.

In the meantime, The Witcher 3's free next-gen upgrade is still on course to launch this year, with the current release window set at Q4 2022.
