Will a new game be released? The Witcher 4.
Will there be a Witcher 4? We round up what the developer and the games suggest is in Geralt’s future.
The Witcher 3 RPG sold 25 million copies and earned a record number of Game of the Year awards. For many, it became not just “Gothi 2015”, but the best game of the generation, mainly due to an exciting and well-developed story unfolding in a harsh and believable world.
Discussing the likelihood of The Witcher 4 appearing is pointless; the game is likely to take place. Nevertheless, a lot of time will pass before we can again plunge into the medieval world invented by the writer Andrzej Sapkowski.

That’s on top of official CD Projekt Red forum moderator Donata Popławska recently confirmed that “as far as the strategy of the CD Projekt Capital Group for 2016-2021 is concerned, its plans to release the second AAA game by 2021 remain unchanged. We are currently focusing on the production and promotion of Cyberpunk 2077, so we do not want to comment on further projects.” (You can view the translation here.)
