Nothing has been revealed officially yet by developers of the game about The Witcher 4 as Witcher 3 game just released, but fans has already started asking about Witcher 4 and even started a petition. Hard for fans to wait! Isn’t? Especially when game’s previous sequel The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has done a record break business with the sales of around four million copies in the first two weeks. This info was shared publicly by Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of CD Projekt Red – Developer of the game. He uploaded an open letter on the game’s official website and mentioned his greetings to all those four million buyers who helped him and his team in making the dream comes true with this grand sale.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt reached at the sales of one million copies within six days whereas The Witcher 2: The Assassins of kings took about three months to hit sales of 940,000 copies. These statistics shows the development and demand of the game. We can guess the excitement of fans all over the world for The Witcher 4 following the huge success of the series.
Many fans of the Witcher series are confused and not getting the right answer of the question “Will There Be Witcher 4 in the Series?” Why not to get confuse when Witcher 3: Wild Hunt wrapped up the saga of Geralt of Rivia. But still many fans believe Witcher 3 won’t be the end of the series. Here we will try to give you the answer to this question.
Studio head Adam Badowski said in a press release stating that “If people would ask this is the last game of the Witcher series then yes, it is. Because we believe the series should end at the high notes.”
Soon after, Eurogamer reported the actual meaning of the Adam Badowski’s statement. The website reported that the Badowski meant was that The Wild Hunt series will be the last game in the Witcher triology but the game will continue in its new series to entertain their loyal customers/fans who have become part of their family. CEO Adam Kicinski has stated that the “franchise will be continued.”
For more clarification Engadget when contacted to CD Projekt Red, a Spokesman replied “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will wrap up the saga of Geralt of Rivia, but we do leave open the possibility of returning to the Witcher world.”
There was also report, The Witcher 4 is already planned based on the leaked document which revealed the script planning of The Witcher 4 and what all similarities will be carried to the upcoming sequel.
So all the above reports hints The Witcher series will continue even after The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but it is probably going to be a fresh series. Will it be called The Witcher 4 or gets a fresh name? We have to wait to know.

Marcin Iwinski,the co-founder of CD Projekt RED has confirmed Witcher 4 is not happening any time soon. “We honestly don’t know. We don’t have anything planned as of now to be honest on the next Witcher,” reamarked Iwinski while talking to Eurogamer. He further added ,”As we said before, never say never but right now it’s really Blood and Wine. This is the end. Blood and Wine is the closing and there won’t be any Witcher any time soon – if there ever will be one. And I would really like to see how people feel about it, if they will enjoy it.”
Here we predict The Witcher 4 release date will be somewhere between 2018-2020. But how? We predict this based on the history of the Witcher series and with below chart you might be able to predict as well.
|Name||Developer||Year Of Release|
|The Witcher||CD Projekt RED||October 2007|
|The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings||CD Projekt RED||May 2011|
|The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt||CD Projekt RED||May 2015|
|The Witcher 4?||CD Projekt RED||2018-2020?|
The first game was released in October 2007 which was based on the book series of the same name by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. Following on a sequel, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which was released on May 17, 2011 for the PC. The third game of the series, titled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, was released in May 2015 which sells over 4 million copies in just 2 weeks.
After analysing the release chart of The Witcher series game one can easily predict, The Witcher 4 is likely to release somewhere between 2018-2020. But this are just prediction as nothing official has been announced.
Update On Witcher 4 Release Date:
CEO Marcin Iwinski told Game Informer that Witcher series deserves some rest and they haven’t even started talking about Witcher 4. So this clearly hints, CD Projekt RED has no plans to launch a Witcher sequel quickly and it will take long time to release.
CEO Marcin Iwinski said:
“Honestly speaking, we have not,” Iwinski said. “It [The Witcher series] deserves some rest. The past 10 years the team has been working on swords and castles and medieval Slavic monsters. So I think it’s time for some guns, androids, and some ammo. And a necropolis. So this is what we’ll be working on. We definitely are not annualizing a franchise or anything–it’s about the experience. The world of The Witcher is gigantic and it’s great to tell these stories, but I don’t know when this will happen.”
As we all know The Geralt of Rivia character in the Witcher game has come to an end. And since the news above has hinted there would be another Witcher game, fans are curious to know what new it will offer to them. Whether it will be better than Geralt of Rivia series? Expectations are too high, and here are some features wishlist of The Witcher 4:
New Witcher School:
Though there would be no Geralt, but the theme of the game i.e. witch hunting should remain the same. Developers may include more fascinating storyline with the inclusion of more Witcher schools. As in the previous game we all have seen cat school for the Witcher, but we have never seen anything of the Bear, Griffin and Snake.
Introduce More New Worlds:
It would be bit hard to continue in the same universe and world of Geralt and Circi without them. Introducing more new worlds to bring new attention into the game, making the location more interesting, vast and dangerous will be a good move. Though The Geralt’s world is one of the best worlds ever created, but it all centered around Geralt, but if some changes done precisely, this will help in making interesting story.
The Witcher developers have always improved all the traits of upcoming game. Many fans believe The Witcher 4 will be better than The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt because they trust the developers. Developers will work on every aspect, but they should do some extra ordinary thing with graphics. Hopefully the upcoming game will be more realistic.
New Storyline From Ciri Side:
Many fans would love to see the game from a new different angle. Definitely, the Geralt storyline is awesome but as Geralt will be terminated from the game, there should be new storyline from different angle. Storyline from Ciri side would be good as it will give a deep story in terms of politic given her blood line.
Text Option For PC:
Fans really demand large font option defining miraculous action scenes for PC users. In the previous sequel The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt there were no large font option for PC users, though it was available for 360 users. But this time fans require the same in PC version too. This will give them a lot of relief while playing on TV with tiny fonts.
Developers can focus to bring ultra slow motion pause into The Witcher 4. The pause may not completely freeze the player instead put him into ultra slow activity. Camera control also be given to the player so that he could assign different active signs to the new introduced protagonist.
As The Witcher 4 will also be an adventurous game of slaying monsters. The new protagonist may be given an option to practice battle skills while travelling from one place to another. The more he practices, the more he becomes fierce. Here you can find more Witcher 4 features wishlist.
