CEO Marcin Iwinski of CD Projekt RED has confirmed, Witcher series deserves a rest before they start working on The Witcher 4. So this confirmed The Witcher 4 will take long time to release as CD Projekt currently has no plan to work on Witcher sequel.
CEO Marcin Iwinski told Game Informer that they haven’t even started talking about Witcher 4. He 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 per reports, the new game he is referring is Cyberpunk 2077 which is expected to out in 2017. Earlier we expected The Witcher 4 release somewhere around 2018 but now it looks it will have long delay. Stay tune as we bring more news and updates.
