After their financial meeting yesterday where CD Projekt announced the incredible sales of The Witcher series so far, a short Q&A was held. With the inevitability that only talk of sequels can produce, someone asked what was going to happen next. CD Projekt replied, essentially, nothing.
The best RPGs on PC won’t see a Witcher 4.
“The Witcher was designed as a trilogy and a trilogy can not have the fourth part, can it?” explains Adam Kiciński, President of CDP, through a translator. In other words, no Witcher 4.
However, he goes on to say that “we like this world a lot, we invested 15 years of our lives in it and a lot of money. So we’ll think about [it].” To me, that sounds more like potential, if far-off, expansion on the universe and its politics, factions, people and more. Think Mass Effect: Andromeda, rather than a total reboot like Prey or a continuation like Uncharted 4.
The question and short answer are towards the end of the full presentation, embedded above, at around the 41:50 mark.
