Although a new Witcher game was already been confirmed, now CD Projekt Red announced that began the development of it.

Very little info so far, but it will be a new saga and use Unreal Engine 5. Here's the link:

Any theories or thoughts?

W3 is the best open world rpg game i've played and i'm 100% all over this.

 

So long as they dont ass it up like Cyberpunk from a PA/launch pov, this potentially could be an absolutely awesome continuation of the story/series.

 

Can't wait to hear more on it! 😬😬😬😬

In the spirit of speculating over the image though - It looks like the pendant in the teaser is from the School of the Lynx. I'm hazy on the lore, but I believe that would basically be the Cat school as far as the games go right?

 

If you look at the image in this wikia source it seems like the symbols match. Wonder if this means we'll be playing as Ciri then?

I think that team is better at a slower paced open world RPG than they are at a sci-fi GTA.  I think they were in totally over their heads from the start with Cyberpunk, and at some point a suit forced the games launch.  I'm sure the next Witcher game will be great.

I do also wonder which decade it will be released in.

It was predictable that CD Proket's next project would be The Witcher. It's an attempt to regain credibility with a sequel to the franchise that established them as a major developer, before Cyberpunk. I hope it's even better than TW3.

UE5 looks amazing from what I can see so far, but are there any complete games right now that have UE5? It looks like everything is UE4 still?

With all respects to Witcher 3, combat system got to be improved. A little varity and game will shine.

You would assume that since Cyberpunk was what it was, they'll have learnt their lesson and this will be the most pristine looking and working game ever made, but we shall see.

 

You might assume that, but...you would likely be disappointed. 😄

Certainly, but they need to be careful. Too much focus on combat, and the world will lose its interest. I mean, if I have to fight tough battles every time I travel from one burg to another, it will get boring.

 

Have some decent police on the roads, though, and you could make it work.

I still have not finished Witcher 3 even once, so the game will probably come out by the time I do. Lol

Hard to get excited for it. I'm playing Cyberpunk right now, and...I'm really not in love with it. And never even finished Witcher 3 (though I might give it another shot when the PS5 version comes out). Coupled with the fact that this could be as much as 7 years away, which means next console generation...and for all we know, Xbox will buy CDPR by then so I won't get to play it anyways.

While I am happy that CD Projekt Red is finally working on a new Witcher game. I couldn't help but be cautious after Cyberpunk's disastrous launch. Remember, stay away from the hype and wait for the reviews.

I expect them to take their sweet time and put quality effort and be honest with fans. But ill take a Witcher anything over updates and more in cyberpunk. I get it is a working game now but its shit.

 

As for when this takes place, honestly would be cool to have Geralt die in the beginning probably protecting Ciri and then we play as her. OR we go an entirely different era without either of them in it, and focusing on a different witcher... hopefully a female

 

As for release window speculation.... early 2027- spring 2028 (Remember Witcher 3 got delayed a few times)

 

Excited but ill care more closer to release.

Wow. It is hard for you to get excited for a game that you don't even like playing.

I am shocked

Devs haven't really only been able to use it for about 6 months, so they haven't has it long enough to ship a game. Many devs also have cross generation projects in the works, and UE5 only targets gen 9.

Never said I didn't like playing Witcher 3, I said I didn't finish it (I took a break from it and never went back). Stop being so quick to jump down people's throats because they didn't jump for joy and puke rainbows at this announcement.

As a guy who likes to explore and fight, more than dialogues, I have lost interest in the world pretty quickly. Finding the same little different in design sword everywhere, and fight enemies with the same attacks, that have no real threat even having a skull above them is an underwhelming truth about Witcher 3 combat system. Gladly they at least mixed a crossbow into game, but only if you have DLC it will be decent change.

I love how everyone is bringing up Cyberpunk as if The Witcher 3 didn't launch as a bugged mess.

Did everyone honestly forget about that?
