Developed by industry darlings, CD Projekt Red, The Witcher 3 is one of the greatest video games of all time.
Whilst their attention is currently focused on Cyberpunk 2077, CDPR’s main IP is the Witcher franchise. The first game was a small but ambitious title that was flawed by its technical limitations, not its creative ones.
From its limited PC release in 2007, CDPR managed to turn The Witcher 3 into one of the most recognisable video games in the world, winning the 2015 Game of the Year Award.
Many fans believed the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to be the last of the series, and whilst Geralt’s story came to a natural conclusion, it is by no means the end of the Witcher series. CDPR are an ambitious studio, and the creative potential of the Witcher 4 is far too appealing to be ignored.
The Witcher is also never hotter than right now. The
upcoming Netflix TV series has the potential to fire the Witcher franchise into
mainstream media even more.
It has Netflix’s full attention and with over 150m subscribers, CDPR are well aware of the Witcher 4, meaning that as it only grows in popularity and significance
the pieces will fall into place, sooner than you think.
