The Witcher 4: 5 Reasons It's Coming Sooner Than You Think

5. The Extended Universe

CD Projekt RED

As good as a sequel to Geralt’s or Ciri’s story would be, the surrounding world and lore within Andrzej Sapkowski’s universe should be explored by CDPR in a different way.

For those who do not know, the Witcher game series is not a direct representation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels. They in fact continue the story that finished in the books, meaning that CDPR has some experience of creating a semi-original storyline.

With CDPR’s legendary quest design and character development, an original game within the wider Witcher universe could be exceptional. The potential focus on the history of Elves within the Witcher Universe could be a powerful and interesting storyline. The beauty of Elven cities within the Witcher is eluded too, and creating the 4th Witcher game around these cities would create a truly stunning world.


CDPR should approach The Witcher 4 with a refreshing outlook, focusing on an entirely new storyline and time period of the Witcher Universe. The potential for a stunning world with an impactful storyline could ensure the Witcher 4 only builds on its predecessor, whilst not harming the legacy of The Witcher 3.
