With the story of Witcher 3 concluded, and very little info about CD Projekt Red’s next big title, Cyberpunk 2077, fans have been left in a limbo they’ve been filling with speculation and wishful thinking.
Indeed, CDPR are industriously keeping rumours of a new Witcher alive with vague vows not to abandon the franchise.
Since Wild Hunt was such a smashing success, the game's popularity reflected in its earnings, it’s understandable that the devs want to keep a hold of the golden goose a while longer. And while some are fearful that their beloved trilogy could devolve into a soulless series, others are simply eager to see more of it.
After all, the universe of the Witcher, firmly based in an acclaimed book saga from the 1990s, is far from fully explored.
Now, ‘not abandoning the franchise’ could mean many things. We already have Gwent and the Witcher Adventure Game – but it seems there’s more to come. It is not even known yet whether the next Witcher game will even be an epic-scale RPG like its predecessors, but starved fans have been lining up with wishlists for what they want The Witcher 4 to be like.
