The quotes reported are attributed to Adam Kicinski, president of the CD Projekt, who is said to have debated the idea during a press conference.
“We have already been working on another single-player game, we have created a relatively clear concept that is waiting for further development,” Kicinski said. “And this is already beginning to happen, although we do not want to spend time at the moment.”
According to Kicinski, shortly after the development completion on Cyberpunk 2077, the work on the next game will start. The Witcher 4 game will be set in the classical universe of the franchise and will be named The Witcher 4, as it will give birth to a new mainline series.
The Witcher Builds Continues
The work on the next title will be carried out by ‘the smallest team of the Polish company,’ as ‘two larger teams will be responsible for the network mode and additions to Cyberpunk 2077.’ The multiplayer mode for the forthcoming first-person RPG title is believed to be a triple-A game on its own, and it is definitely not launching before 2022.
The Polish gaming studio is already clear on what it wants to craft, stating that ‘we have two worlds, and within these worlds, we want to create games; therefore, all planned games are either The Witcher or Cyberpunk.’
Leaks have already appeared, saying that The Witcher as a franchise is not over as of yet. It seems rather safe to assume that CD Projekt RED decided to create more builds for the series following its strong debut. Netflix‘s adaptation of the original books written by Andrzej Sapkowski was incredibly well-received and has already been set for a second season, as well as more planned to come.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set for launch on September 17th, 2020.
