CD Projekt RED comments on Witcher sequel and Cyberpunk 2077

I make it no secret that I hold CD Projekt RED in the highest regard. The Polish developer is the golden standard for how games should be made; with passion, with respect and a love for the consumer. Everything about them is exemplary and they are the living antithesis of the greedy and humiliating corporations that plague the gaming industry. They also created The Witcher 3, which I consider the best game of all time. However, the trilogy was concluded rather conclusively with the Blood and Wine expansion and we all assumed that the Witcher universe was now over. But don’t count your chickens before they hatch and definitely don’t cast Aard on them.

In an interview with Polish website Strefa Inwestorow, Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt RED, revealed some details surrounding the future of the company. Thankfully a good Samaritan over at ResetEra provided a brief translation of what was said. Firstly, the Witcher trilogy is officially concluded. In other words, there won’t be a sequel to The Witcher 3. However, Kiciński said that they still own the IP and that they will consider doing another game within the same universe, most likely a spin-off where you won’t play as Geralt. He mentioned how both fans and investors won’t be happy if they just abandoned the franchise.

A spin-off like that will still take a while because CD Projekt RED is vigorously busy with Cyberpunk 2077 for the near and potentially far future. Kiciński assured us that the game will be bigger and more ambitious than The Witcher 3 and if I remember that game correctly, that’s going to be one hell of a task. Kiciński said that the team is anxious to finally show it to the world and they’re very happy with where it is in its current state. No release date or planned reveal just yet.

It looks like CD Projekt RED is healthy and hungry at the moment. They’ve been quiet, but that is because of how dedicated and laser-focused they are on their titles and a new IP is no joke. Hopefully, Cyberpunk 2077 gets a release date soon because I and many others have been dying to play it.

I am way too tall, played way too many games and I love to write about what we love about games. In the end, I’m just being #Thabolicious

    Dying to play it? DYING TO PLAY IT, MARKO? I have been reduced to salt and ash waiting for this game. My body needs to be rehydrated with energies of this game. I need and want Cyberpunk 2077 SO BAD. I still rewatch that teaser trailer to tame the anticipation. I am still surprised by how dedicated I am to a game I know little of and a studio whose games I’ve never played. The only other time I’ve ever supported a game with this much conviction and enthusiasm is when I saw the first E3 trailer for The Last of Us.

    I am seriously feeling like a stalker for a game instead of a guy. I need to feel its gamplay on the tips of my fingers. I’ve waited so long and so hopelessly. yet all they can do is freaking tease!
    Also, with all the talk of development hell and key developers leaving in the middle of it I’m getting scared we might get another mass Effect Andromeda in the end.
