• CD Projekt Red will be working on a new "Witcher" title
  • The studio will start working on it immediately after releasing "Cyberpunk 2077"
  • The new title won't be a direct sequel to "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt"

The developers behind “The Witcher 3” are going to work on a new “Witcher” game immediately after releasing “Cyberpunk 2077,” a report reveals.

Fans of “The Witcher” series of games will be glad to know that CD Projekt Red, the studio behind the acclaimed franchise, will be working on a new title immediately after its upcoming open world RPG, “Cyberpunk 2077,” is released this year.

Eurogamer Poland (via PSU) reported that the game Polish game studio is set to work on the new single-player title once “Cyberpunk 2077,” which has been delayed to September this year, is released. The new game won't be a direct sequel to the acclaimed “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.”

CDPR President Adam Kiciński told journalists that the studio already has a “relatively clear concept that is waiting for further development.” Simply put, the developers already have something in mind, and they are just waiting for “Cyberpunk 2077” to be released before working on it.

He didn't provide more details about the upcoming title. What's known about it is that it will be “embedded” in the world of “The Witcher.” Also, considering “Cyberpunk 2077's” release date, it's safe to assume that the game won't be released until at least 2021 for the next-generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Future games

Kiciński told journalists that CD Projekt Red wants to focus on creating games well within the two worlds that it currently has – the world of “The Witcher” series and the world of “Cyberpunk.”

Based on this, it's easy to understand that fans can still expect to see familiar “Witcher” environments in the new game, but rendered in greater detail as compared to older titles. One of the game studio's “smaller teams” will be working on the new project, Eurogamer Poland noted.

Kiciński's words also indicated that future titles might still feature settings based on the world of “Cyberpunk.” Nothing is known about the company's plans for future titles. What's known right is that while one team works on the new “Witcher game,” two larger teams will continue working on “Cyberpunk 2077,” particularly in game development as well as post-launch content.
