Witcher 4 Is Not “Witcher 3 In New Clothing,” Dev Says

The Witcher 4: Breaking New Ground

The highly-anticipated Witcher 4 is set to kick off a new trilogy for CD Projekt Red, and fans are eagerly awaiting more details about this upcoming game. While much is still unknown, CD Projekt has provided some insights during their latest earnings briefing.

A New Vision

During the briefing, joint-CEO Michał Nowakowski emphasized that The Witcher 4 will not simply be a rehash of its predecessor. He made it clear that the game is intended to break new ground and offer a fresh experience for players.

Pushing Boundaries

Nowakowski highlighted the importance of embracing innovative elements in The Witcher 4, introducing new gameplay mechanics that have not been seen in previous titles. This creative risk-taking is essential for the team as they strive to deliver a unique and engaging experience.

Release Date and Development

While Nowakowski refrained from providing a specific release date for The Witcher 4, he did mention that the game is currently the most developed project at CD Projekt. With over 400 individuals working on the title under the codename Polaris, full production is expected to commence in the second half of 2024.

Despite the focus on The Witcher 4, CD Projekt also has several other projects in the pipeline, including a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, a remake of the original Witcher, a new IP codenamed Hadar, and another Witcher title from The Molasses Flood.
