The Witcher continues to be a pillar in the production of CD Projekt RED, as emerged during today’s financial conference where the team announced a new trilogy in development at the team, starting with the new chapter that has already been announced and to which two others have already been planned, as well as others two games from other teams.
In the financial conference staged in these minutes, which it was suspected could contain the release date of The Witcher 3: The Complete Edition but was later denied by the team, some very interesting information emerged on the future of CD Projekt RED and the series in question.
In addition to the reference to a new game in the Cyberpunk 2077 series, well have been revealed three projects related to The Witcher. The new trilogy of The Witcher will start with the new chapter announced some time ago and in development on Unreal Engine 5: the game in question has not been identified as The Witcher 4 and now there is confirmation that it is in all respects a sort of a new beginning, since it is already a planned trilogy.
There “new saga” of The Witcher, as had already been announced by CD Projekt RED, will therefore be composed of three other chapters, so the project is still long-term and there will be a way to go back to it, beyond the new title already presented even if not yet shown in detail. According to reports, the various chapters will come out in an expected cycle of 6 years.
Not only that, there are also two other games in development related to The Witcher, but these have been assigned to other teams: Sirius is the code name of a new game in progress at The Molasses Flood, the team of The Flame in the Flood, while Canis Majoris is the other project under development at a third party team not better identified at the moment.
In both cases it should be a spin-off of the “regular” series, more details of which are expected in the coming months, but development still seems to take quite some time in both cases. Sirius is reportedly expected to expand the brand to a wider audience and will contain elements multiplayer and single player, will probably be characterized above all by the first mode, being the feature highlighted by CD Projekt RED right now.
As for Canis Majoris, it could be a very large title in terms of production, considering that it is in development on Unreal Engine 5just like the new main trilogy, and we are waiting to know the name of the development team in charge.
