CD Projekt RED continues to play the card of transparency. The Polish publisher recently unveiled its many projects under development. In addition to the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077the teams are working on several adaptations of The Witcher, including The Witcher 4. Today, the president of the studio clarifies us on the release date of the first episode of the future trilogy.
The Witcher 4 will be released in at least 2025
The Witcher 4 continues to be talked about. The aptly named Polaris internally will mark the start of a new trilogy. The developers confirmed this week that the episodes of this saga will be released six years apart from the release of the first opus. A question then burned everyone’s lips, when The Witcher 4 could just be launched? Adam Kiciński provides part of the answer.
Asked about the subject by IGN, the president of the studio confirmed that it will be necessary to wait at least 3 years before being able to play there. ” For Polaris (note: The Witcher 4), we prepare the technology. This is the first project to be released with the new engine, Unreal Engine 5, so there is an additional workload to create this technology. We are clearly going to have to make extra effortses,” he explained.
According to him, the development of the second and third new games of the trilogy will be easier thanks to this new technology. CD Proket RED is in any case optimistic for a release of The Witcher 4 by 2025. The title could take a bit longer though depending on how teams manage to get to grips with theUnreal Engine 5. In any case, things seem to be progressing, since the game is already in the pre-production phase.
