CD Projekt Red announces new Witcher game is being developed
CD Projekt Red has announced that they’re working on a new game in the Witcher series, entering a new era for the franchise.
There’s a lot to get excited about surrounding the new Witcher game, as CD Project Red has already teased and denied a few things about the game. One of those things is that they’ll be switching over to a brand new engine, being Unreal Engine 5 and that this time the game won’t be an exclusive, meaning it’ll be available on multiple platforms. “We are not planning on making the game exclusive to one storefront.”
What we have NOT announced today:
– A game called The Witcher 4.
– A game exclusive to one storefront.
It was our initial confirmation of a new saga in The Witcher franchise. Right now, we are not discussing any specifics in terms or story, characters, mechanics, or plot details.
