The Witcher

The game begins when Geralt of Rivia, one of a few remaining "witchers" – traveling monster hunters for hire, gifted with unnatural powers, is transported to the witcher stronghold of Kaer Morhen by fellow witchers who had discovered him unconscious in a field. Geralt remembers almost nothing of his life before that point. He is taken to Kaer Morhen, the base of the witchers, where he meets a sorceress named Triss Merigold. The castle is attacked by a gang of bandits named Salamandra, led by a criminal known as the Professor, a mage named Savolla who controls a large, praying mantis-like monster, and another mage named Azar Javed. The witchers and the sorceress manage to slay the monster and kill Savolla, but the Professor and Azar manage to escape with the mutagens that genetically alter the witchers. After curing Triss of the wounds she received while fighting Javed, Geralt and the rest of the witchers head off in different directions in order to find information on Salamandra.

This time, development of The Witcher 4 has begun in earnest

We'll have to get used to it now, CD Projekt Red gives news on the progress of its projects. And good news the development of The Witcher 4 has begun.

Serious things will start. CD Projekt Red has announced that it has completed the research phase around the one currently called The Witcher 4 . The next game around the Witcher universe has therefore now entered the pre-production phase, where the bulk of the work will be carried out: modeling of the open world, characters, design of all the narration, gameplay mechanics, etc. In short, the big job begins.

Things are moving forward for The Witcher 4

The concrete development of the game therefore began in the first quarter of 2022. For the moment, The Witcher 4 is overseen by a team of 100 developers, who already announce that they are feeling the progress brought by the Unreal Engine 5 in terms of efficiency and of productivity.

Remember that the Polish studio has put its own engine in the closet and has been seduced by the capabilities of that of Epic Games, which would be able to do wonders in terms of open world design . For its part, CD Projekt Red is also developing its own tools for narration, no doubt to push its mechanics of dialogues, choices and consequences even further. 

All that's left to do is wait

Very good news then, but that does not mean that we will see The Witcher 4 anytime soon. It will still be years before the game takes shape and the developers are ready to show it off. A small CGI teaser to whet the appetites of fans is not excluded, but priority is currently given to the Cyberpunk 2077 narrative DLC .

For its part, the next-gen patch of The Witcher 3 has finally been pushed back to the end of the year. It will at least allow players to wait while waiting for the arrival of the new saga and the next season of the Netflix series.
