According to the developers, The Witcher 4 is coming along nicely and they’re eager to let people know that the sequel to the 2015 mega-hit will “break new ground and stand apart from the games that came before it.”

Michał Nowakowski, joint CEO of CD Projekt Red, spoke about the upcoming game during a recent earnings briefing. During the call, it was said that The Witcher 4 would not be “The Witcher 3 in new clothing” While we didn’t find out anything solid about the plot of the game or which characters it would follow, we have got a sense of the direction the developer is heading.

Nowakowski said, “When it comes to the risks of innovative elements--making a new game is always a creative risk, especially since we're trying to push new boundaries and explore new fields; that's something we haven't actually done before. This is a pretty broad paintbrush stroke, for sure, but I cannot go into too much detail without actually talking about the game per se.”

It’s unlikely the sequel will push out too far from the previous games, or the source material in the books, but CD Projekt Red is keen to try new things, although Nowakowski does temper expectations somewhat by saying, “I'd say doing such things is always a risk; it's not just repeating what was done before.”

The Witcher 4 will follow the company’s last title, Cyberpunk 2077, which was released to complaints and issues with the quality of the game. It’s obvious the developer doesn’t want a repeat of that fiasco. The Witcher 4 is currently the game furthest along in development with over 400 people working on it. While there is no release date planned, it has been mentioned in the past that we could see the game as early as 2025.
