The Witcher 4 now well into development as Cyberpunk 2077 comes to an end

The Witcher 4 now well into development as Cyberpunk 2077 comes to an end

Geralt is getting ready to come back onto a console near you, hell yeah!

If you’ve been holding out for news on a new The Witcher game, you’re in luck because Cd Projekt Red has confirmed it’s well into development of the fourth instalment. However, before the victory parade proceeds, spare a thought for Cyberpunk 2077, which won’t receive any further expansions.

Data from the latest Projekt Red financial overview 2023, shows that The Witcher 4, also known as Polaris, is steadily gaining traction and has been since December 2022. Almost 260 devs are working on the game, with it being the second largest project that the devs are currently working on. Projekt Red’s focus is laser sharp.

Building on from the stats, Projekt Red’s CEO Adam Kicinski laid out in no uncertain terms that the majority of people working on Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty will move over to The Witcher from, approximately, September onwards.

This is despite the fact that the latest expansion for Cyberpunk has generated a lot of interest from fans who are looking forward to getting back into the game. “The decision has actually been made. As we have announced a long time ago, we’re not going to make a second or third expansion. This is the only expansion of the game, and it has nothing to do with the numbers and how satisfied or not we are with sales or anything of the kind,” Kicinski said.

“It’s a technological decision to be honest. This is the last time we’re working on the Red Engine for the time being at least, and in the foreseeable future we are working on the Unreal Engine from Epic. This was one of the key reasons why we decided this was the only one.”

As one door closes another opens, and, it could be argued, the door opening is much more enticing and exciting. Sadly, it won’t be the LEGO version we’ve been hoping for since seeing an unofficial mockup of what that would look like. However, while Geralt has yet to discover life in LEGO form, he’ll return, as broody as ever.

For now, there’s no definitive deadline for when The Witcher 4 will be released, though we suspect it’ll be quite some time yet. But, as the saying goes, the best things are worth waiting for… apparently.
