The Witcher: The Edge of the World officially announced

The Witcher: The Edge of the World officially announced

Geralt returns in The Edge of the World ...

CD Projekt RED has announced a brand new The Witcher project, and it’s set to land before The Witcher 4.

As you may have heard, development has now fully wrapped on the studio’s post-launch support for Cyberpunk 2077 meaning it’s full steam ahead on The Witcher 4.

Of course, The Witcher 4 is only a colloquial title. We don’t actually know what the next instalment will be called, only that it’s codenamed Polaris and will kickstart a brand new saga.

Just last week, CD Projekt RED confirmed that it now has over 400 developers working on the project, which equals around 64% of its workforce.

Unfortunately, the project is still years away from completion but there’s plenty more for The Witcher fans to enjoy.

Liam Hemsworth will soon debut in the role of Geralt of Rivia when The Witcher returns to Netflix for its fourth season next year, while CD Projekt RED has also just announced an exciting new collaboration with Dark Horse Comics.

The two companies will partner to adapt The Witcher author Andrzej Sapkowski’s short story The Last Wish as a graphic novel.

The Witcher 3’s new-gen update is well worth checking out if you haven’t already.

The Last Wish’s comic adaptation will be titled The Witcher: The Edge of the World - and it’s set to launch in December of this year.

Adapting the story is writer Magdalena Salik with art by Tommaso Bennato, colouring by Chris O'Halloran, lettering by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and cover art by Kai Carpenter.

If you’re unfamiliar with this short story, the description reads as follows: “Work is hard to come by for Geralt. And for his bardic travelling companion, Dandelion, the doldrum of the road is not a worthy subject for his rhymes or ballads.”

“As they travel to the edge of the known world, townsfolk speak of many stories, but it seems that's all they are - recitals of monsters and superstition - until a man follows Geralt with news of a devil scavenging the local fields. Get rid of the beast, but under no circumstances is it to be killed. Only how can Geralt hunt the creature, when there are no such things as devils?"

Intrigued? You should be.

Writer Salik added that this is one of her favourite Witcher stories.

“Why?” she teased (via ComicBook).

“Because of its characters who are diverse and counter-intuitive. Everyone has some ideas about devils or pixies – say farewell to them. In this story, Sapkowski plays with your established notions about heroes and villains; and plot twists as well. For me, it's one of the wisest short stories ever, going far beyond typical fantasy quest versions of this scenario.”

The Edge of the World will be published in hardback, releasing in bookstores on 17 December and comic stores on 18 December. It’ll retail for $17.99.
