The Witcher 4 release date is a very promising sign

The Witcher 4 release date is a very promising sign

Thanks to one developer, we have some idea of when The Witcher 4 may release and it's good news for the game.

Who’s counting down the days until The Witcher 4 is released? If you just answered ‘me’, you’re in the right place because one developer on the title just teased when we can expect the game to launch.

I’m calling it The Witcher 4 but technically I shouldn’t - even though CD Projekt RED recently referred to it as The Witcher 4 too. It’s apparently not the title but yes, it does continue on from The Witcher 3. It’s a tad confusing. It’s a sequel albeit not a straight-forward one so it could be the case that Geralt is no longer the protagonist. The game will kickstart a brand new trilogy and we’ve now got some idea of when the first game of said trilogy will debut.

Would you like to see Ciri take the lead? We would. Take a look at why below.

As reported by Wccftech, CDPR CEO Adam Kicinski recently provided an update on the status of development. He said, “We are preparing things on the pipeline side and toolset sides. Some developers are still learning the [Unreal Engine 5] technology, and at the same time, there are teams working together with Epic on all aspects that are needed for our open-world, story-driven RPGs. Definitely, for [our] first project, Polaris, it will... maybe not slow down, but it won't accelerate the [development] processes. But for the next projects, we assume that it should smoothen production. That was one of the reasons behind [...] saying we want to release three big Witcher games within six years, starting with the release of Polaris, which is The Witcher 4."

See, I told you they’d called it The Witcher 4. As pointed out by ComicBook, both The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 were in development for four years. We know that development on The Witcher 4 began in 2021 so with Kicinski’s update that things are progressing well, we could see the title release in 2025 which, admittedly, isn’t soon but it’s a point to look forward to. It also means the devs have plenty of time to iron out any creases.

It’s not the only Witcher title on the way. There’s also the standalone Project Canis Majoris and the multiplayer game, codenamed Sirius.
