CD Projekt Red Commences Serious Development of The Witcher 4, Allocating Two-Thirds of Its Resources to Preproduction

Get Ready, Witcher Fans: A New Adventure Awaits!

So, you’ve been feeling that itch again, haven’t you? That “let’s dive back into the world of The Witcher 3” kind of itch. Trust me, you’re not alone. In fact, it seems the stars are aligning for us fans, as CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has just let slip that the team for Witcher 4 (or whatever enchanting title they choose) is not just a dream anymore—it’s a reality, and they’re ahead of schedule!

The Magic Behind The Scenes

Keeping their promises like a true Witcher, CDPR has assembled an impressive guild of over 400 developers, ready to embark on the next chapter of The Witcher saga. They’ve even vowed to harness AI to polish the game-making process, aiming to sidestep the pitfalls encountered during the release of Cyberpunk 2077. However, co-CEO Adam Badowski wants us to know that this AI isn’t here to replace human creativity but to enhance it, promising a smoother launch for their next masterpiece.

A Rising Force

The team, codenamed “Polaris,” now boasts 403 talents, making up about two-thirds of CDPR’s warrior cadre. Impressively, this number has only risen since January, hinting at CDPR’s commitment to making the next Witcher installment something truly special. With a bigger crew on board much earlier than anticipated, we’re all on the edge of our seats, wondering if we’ll get to journey through The Witcher’s mesmerizing realms sooner than expected.

What Lies Ahead

But wait, there’s more! The Witcher 4 isn’t just a solitary venture; it’s the dawn of a new trilogy, promising even more enchanting tales, heart-pounding quests, and, of course, those dastardly monsters. Alongside this exciting endeavor, CDPR is also nurturing Project Orion (the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077) and Project Hadar, an entirely new universe waiting to be explored. And let’s not forget, they’re also overseeing the remake of the first Witcher game and concocting another mysterious Witcher RPG title.

Though it’s still early days to circle a date on our calendars for Project Polaris, CDPR’s ambition to unveil this trilogy over six years has us dreaming of embarking on our next Witcher journey by fall 2026. Could this be the timeline that propels us into the next epic saga? Only time will tell, but one thing’s for certain: our swords are sharpened, and our hearts are ready.
