CD Projekt Red is currently working on several games in The Witcher series, including Project Polaris, which is presumably The Witcher 4. It likely won’t be released until 2025 at the earliest as it only entered pre-production in March 2022. The studio is also working on a remake of the first Witcher game and has confirmed that it will feature an open world.
The Flame in the Flood developer Molasses Flood is also working on a separate game in the franchise called Project Sirius. However, its development was recently reset and has a new multiplayer framework.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was first released in 2015 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions recently launched in December 2022.
In IGN’s The Witcher 3 review, we said, “Even if the plot isn’t terribly interesting, the many characters who play a part in it are, and along with the excellent combat and RPG gameplay, they elevate The Witcher 3 to a plane few other RPGs inhabit.”
