The Witcher 4 has finally been announced

Developer CD Projekt Red has finally confirmed The Witcher 4 is in development. Excited is a bit of an understatement!

In a recent blog post labelled ‘A New Saga Begins‘, the developer officially confirmed a new instalment in The Witcher game series is definitely on the way.

There is little in the way of details but does reveal that The Witcher 4 will be using Unreal Engine 5. A change from the one previously used in the controversial Cyberpunk 2077. Cyberpunk 2077 was developed in REDEngine. It’s probably for the best that they’ve gone with Unreal Engine 5, lets be honest here.

“We’re happy to announce that the next instalment in The Witcher series of video games is currently in development, kicking off a new saga for the franchise,” CD Projekt Red said in the post. “This is an exciting moment as we’re moving from REDengine to Unreal Engine 5, beginning a multi-year strategic partnership with Epic Games. It covers not only licensing but technical development of Unreal Engine 5, as well as potential future versions of Unreal Engine, where relevant. We’ll closely collaborate with Epic Games’ developers with the primary goal being to help tailor the engine for open-world experiences.

“At this point, no further details regarding the game — such as a development time frame or release date — are available.”

Whilst details are slim at best, at least we know that game number 4 is happening. Given the success of the Netflix series and the huge love for The Witcher 3, it’s no surprise that there’ll be a fourth entry to the series.

We’re hoping we’ll hear more about The Witcher 4 in the coming months. Given that the new series entry appears to be in early development though, don’t expect the next Witcher game to land anytime soon.
