Polish studio CD Projekt Red has had a very busy 24 hours, announcing a slew of new projects in the works including a new The Witcher trilogy.
If that wasn’t enough, Witcher fans will be absolutely spoilt by the announcement of two more spin-off games, set in the The Witcher universe.
The announcements came as part of the studio’s ‘Group Strategy Update’ broadcast, which also revealed an in-development sequel for Cyberpunk 2077 and a brand new IP called Hadar.
The Witcher – new Witcher trilogy & Polaris
First and foremost, was the new Witcher trilogy. This will kick off with the ‘new The Witcher game’ that was previously announced back in March.
It now has a codename, at least – Polaris – and will be the beginning of ‘a new saga’ for the series with two more games to follow it and make “a new AAA RPG trilogy.”
While there was no specific release date mentioned, the studio said they aim to launch all three games across six years, with each being released two years after the previous instalment.
The Witcher – codename Canis Majoris and Sirius
Two games that aren’t part of the trilogy were also announced, with the codenames Canis Majoris and Sirius.
The first of these, Canis Majoris, is said to be a “full-fledged” Witcher game, but will be developed by an external studio for the first time. However, this studio (while unnamed) will be supervised by “experienced developers who have previously worked on Witcher games”.
It’ll also use Unreal Engine 5, and the same tools that were created for Polaris.
Sirius, meanwhile, will be the game developed by The Flame in the Flood studio The Molasses Flood, who were bought by CD Projekt Red in October of last year.
While it’ll be set in The Witcher universe, it’s said that this game will target “a much broader audience”. It’ll also include both singleplayer and multiplayer gameplay.
No release windows or platforms were given for these projects yet, but it’s definitely going to be a very busy future ahead for Witcher fans. Hopefully, we’ll find out more about all of these projects in the near future.
