CD Projekt Red Officially Confirms “The Witcher 4” as the Title for their Next Game in the Franchise.

The producer of the iconic video game franchise The Witcher, CD Projekt Red, has revealed that the next entry in the series, originally codenamed Polaris, will be titled The Witcher 4. While the company had previously refused the use of this title, CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kicinski referred to the game as such in a recent financial report.

The game is being created using Unreal Engine 5 and is not expected to be completed before 2025. CD Projekt Red has also revealed a new Witcher spin-off called Canis Majoris, a sequel to their contentious 2020 release Cyberpunk 2077, and a new IP called Hadar.

But, CD Projekt Red’s recent decision to relaunch work on the Witcher spin-off, Project Sirius, has prompted concerns about the studio’s objectives. On a recent conference call, the studio stated that they “do not want to continue with projects to which we are not connected” and that Project Sirius was going through a “dramatic shift.”

CD Projekt Red’s CFO, Piotr Nielyubovich, provided more specifics on the decision, stating that the project is “new to us in terms of style and format” and differs from the developer’s “major projects.” The choice to develop a new structure for Project Sirius was “tough, but the right one,” according to Nielyubovich, as the studio aims to minimise expenses and rethink its approach to the project.

Nonetheless, it is apparent that CD Projekt Red is committed to the Witcher brand, and fans may expect a new core trilogy and a spin-off in the coming years. While the specifics of these projects are unknown, it is evident that the company is devoted to providing fans with high-quality, immersive experiences.
