The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD Projekt Red on life after The Witcher 3

Next up it's Cyberpunk, beyond that...

We caught up with level designer Miles Tost and marketing and PR chief Michal Platkow-Gilewski at Level Up in Berlin. During the interview, where story in an open-world environment was discussed, we asked whether the studio had any plans for the IP once they've concluded The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Miles Tost was fairly definitive, Wild Hunt is going to wrap things up for Geralt: "So far, we really honestly don't have a clue what will happen after we release Witcher 3. We know that it will be the end for us and Geralt's story, right? The trilogy of Geralt's story will end..."

Michal Platkow-Gilewski then explained how Cyberpunk 2077, the other major game in devlopment over at the studio, will take up most of their attention once The Witcher 3 was out in the wild, and that once that happens, that's when they'll consider the future of the Witcher IP.

"We are still focusing on The Witcher, and it's really hard to plan for years to come when you have project of this size in front of you," he told us. "And from the other side we know that we have another project, which is Cyberpunk, which is just around the corner - actually one floor above us - and I think the moment that we finish with The Witcher [3: Wild Hunt] we'll focus on Cyberpunk and we'll pay full attention to this project. At that moment we'll work on something maybe else, maybe not, we'll see. We have a lot of people, talented people; we'd have to use this somehow, but it's too early to tell you how. Actually, I don't know, to be honest, what will happen after Cyberpunk."

Cyberpunk 2077 was announced back in 2012, and you can read about the latest setting details here. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was recently pushed back into 2014, you can read more about the game here.
