Since the release of CD PROJEKT RED’s RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, today’s announcement of another title in the works represents the first formal confirmation of a new Witcher game.
A medallion is included in the teaser graphic for the next game, along with the slogan A New Saga Begins. Beyond this early confirmation of a new tale in The Witcher franchise, no more information was offered, such as a development timeline or a release date. Other details announced is that the developer will be moving to Unreal Engine 5 as part of the multi-year strategic partnership with Epic Games.
Speaking on the use of Unreal Engine 5 for this, and future games, CTO of CD PROJEKT RED, Paweł Zawodny stated:
“One of the core aspects of our internal RED 2.0 Transformation is a much stronger focus on technology, and our cooperation with Epic Games is based on this principle. From the outset, we did not consider a typical licensing arrangement; both we and Epic see this as a long-term, fulfilling tech partnership. It is vital for CD PROJEKT RED to have the technical direction of our next game decided from the earliest possible phase as; in the past, we spent a lot of resources and energy to evolve and adapt REDengine with every subsequent game release. This cooperation is so exciting, because it will elevate development predictability and efficiency, while simultaneously granting us access to cutting-edge game development tools. I can’t wait for the great games we’re going to create using Unreal Engine 5!”
