Since closing the final chapter with Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red has already laid the plans for their next undertakings. One of which is the sequel to the highly-acclaimed The Witcher 3, codenamed Polaris, or The Witcher 4, which could be starting development this year.
As told via Reuters, CDPR Joint CEO Adam Badowski said that the company is already looking to begin the production phase of The Witcher 4 this year.
Expectations are high of what the follow-up to the multi-awarded title will be. But in a 2022 statement by CDPR, it said that the next Witcher game will kickstart “a new saga” for the series. What that implies is anybody’s guess right now. However, considering the success that The Witcher 3 has attained, the bar is certainly high for this up-and-coming sequel.
The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 were built from the ground up using CDPR’s proprietary engine, REDengine. However, it seems that the company is looking to adopt a new tool for its next project. Specifically, the company plans to use Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, which seems to be the favorite tool of choice among AAA game developers nowadays.
