The Witcher 2

The Witcher 2's hotly anticipated 2.0 patch, perhaps its witchiest to date, is just around the corner, but CD Projekt's not letting Geralt hang up his monster-killing swords and lady-killing, well, equipment just yet. There's plenty more on the way, the developer said during the Eurogamer Expo. As for precisely when it's coming, well, that's a bit less clear.

"We still have at least one big title ahead of us in The Witcher franchise," designer and writer Jan Bartkowicz told Eurogamer. "All I can say is - outside of when the preproduction starts and finishes - with the story team we were probably in preproduction for The Witcher 3 during making The Witcher 2."

He then went on to say more than "all" he could say:

"Of course we're not announcing anything. We cannot say, I cannot say - I don't know if it's going to be The Witcher 3 or something else that covers the story, but there's probably going to be some releases in the future."

In the meantime, though, The Witcher 2 2.0 is hardly the incredible fantasy sequel's swan song.

"All I can say is we're planning on releasing something," Bartkowicz explained. "[The Witcher 2.0 is] not the last update for The Witcher 2. That's what I can assure you."
