CD Projekt Red has no plans for a fourth Witcher but will 'probably' return to the world someday

Dreams of The Witcher 4 will probably never become reality, judging by the words of CD Projekt chief executive Adam Kiciński. 

He told Polish site Strefa Inwestorow (opens in new tab) that the developer has no plans for Geralt to make a comeback because The Witcher was envisaged as a trilogy, and the third game provided a definitive end to his story. 

However, the company will "probably" make another game in the Witcher universe at some point to keep fans and investors happy. It sounds like there's nothing concrete in place but if it's not a definitive sequel we can probably expect some kind of spin-off with a new cast of characters.

He also spoke a little about his ambition for Cyberpunk 2077 (opens in new tab), the developer's next open-world RPG. Kiciński said it will be much bigger in scope than The Witcher 3, and that he hopes it will become more successful. It also sounds like the developer wants to add a lot of new features to its card game Gwent (opens in new tab) in 2018, having spent 2017 balancing the gameplay.

Thanks to IGN (opens in new tab) and Reset Era user Cornbread78 (opens in new tab) for the translation.
