Geralt could step out of The Witcher for first time this year by appearing in another game

Geralt of Rivia is set to make his first appearance outside of the Witcher universe (opens in new tab) later this year, according to CD Projekt Red's head of community. Marcin Momot tweeted earlier today that our favourite bathtub dweller could step into another "upcoming game", without hinting at what that game might be.

Fighting game Soulcalibur 6—the first in the series to come to PC (opens in new tab)—seems to be the favourite. CD Projekt Red already has a relationship with that game's developer Bandai Namco, and the series has a history of pulling in characters from other universes, including Star Wars.

A couple of more left-field suggestions are flying around, including Monster Hunter: World. Developer Capcom is willing to work with other teams to bring in familiar faces, and even though the game is already out it is technically "upcoming" on PC.

Other potential homes for Geralt include Final Fantasy 15, which has shown it's no stranger to crossovers by parachuting in Gordon Freeman (opens in new tab) and a bunch of weird Sims 4 costumes (opens in new tab).

Whatever it is, it may just be the last time we get to see Geralt in the flesh: CD Projekt Red has said it has no plans to pick up his story (opens in new tab) again, although it may return to the Witcher world some day, even if it isn't called The Witcher 4.
