The Witcher 4 release date, news, trailer, rumours, story – Everything We Know So Far
The Witcher 4 Release Date
There is currently no set release date for The Witcher 4, but to put some context to do this The Witcher 3 took about 3 and a half years to develop with The Witcher 3 game being released on May 19th, 2015 which is nearing the 3 years mark as of writing this. However, the co-founder of CD Projekt the studio behind The Witcher 3 said speaking to Eurogamer said This is the end […] there won’t be any Witcher anytime soon – if there ever will be one.” However, The Witcher series is the most successful of the company so it is most likely there will be a fourth instalment in the series.
However, the CEO of CD Projekt RED the studio in charge of development of the game said on Polish TV station TVN24 BiS“It’s too early to talk about it, but it’s not like we’re forgetting about this brand….It wouldn’t be fair towards the fans. We work within this universe for over a dozen years now and I don’t think it’s going to be the end of it.” But one thing is for certain there will be no Gerald as unfortunately, his story ended during The Witcher 3 game.

Also while speaking to Polish news site called Strefainwestorow that The Witcher games are released in trilogies meaning that there could be a Witcher 4, Witcher 5 and Witcher 6 but in the very long run.
Marcin Iwinski was noted saying. “The Witcher was designed as a trilogy and a trilogy cannot have a fourth part, can it?”
“We like this world a lot. We invested 15 years of our lives in it and a lot of money. So, we’ll think about [making a new Witcher game] at some point. But please consider us as rational people, we sometimes have weird ideas but overall our thinking is very rational. We have full rights to The Witcher games. They are ours. We have invested enormous funds into promoting it, and it’s a very strong brand.”
