CD Projekt Red’s Bold Gambit: Could The Witcher 4 Be Redemption?

CD Projekt Red has given its word that The Witcher 4 will be a new experience.

The next installment in The Witcher franchise seems to be on the right track.

During a recent earnings briefing, Michał Nowakowski, the joint CEO of CD Projekt Red, shed light on the development process of The Witcher 4 and hinted at the company’s bold risk-taking strategies.

When questioned about the timeline for the game’s release, Nowakowski stated that the company was reluctant to reveal precise dates, as it was never part of their marketing approach.

Nowakowski also discussed the risks associated with introducing new elements into the upcoming installment of the Witcher games.

He acknowledges that developing a new game always means taking on some creative risks, especially when attempting to push boundaries and explore new territories. Regardless, the company is pushing forward. He confirms:

We will be adding new gameplay elements and new mechanics that you have not seen in our previous games.

One of the most exciting points mentioned in the brief was the company’s intention to build upon the foundation by introducing novel gameplay mechanics. He clarifies:

You should not be expecting ‘The Witcher 3 in new clothing’ of sorts; of course, we’re building on the shoulders of what came before, and on what we’ve learned, but we will be adding new gameplay elements. Doing such things is always a risk; it’s not just repeating what was done before.

While the absence of a concrete release date is a little tough to stomach, witnessing CD Projekt Red’s commitment to creating the next Witcher game that isn’t just a reskin shows that the wait will be worth it.

Expectations Are High for The Fourth Installment

The Netflix Witcher series was a disaster, and the franchise desperately needs a win

TW3 is a standout in the RPG genre, and in gaming as a whole. While the combat could have been better, it was a joy to play as Geralt and use his Witcher powers to interact with and shape the world around him.

CD Projekt Red nailed the open-world vibe with the game. It wasn’t Skyrim-big, but it had enough stuff to keep you busy—saving people, chasing quests, snagging treasure, and even bumping into random NPCs for some unexpected fun.

Now, with the Netflix series fiasco, it losing a gem like Henry Cavill, The Witcher 4 could be the ultimate redemption arc. It’s CD Projekt Red’s chance to sweep up the mess, sprinkle some magic, and make another genre hit.
