Blood and Wine will be the final expansion for the humongous (and critically very well received) Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, with developer CD Projekt Red’s attention already on their next full game, Cyberpunk 2077.
However, it looks as though Blood and Wine will not be our final chance to guide Geralt -or some other hero – on his slightly misogynistic path of adventure. Not if game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz has his way, that is.
In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Tomaszkiewicz had this to say about the prospects of a return to the Witcher franchise:
“Personally I hope that someday in the future we will do something more because I love the setting and I work on The Witcher games around 12 years right now… But I don’t know what we will decided. The strategy plan they’ve got they will share with us soon. We’ll see.”
Our take is that CD Project Red will return at some point – after all, with the series gaining in both popularity and quality over the first few games, it’ll be difficult to resist the urge NOT to go out on a high and instead milk that cash cow just a little harder. Especially if Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t pull in the same kind of numbers.
