Since The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launched for consoles and PC nearly a year ago, it’s been a wild ride for CD Projekt Red, full of critical praise and buckets of awards. But now it’s time to say goodbye.
The developer will be laying the game to rest with the release of its final DLC expansion, Blood and Wine. Nothing else substantial will be created for Witcher 3, though they promise to continue to repair bugs and glitches in the main game and its expansions wherever they might pop up. Game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz told the website Eurogamer that Blood and Wine will be “the last thing we deliver” as their focus shifts to their next big project, Cyberpunk 2077.
“This is the last thing we deliver and we focus on Cyberpunk,” Konrad told Eurogamer. “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.”
Sadly, this means you may not be seeing CD Projekt Red for a long time, as Cyberpunk isn’t expected to be completed until at least 2018. However, they have hinted at a more experimental title that could appear before 2016 closes, described as “a new type of video game format previously unexplored by the studio.”
