Already last year we reported that CD project is working red at a AAA game in the Witcher Universe . Nothing was officially announced, but a job advertisement revealed that a successor to the RPG hits The Witcher 3 will be on the program in the coming years.

Announcement by The Witcher – The New Saga

Since official announcements are also a bit fine, we can now tell you that the responsible persons of CD project Red with a press release just have a rausen. First, most important: With a new Witcher part, a completely new SAGA should be started for the franchise. Say: We do not necessarily have to do with “The Witcher 4”. The “The Witcher” title is underlaid with “A New Saga Begins”.

And then there was still an exciting second announcement: The previously used Red Engine is sent in pension. Instead, one has received a multi-year partnership with the experts at Epic Games to give the upcoming games optimally in Unreal Engine 5 for life. The in-house Red Engine is to be used only at the coming expansion of cyberpunk 2077, as the main game is on this engine.
