The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt released in May of this year after years of anticipation, and fans were certainly not left disappointed: a massive open-world, incredible aesthetics, brilliant dialogue, and immense story-telling even in the seemingly-smaller quests. The epic title took away the Game of the Year gong at the recent Video Game Awards, as well as Best RPG and the Developer of the Year awards for CD Projekt Red. Unsurprisingly, we loved it too; check out our review.
Since release, CD Projekt Red have been respectful to their fans by supplying 16 different DLC additions absolutely free for weeks after the release, as well as the 10-hour expansion, Hearts of Stone. During 2016, we will see the second, even larger expansion: Blood and Wine, which promises a host of new features and changes.
Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt Red has recently commented on the future of the Witcher saga:
“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.”
Music to the ears of Witcher fans everywhere. Even if Geralt’s story is over, it’s clear that we will once again return to the Northern Realms in some capacity in the future.
For now, CPR at working hard on Cyperpunk 2077, but little is yet known about this huge project. What we do know is that it will be bigger than Witcher 3. What a frightening, yet truly exciting thought.
