The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PS5 PS4

Whatever The Witcher 4 turns out to be, there's one thing we know for sure: it'll be the start of a new saga for the video game series. Announced earlier in the year, the next entry in the franchise is some way off, but will no doubt wow us with its Unreal Engine 5-fuelled visuals. More recently, CD Projekt RED has confirmed the next title will launch a saga that spans several games.

Comments made during the company's latest earnings call indicate the studio is lining up multiple Witcher adventures for the future. "We said that there will be a new saga," said CEO Adam Kiciński. He continued: "Of course, now we are pre-producing the first game of this saga. But we have in mind more than one. The first saga was three games, so now we're thinking about more than one game. But we are in pre-production on the first game from the second Witcher saga."

It's easy to assume this new story will take place over a trilogy, but it sounds like the number of games isn't set in stone yet. There's speculation among fans the new saga will include the School of the Lynx, though of course no official details are currently known. Plenty to look forward to, then.
