The Witcher PS5 PlayStation

A new trilogy of Witcher games is now in pre-production at developer CD Projekt Red, with the first entry currently known as Project Polaris. Now we know who will be helming the endeavour, with lead animator Sebastion Kalemba (who served in that capacity during the development of both The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077) taking up the mantle of game director.

Very little is known about the direction in which this new generation of Witcher games will go now that Geralt has hung up his swords for good. Fans want to believe that Ciri will feature as the new protagonist, but nothing has been confirmed as yet. The only solid lead we have to go on is the above image, depicting a medallion of the newly-minted Witcher School of the Lynx lying in the snow, which has been confirmed by CDPR.
