Insist No More: The Witcher 3 Will End with Blood & Wine

The Witcher 3

CD Project Red speaks out: Blood & Wine will be the final chapter of The Witcher 3. This is truly the last bit we are tasting from this compelling game before moving to the futuristic vibes of Cyberpunk 2077.

Prepare yourselves to say goodbye to The Witcher 3 and move to new waters – yes, it’s time to move on. Game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz is repeating upfront that Blood & Wine, the second and last expansion for The Witcher 3 is the final mission of our very own Geralt of Rivia. It’s set to arrive on May 31st and after that, the team will start concentrating on their next highly-awaited title, Cyberpunk 2077. Some may think that this is about time. Cyberpunk 2077 has indeed been in the background in a rather painful way until one member of the development team decided to give wings to hope during the last PAX East.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Tomaszkiewicz also confirmed that there will be still some patches to be released for The Witcher 3. “The first thing is that we try to fix as many bugs as we can for the second expansion and the main game,” he said. In this regards you can expect already a patch before the Blood & Wine release and probably one after.

Blood & Wine will take us to the bright colors of Toussaint.

Moving From The Witcher 3 to Different Worlds

Tomaszkiewicz will “probably” move on to the new project – a fate that is shared with the majority of the 100 people currently working on Blood & Wine. However, the directing seat will be for studio director Adam Badowski. Since its official announcement, Cyberpunk 2077 has been gaining a very eager fan base of its own and we are certainly interested in seeing how CD Projekt Red will adopt the tabletop hit from R. Talsorian Games. It’s still too early to get more details and they have said that there won’t be anything to show until 2017 or 2018. Interesting enough, the composition of the studio is gearing towards the creation of parallel teams and they have also said that there will be another blockbuster in the pipeline to be released before 2021.

Does this mean that we will never ever get back to the universe of The Witcher? For Tomaszkiewicz, this is not a complete goodbye. “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,” he said. Focusing on Cyberpunk 2077 and their other smaller projects may show that CD Projekt Red wants to distance themselves from their most successful franchise… But of course would be silly to completely abandon this IP, specially after the last standard they have set up (and accomplished) with The Witcher 3.

And what about you? Would you like to see more The Witcher titles or are you ready to move on?
