CD Projekt Red has said little about the new title, other than confirming it’s the start of a “new saga” for The Witcher franchise and that the game will run in Epic’s new Unreal Engine 5.

CDPR reportedly engaged in brutal sessions of crunch to rush the development of Cyberpunk 2077, resulting in a buggy, unfinished game. If Cyberpunk sets the precedent for the next Witcher title, the new game could be in development until 2030.
