The Witcher 4 Developer Assures Fans It Won’t Just Be ‘The Witcher 3 In New Clothing’

Michał Nowakowski, joint CEO of CD Projekt RED, has revealed during a Q&A following its latest financial report that The Witcher 4 won’t just be ‘The Witcher 3 in new clothing’ and has said fans should expect plenty of new wrinkles for the franchise.

Making a new game is always a creative risk, especially since we’re trying to push new boundaries and explore new fields; that’s something we haven’t actually done before. This is a pretty broad paint brush stroke, for sure, but I cannot go into too much detail without actually talking about the game per se.

I guess what I’m saying is that you should not be expecting ‘The Witcher 3 in new clothing’ of sorts; of course we’re building on the shoulders of what came before, and on what we’ve learned, but we will be adding new gameplay elements and new mechanics that you have not seen in our previous games. I’d say doing such things is always a risk; it’s not just repeating what was done before.

The Witcher 4 is still obviously a long way off yet, although CDPR has confirmed that it is entering full production this year, with more than half of the studio working on the highly anticipated project.

Last December the studio revealed that it is looking to ‘surpass’ The Witcher 3 and offer a more ‘intense story and craft more intense gameplay.’
