The good news is that if you’re a fan of the series, there might be hope about the company returning to its development. According to reports, it appears that both CD Projekt Red and Sapkowski have entered into a new deal that “solidifies and reinforces the company’s relationship” with the author.
It has been noted that this new agreement also confirms that CD Projekt Red will continue to have the rights to develop games based on it. “The agreement confers new rights upon the Company and reaffirms its existing title to ‘The Witcher’ intellectual property in developing video games, graphic novels, board games and merchandise.”
That being said, this by no means confirms that the studio is working on a new The Witcher game, but it does seem like a good sign and that the company isn’t quite ready to walk away from the franchise just yet. As it stands, CD Projekt Red is working on Cyberpunk 2077, which means that if and when they do return to The Witcher, it won’t be anytime soon.
