Speaking to Lega Nerd in a recent interview, the Game Director for the upcoming new Witcher saga, Sebastian Kalemba, clarified that CD Projekt Red will aim to appeal to both series veterans as well as fresh faces with the next mainline entry in the series, The Witcher 4 – citing the lengthy period of time between The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s original 2015 release and the future chapter as a motivating factor for the inclusive approach.
While the exact form The Witcher 4 will take is still unknown, Kalemba insists the game is still “a few years” away and that the team will endeavour to surpass its wildly popular prior offering in terms of quality.
“We want to continue in the same direction we had taken, but we don’t want to play the same game. It is clear that we have to try to please a new audience. We cannot target only the audience who is already fond of the saga. We also need to create a new community, and on this, I think I can say that it will be an excellent entry point for many players.”
In other CD Projekt-related news, another substantial content update for Cyberpunk 2077 is set to drop later today alongside the Ultimate Edition featuring the base game and the Phantom Liberty expansion.
Patch 2.1 will feature a fully functional metro system, a portable radio for listening to the various in-game radio stations while outside of a vehicle, repeatable races and hangouts for romantic interests, new vehicles and motorcycle tricks, updates to select boss encounters (including buffing Adam Smasher), interactive viewpoints for taking in the majesty of Night City and much more. It is highly likely that this will be the last big update for the title before the developers move on to other projects.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is now available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
