New Horizons in The Witcher 4: Innovations and a Fresh Community
CD Projekt RED promises that the fourth installment of The Witcher saga will not only boast cutting-edge technology but will revolutionize gameplay. The developers aim not only to retain their dedicated fan base but also to capture the attention of a new audience.
Nearly a decade after the release of The Witcher 3, the studio recognizes the importance of adapting to the evolution of game design and changes in gamer preferences. Sebastian Kalember, the Head of Development for The Witcher 4, emphasized the need for innovation and the goal of creating a game that surpasses its predecessor on all fronts.
"While we follow our path, don't expect us to stick to the same formula. The Witcher has its established lore, which we respect, but that doesn't stop us from introducing new ideas. We need to attract new players. After such a long hiatus since the release of The Witcher 3, we need to build a new community around the game while keeping the interest of our existing fans," stated Kalember.
CD Projekt RED aims not only for technical excellence but also for cult status with The Witcher 4. They strive to make the game more immersive in terms of narrative and gameplay, providing players with greater freedom in character development.
According to the latest report, a majority of CD Projekt RED's staff is already working on The Witcher 4. Following this installment, the fifth, sixth, and a remake of the original game are in the pipeline.
