the course of CD Projekt RED has stumbled in recent years. The Polish developer has established itself as one of the benchmarks in the industry with its fantastic work on The Witcher saga, although the disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077 weighed down much of the reputation it had earned.
Now, the development team is already setting big goals for the future, just like just announced. Nothing more and nothing less than the The next Witcher game is already in developmentin what will be the “start of a new saga for the franchise.”
The novelties are succulent in the technical section, since CD Projekt abandons the REDengine graphics engine for make the leap to the power offered by Unreal Engine 5 from EpicGames. Precisely with the company that owns Fortnite, a “multi-year strategic partnership” is beginning to be forged.
In fact, we’re not just talking about future studio projects being tied to Unreal Engine 5, but the technical development of the tool itself, “as well as possible future versions of Unreal Engine. We’ll be working closely with Epic Games developers on the main objective of help tailor the engine to open world experiences“.
However, we are left without knowing more details about it, much less a release date. That yes, CD Projekt has realized two last notes, being the first that REDengine is still the engine being used for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 expansion. On the other hand, this new game of The Witcher will not be exclusive to any platform.
