CD Projekt RED in March of this year announced the next entry in The Witcher series in is development and it will be using Unreal Engine 5 instead of REDengine.

CD Projekt Group CEO Adam Kicinski on the Q1 2022 results conference call stated the developer is happy with the progress on the game and improvements are being seen with the efficiency in the development due to using Unreal Engine 5.

The next entry in The Witcher series haws now entered pre-production with over 100 developers already working on it. It will likely still be some years before the game releases as the majority of CD Projekt RED is focused on the first Cyberpunk 2077 expansion.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition will be coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S in Q4 2022.

This is the exact kind of super early announcement that devs need to avoid. Nothing but trouble comes from mentioning games years ahead of launch.

I don't mind something like this if it stops there, what I don't like is the drip feed of videos and trailers that we are subjected to for all the years in between the initial announcement and release that don't match the final product either graphically or story wise .
We would be much better off if they instead made one big promo trailer for the main industry shows close to release , it would help ensure maximum buzz at the optimum time and the developers wouldn't need to have spent all that time and effort making trailers that are so early that from a representing gameplay and graphics perspective are barely fit for purpose anyway and need to display not final product and subject to change warnings.

We are announcing a game that you will see the first trailer in 3 years. Then you have to wait for another 3 years to actually play it. Then you have to wait another year for it to reach a playble state.

Almost an announcement of an announcement... Anyone expect this game being launched in less than lets say 5 years?

I predict it will be announced for a fall 2025 launch, but actually launch in fall 2026.
