CD Projekt confirms The Witcher 3 plans
“The end of The Witcher 2 is the beginning of much larger event”
Polish studio CD Projekt RED confirmed that its epic role-playing series is soon to be a trilogy, with a third entry to The Witcher saga being indeed planned.
Speaking to German community site The-Witcher.de, Jan BartKowicz affirmed the series’ ensuing trilogy path once questioned about the cliffhanger endings in The Witcher 2.
“That’s a good question. Well, I think the problem that some people have is the overall impression. The first part could just as easily be a stand-alone, while the second part being part of a planned trilogy, logically, had a very open end for the third part has to go. Consider this example, for comparison, to films like Pirates of the Caribbean, where the first part, had a self-contained story, the latter is unchangeable, but then you think, it should be a trilogy. So people have a problem then. The end of The Witcher 2 is the beginning of much larger events, while The Witcher one was rather a cliffhanger ending.“ BartKowicz said, as conveyed by Google Translate.
The first Witcher was indeed a refreshing title, with positive reception seized from both critics and fans alike. However, the sequel was a huge step forward in CD Projekt’s game development route, and seeing a third outing from the engrossing RPG isn’t much surprising, but still undeniably a great piece of news.
