The Witcher is one of the most outstanding single-player games that has released in recent years, and with CD Projekt Red recently fixing Cyberpunk 2077, it appears they may be trustworthy again.
Well, while it still seems like an enternity unitl The Witcher 4 releases, we have some new information to share around the release date.
The Witcher 4: Release Date, Unreal Engine 5 and More
CD Projekt Red have confirmed that The Witcher 4 is going to be releasing sometime in the near future, and that it's in development over at their studios.
They've noted the following in regards to the release date.
"We’re happy to announce that the next installment in The Witcher series of video games is currently in development, kicking off a new saga for the franchise."
"This is an exciting moment as we’re moving from REDengine to Unreal Engine 5, beginning a multi-year strategic partnership with Epic Games. It covers not only licensing, but technical development of Unreal Engine 5, as well as potential future versions of Unreal Engine, where relevant. We'll closely collaborate with Epic Games’ developers with the primary goal being to help tailor the engine for open-world experiences.
At this point, no further details regarding the game — such as a development time frame or release date — are available.
REDengine, the technology which powers Cyberpunk 2077, is still being used for the development of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 expansion."
So while the game is going to use Unreal Engine 5 and more technology, we don't have any news surrounding a release date as of now.
If we were to guess, one would say somewhere around 2025-2027 is the best guess for The Witcher 4 release date.
