CD Projekt Red announced a new saga for their popular series of games based off The Witcher series of novels.
In a post dedicated to the topic, Alicja Kozera, community manager at CD Projekt Red, revealed a couple things about the title.
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.CD Projekt Red Forum post
