Witcher 3 Wraps Up This Trilogy, but Not Necessarily the Series
Tucked away in yesterday’s Witcher 3 announcement was the statement that this would be the final Witcher game from CDProjekt RED. Accoding to the press release, “They’ve [CDProjekt] announced that this, the ultimate game in the series, will also be the final Witcher game from the studio.” It also quoted studio head Adam Badowski as saying, “People may ask if this is really going to be the last Witcher game. Yes, it is. Why? Because we believe that we should end the series on a high note.”
Many fans of the series that were despondent at that news, but this morning brings them a gleam of hope. Eurogamer reported that, “when CDPR studio head Adam Badowski said The Witcher 3 would be the last Witcher game, what he really meant was it would be the last game of this trilogy.”
Naturally, we wanted to confirm this news, so we spoke with CD Projekt PR guru Tom Ohle, who told us that there’s still a chance of future games being made. He also tweeted the news:
FYI: The Witcher 3 will wrap up the saga of Geralt of Rivia, but we do leave open the possibility of returning to the Witcher world.

So while the current story of Geralt may be ending, there’s hope for future installments. In my opinion, that’s awesome news.
