The Developers Of The Witcher 4 Want Their New RPG To Be A Good Entry Point


Even if you have not played The Witcher 3, the developer wants you to feel right at home

The Witcher 4 developer CD Projekt Red wants the next installment of the RPG series to appeal to both newcomers and long-time fans. The Witcher 4’s game director Sebastian Kalemba reveals the studio’s plans for the highly anticipated sequel in an interview with Italian outlet Lega Nerd  (translated by WCCF Tech). “We want to continue on the same path we’ve taken, but we don’t want to make the same game,” Kalemba tells the outlet. “We’ve got some lore elements that must be kept. After all, it is still the same universe, and we can’t go beyond certain limits.”

“We must follow a very specific path and innovate on that,” the director continues. “At the same time, it’s clear that we have to try to appease a new public. The Witcher 4 won’t be out for some years, and it’ll be a long time since the previous one, so we cannot just target the audience already fond of the saga. We must also build a new community.”

Kalemba goes on to say that they believe The Witcher 4 will be an “an excellent entry point for many players” that won’t forget the long-time fans “who still wish to follow Geralt’s adventures.”
