GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns April 26-28 with its largest event for leading gaming companies. Reserve your place here!
CD Projekt Red has announced the active development of a new game in The Witcher series. Also, the Polish developers are switching from REDengine to Unreal Engine 5.
It’s not the first major series to make the leap; Mass Effect could be heading towards the Unreal Engine instead of sticking with Frostbite.
The change of engines heralds a new partnership with Epic Games. The partnership includes licensing as well as ongoing technical developments. It also includes using newer versions of Unreal if and when they are released. CD Projekt Red continues to use REDengine in connection with Cyberpunk 2077, including the upcoming expansion.
Unfortunately, there are no further specific details about the new Witcher game. Without even a hint as to where the title is in the development cycle, and without even a vague release date, it’s safe to assume that the next Witcher title is still a long way off.

CD Projekt Red announced The Witcher 3 in 2013 and released it in 2015. All in all, that’s a pretty quick turnaround. But the studio first announced Cyberpunk 2077 in 2012, and it took until 2020 for it to come out.
