The Witcher 3 confirmed
The Witcher 3 will pick up after the events of the last game in the series, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
The Witcher series of role playing games (RPG) will become a trilogy. Polish game development studio CD Projekt RED confirmed that a third Witcher game is on the way.
Jan BartKowicz confirmed the trilogy when questioned about the cliffhanger endings in The Witcher 2 when speaking to German community site The-Witcher.de.
"That's a good question. Well, I think the problem that some people have is the overall impression. The first part could just as easily be a stand-alone, while the second part being part of a planned trilogy, logically, had a very open end. Consider this example, for comparison, to films like Pirates of the Caribbean, where the first part had a self-contained story, the latter is unchangeable, but then you think, it should be a trilogy. So people have a problem then. The end of The Witcher 2 is the beginning of much larger events," BartKowicz said.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was released on May 17 of this year and met with critical acclaim. The game was released for the PC and Xbox 360 gaming platforms only.
A release date, as well as a working title for the forthcoming game is yet to be revealed.
