CD Projekt: Witcher 2 “the beginning of much larger events,” third-installment possible

CD Projekt Red are open to the possibility of a third installment in The Witcher series, which considering how popular the franchise is, it’s no wonder.

Speaking in an interview with The-Witcher.de (via Gamepur), the firm’s Jan Bartkowicz said since the fist game left a bit of cliffhanger, and the second installment left things open-ended, a third game in the series would be the next logical step.

“Consider this example, for comparison, films like Pirates of the Caribbean, where the first [has a ]self-contained story, the later is unchangeable, but then you think, it should be a trilogy,” he said.

“So people have a problem then. The end of The Witcher 2 is the beginning of much larger events, while The Witcher [had] rather a cliffhanger ending.”

CD Projekt is currently at work on the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2, and according to a post over on the247arcade, the firm is also on the lookout for folks to join The Witcher team, specifically a designer for its next game with knowledge of “The Witcher lore” being “a plus.” The firm is also apparently looking for a engine programmer with “Xbox 360 experience a plus.”

CDPR has stated in the past that expansions were possible with The Witcher 2, so anything is possible at this point.

However, since the firm is hard at work on the console version, and still adding things to the PC version of Geralt’s latest adventure, don’t expect The Witcher 3 to be announced anytime soon.

Thanks, ShiroGamer.

    Link is fixed. Can’t link directly to the position itself for some reason. Works only for the main hiring page.

    The Xbox 360 footage looked so good, i absolutely didn’t expect that. I’m SO gonna buy this next year, also i’m really glad they delayed it, having both Skyrim and The Witcher 2 at the same time is just too much.

    open-ended?!?!?! They fukin’ ended in the middle of nowhere. The ending was so rushed and as a person who read all the books, the whole story messed up everything. I really hope there is a third game, but they need to adres some issues which made the sequel in a lot of thing inferior to the original.
