CD Projekt will announce its brand new IP tomorrow at its summer press conference, not The Witcher 1 for consoles as reported this morning, the company has told Eurogamer.

in a statement, CDP head of marketing Michał Platkow-Gilewski said it would have Witcher-related surprises for late 2012 and 2013, but insisted tomorrow’s announcement had nothing to do with a console version of The Witcher 1.

Instead, it’ll unveil the second IP the company advertised for in recent job listings a few weeks back.

“We are gearing up for our upcoming conference and we have encountered some speculations concerning what we will be announcing,” said Gilewski.

“We would like to share some light about what will happen tomorrow. In regard to the Witcher, we are planning some surprises for the second half of the year and for the next year, but during the conference we will sum-up The Witcher and Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition also, we will give a bunch of new information. To make it really clear – we will not be announcing Witcher 1 for consoles.

“The major announcement on the conference tomorrow is related to the gun icon on career page. We will give you the first bit of information about our second AAA RPG in development. We have some really exciting news to share, so make sure join us at 5PM GMT on our live-stream:”

The firm has also released the first teaser image of the title in question. It’s posted below in full.
