The Witcher 4 release date may not be as far away as you think. CD Projekt Red has built a reputation with some for taking a long time to develop games and reveal them very early, but none of these beliefs are based on much. Cyberpunk 2077 was announced eight years before it was released. If this is your only point of reference, it’s easy to imagine CD Project Red announcing their games well ahead of release. But, Cyberpunk 2077 is a one-time business for the Polish developer. CD Project Red announced both The Witcher 2 and The Witcher 3 two years before they were released, which of course is more representative of your standard AAA release.

What does this have to do with The Witcher 4? This week, CD Projekt Red announced that it will begin the development of new ones Cyberpunk and Witcher games starting in 2022. If this is the case, it will probably mean The Witcher 4 – or whatever the project ends up being called – will be out in 2025 or 2026 given the above timetables. If we work backwards, this will indicate that the game will be revealed sometime in 2023 or 2024 if it is going to have a similar release schedule for release as previous listings.
What we do know is that it does not want, there is a big gap between disclosure and release that Cyberpunk 2077, because this week CD Project Red also confirmed that it wants to shorten the approach in this regard, or in other words, reveal the games when they are closer to release.
For now, take all this speculation with a grain of salt, for that’s all there is, speculation. However, it is not entirely unfounded speculation, and afterwards Cyberpunk 2077, CD Project Red is probably itching to move on and get back to the bread and butter.
