CD Projekt Red has been talking about Project Polaris, known to most people as The Witcher 4, but has never officially named it – until today, when CEO Adam Kiczynski officially named the game The Witcher 4.
Kiczynski discussed the implications of the studio's move to Unreal Engine 5 in collaboration with Epic Games during a Q&A session on CDPR's latest conference call. "We're still learning the technology, and there are teams working together with Epic on the necessary components for our open world RPGs," he said.
"We believe that this will speed up the production process on the next projects," he continues. "That's one of the reasons why we chose the route whereby we want to release three big Witcher games in six years, starting with the release of Polaris, which is Witcher 4.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has a notable subtitle, and since The Witcher 4 is in the midst of a new series, we now know that this part fits in with the series as a whole.
