We’ve had some very interesting and memorable titles in our (short) lifespans but some stick to us till the very end and one of them is celebrating their 10th Birthday. The Witcher series is now collectively 10 years old .
The Original game in franchise The Witcher which was released in 2007 which alongside many games spawned into a magnificent franchise which had a sequel The Witcher 2 Assassins Of Kings in 2011 and following that we had The Witcher 3 The Wild Hunt back in 2015 and that was no less than a Masterpiece and to add to its list of Awards it was also awarded numerous accolades and was nominated y various publications as Game Of The Year.
On The Witcher’s tenth anniversary CDPR has come out with a video that will have you reminiscing about the past. The video shows characters from The Witcher universe such as Ciri, Yennifer and Dandelion amongst others gathered around a table playing Gwent eating food , and just being merry while Geralt narrates in the background.
You can check out the video below (brace for a rollercoster of emotions.)
CD Projekt Red has said that The Witcher 3 would be the last game in the franchise which would star Geralt and the series was indefinitely on a hiatus. Which for me works just fine as you cant rush a masterpiece. The Witcher 3 was a great farewell for Geralt and whoever takes up the mantle of the hero in the next Witcher series , presuming we have one of course , will have big boots to fill.
A Witcher 4 makes sense commercially and in terms of story telling as well. The Witcher universe has a lot of source material to draw upon from, and with a Netflix show heading our way as well , stock in the franchise will only rise. Hence we might not have seen the last of The Witcher games just yet.
