The Witcher 4 Announced Will Run On Unreal Engine 5
In March 2020, CD Projekt Red announced that work on a new The Witcher game had begun, but they did not want to reveal more than that at that time. And although we’re still waiting for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to be released for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series S / X in July, CD Project Red now seems to think it’s time to tell more.
They say that the development of a new The Witcher is underway and that this story marks the beginning of a new saga. This is illustrated with the image of a new medallion that they included in their announcement. This game will not use the graphics engine REDengine as we saw in The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077, but instead the developers switch to Unreal Engine 5 which will help them set a new standard for so-called open world games. However, this is all they want to say right now because what we currently call The Witcher 4 is still several years away.
