  • Share

The director for the upcoming Witcher game trilogy is a CD Projekt Red veteran who worked on Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3 and the Gwent standalone.

The new director for The Witcher 4: Polaris is a CD Projekt Red veteran who plans to work on the series’ next trilogy.

Sebastian Kalemba announced on social media that he will direct the next trilogy in the Witcher series, starting with the fourth game codenamed Polaris. “I’m proud to be part of CDPR and work with such a talented and passionate team,” Kalemba added. The director has over 16 years of experience in the animation industry and joined CDPR in 2014, where he worked on games like Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 and was an art director for Gwent. Project Polaris was announced in October and is still in pre-production, meaning fans shouldn’t expect to play the game in the next couple of years.

In October, CD Projekt Red revealed another game, codenamed Canis Majoris, a ground-up remake of the original Witcher game. Fool’s Theory, another Poland-based game studio, will be handling the remaster. While CDPR won’t be directly producing the game, they ensured fans that the studio would still maintain complete creative control. Fool’s Theory has developed several other high-profile fantasy games, such as Baldur’s Gate III and Divinity: Original Sin 2, and several members of the company have worked on previous Witcher titles.

The Witcher 4 Isn’t the Only CD Projekt Red Sequel In the Works

The upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, known as Project Orion, will be developed by a brand-new U.S.-based team that the company hopes will become “CD Projekt Red North America.” Several key personnel from the first game will be moving to Boston to work on Orion to ensure it remains true to the original. Very few details are available about the new title, and given how early in development the other projects CDPR announced are, some fans are skeptical it will be released anytime soon.

There is still no new information regarding the next-gen remaster for The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, still set to release in the fourth quarter of 2022. The update will bring the game to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S and increase PC graphical quality. Like the remake of the original Witcher, this project is being handled by Saber Interactive, the company responsible for The Witcher 3‘s Nintendo Switch port.

As of this writing, there are still no further details regarding The Witcher 4 or the next two games in the trilogy.
