The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt video game on Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

The next chapter in the Witcher saga is in development. The announcement was made earlier this month on the franchise’s official site, and it was revealed that the project will forego the REDengine used in Cyberpunk 2077 in favor of Unreal Engine 5. No further information on the game is available at this time, and no release date or time frame for development has been announced.

The announcement also unveiled a multi-year partnership with epic games, which develops the Unreal Engine.

Based on the books by Polish author Andrew Sapkowski, the Witcher videogame franchise has been a huge success throughout its run, with their open world action-roleplaying gameplay, and have in turn helped raise interest in the books themselves. The latest installment of the series is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
