CD Projekt RED is like... my dream developer. I'm not even a huge fan of their games, but I have so much respect for how they run their team. Ending the franchise and moving on to new worlds? So, so, so awesome.

I can't tell you how totally bored I am with Gears of War and Mass Effect making trilogies and then going back and making spin-off titles. End the dang things. Give them the respect they deserve and provide fans the closure and drama they deserve after three long games.

Then, maybe five years down the line, think about bringing it back with something different, something new, something that won't just make people think less of your trilogy.

The Witcher may end up being one of, if not the best trilogies ever made simply because CD Project RED are making it knowing there will be a proper end, and nothing more to wrap up loose ends afterwards. Leave it all on the table, guys, and show the industry how it should be done.

The last Witcher game EVER? NOOOOOOOOO!!! Okay, give me a chance to stop crying, here......
.........
.........
Ok, it's not going to happen, the tears just keep running. I do understand where they're coming from, and I'm so glad to see that they want to make sure this stays an amazing series, and that there's no chance that a sequel of a sequel of the sequel's spin-off's sequel will sour this amazing franchise's great name.
CDProjektRED, my respect for you has climbed even higher than it was before, and I agree with Bluexy, they may just be the dream developer we all needed.
So in short, I'm sad to hear The Witcher ending, but I'm so happy to see CDPR keeping in mind that a good game does not need countless installations to stay amazing, as a true great game will leave its mark on gamers with just a few, and this is what the Witcher has done for many of us, I'm sure. I know it did for me.
With this and Cyberpunk 2077, I can't wait to see where these guys go next!

Seems like these guys have their road map for the future firmly in place..

2014 - 'The Witcher 3'
2015 - 'Cyberpunk 2077'
2016 - Onwards - 'Cyberpunk 2 and 3' leading into possibly a new franchise to take it's place.

I think that is the kind of road map they will go for. CD Projekt RED don't seem to be the kind of studio that wants to bog themselves down with several projects at once. So for 'Cyberpunk' to take over for 4-5 years before being replaced by their next big thing seems logical, unless at some point in the future they grow big enough to make two games at once.

I think 'The Witcher 3' being open world makes sense from a business stand point as I am sure they have observed how crazy popular open world games are. I mean pretty much anything that has a huge map sells well and 'The Witcher 3' could be CD Project RED's 'Skyrim', it could be the game that plants them firmly on the map for gamers that don't already know who they are. I'm excited for CD Projekt RED as this could be their breakthrough into the mainstream where they belong, everyone should be playing their games.

bluexy, really? What's the problem with going back to a world you've finished a story in and fleshing it out in different areas, times etc with different characters? I love it when books, games and films do that. It creates a richer world and experience.

That said, it can be done badly and/or purely for banking on a brand. I hate that. I would have complete faith in CDProjekt Red not to do that though. I hope if they have a story to tell in the universe of the Witcher they won't shy away from it just because Geralt has finished his arc.

It can be good, but lets be serious we've had a decade of mega-publishers running series into the ground. Can you honestly say there is no series you've played that had fantastic initial titles then after the 4th 5th (8th lol) entry it's like they aren't even trying any more?

That is whay he is refering to.

I can honestly say I've loved the two Witcher games I personally don't feel ready to leave that world, but on a certian page it's kind of exciting. Hopefully this means they won't pull a ME3 on us.

I get what he's referring to. My point is that it can be done extremely effectively. I could name a half dozen books series off the top of my head. Some film franchises delve into their lore for spin offs that end up as good as if not better than the originals.

Granted it's not as prevalent in games in my experience. That doesn't mean it hasn't happened though. If anyone was going to be able to do it properly it's a developer like CD Projekt Red.

Developing for fans is a great thing and the developers at Cd Projekt RED do that with extreme quality. I believe that The Witcher 3 will be the most epic game ever in story, in gameplay, and every other stuff the developers planned. RPGs are the best genre of gaming.
