CD Project Red is developing a new Witcher game† The studio announced the project today with a teaser that it shared on Twitter. “A new saga begins,” states the teaser, with an image of what appears to be a lynx-esque Witcher medallion in the center.

That may not seem like much to go on, but it actually represents a substantial clue as to what to expect from the new game. Geralt van Rivia, the main character of Andrezej Sapkowski’s dark fantasy novels and all the adaptations that followed, was a student of the School of the Wolf and went on to wear a Wolf medallion on his adventures. The teaser suggests that this new game will feature a Witcher from the School of the Cat. They handle monster hunting a little differently than their Wolf School counterparts. Most notably, they have no policies that prevent them from meddling in the politics of the continent.

The new game doesn’t have a release date yet, but as part of today’s announcement, CD Projekt Red shared its move to Unreal Engine 5 for all of its future projects as part of a multi-year partnership with Epic Games. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077 ran on the studio’s own REDengine. After Cyberpunk’s mess, the move to UE5 may give some players confidence that we could see the old CD Projekt again.
