A new Witcher game is in the works, according to CD Projekt, “kicking off a new tale for the brand.” The new game will have its base on Unreal Engine 5, rather of CD Projekt’s REDengine, and will mark the start of “a multi-year strategic partnership with Epic Games.”
“It includes not just license, but also technical development of Unreal Engine 5 and, when applicable, possibly future versions of Unreal Engine,” CD Projekt explained. “We’ll work closely with Epic Games’ engineers to help customize the engine for open-world experiences,” says the company.

As per CD Projekt, the switch to the new engine is to further expedite the development process. “From the start, we didn’t see this as a conventional license deal; both CD Projekt Red and Epic saw this as a long-term, fruitful tech cooperation,” stated CD Projekt Red CTO Pawe Zawodny. “It’s critical for CD Projekt Red to settle on the technological direction of our next game as early as possible since we’ve invested a lot of time and money in the past evolving and adapting REDengine with each successive game release.”
