Don't get too attached to Geralt when you play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt .
No, it's not a spoiler. It's just that developer CD Projekt Red believes Geralt's story will draw to a close in the latest franchise entry. As senior writer Jakub Szamałek told IGN in a recent interview:
"I think good stories must have an ending. You cannot extend them indefinitely, and we felt that Geralt has had such an amazing adventure, and his saga is already so long and complex that this seemed like a good point to think about an appropriate finale for the story."
Of course, this doesn't mean the IP in question is done. Szamałek added that " The Witcher universe is a very big place" and they "might return to it at some point." But the takeaway is, Geralt finishes his long quest in this installment, which isn't necessarily terrible news.
Even the most successful franchises need a refreshing protagonist every now and then. Well, unless you're in a Nintendo franchise.
