It is no secret that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best games of the decade, and many would argue perhaps ever. Although the game received an 8.7 in our review , which you can read here, it received widespread critical acclaim from virtually every major reviewer out there.
After having played this masterpiece for the third time recently , and after going through a denial of sort regarding the ending to one fine trilogy, I was left wondering if we need a Witcher 4, or if I actually want one.
A Gamespot report earlier this year indicated that a Witcher sequel was not out of the question, though the source in mind did state that one would not be here early, if ever.
The highly anticipated conclusion to Geralt’s story left many hungry for more, even after the beautifully crafted DLC, and although The Witcher 3 will always hold a special place in my heart, I’m not sure a Witcher 4 is really needed. The story ended, at least for me, in a comforting and satisfying style; I will certainly miss Geralt, but his story has concluded, and I do believe making more games would just be superfluous it, unless we talk about severe spin-offs, such as the new Gwent game (which I have yet to try), or maybe a new, unlikely protagonist. Besides, CD Projekt Red really poured everything it had and really cares for the franchise. I doubt they’d want to ruin what they have created.
It is also no secret that not only in videogames, but in many other entertainment industries, sequels, prequels, remakes, remasters and reboots are hip, but objectively speaking, many of these additions to already established franchises are merely milking them, and we certainly do NOT want that for our beloved Witcher series.
What do you think? Did the DLC leave you satisfied? Would you consider maybe a different protagonist?
In case you have been living under a rock, here is the trailer for this beautiful gem:
