"People may ask if this is really going to be the last Witcher game. Yes, it is," CD Projekt Red boss Adam Badowski says in the announcement press release for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This final entry in the series is being slated for launch in 2014, a simultaneous launch on "all high-end platforms."
In regards to the open world, Badowski says players should expect a game world that is "30 times bigger than The Witcher 2" and its world. "Players will freely travel through woods, lakes, mountains, cities, and villages. Each region is inhabited by distinct populations with their own customs, legends and problems." Geralt will have his steed to get around or he can hop on a boat and set sail for his destination.
CD Projekt Red also promises an improved combat system this time around, though nothing specific is mentioned in the press release past the break.
