The Witcher 3 will be the finale to the Geralt of Rivia trilogy, but CD Projekt Red intends to continue working in the universe novelist Andrzej Sapkowski created, co-founder and joint CEO Marcin Iwinski and executive producer John Mamais told Polygon during an E3 demo.
Iwiński told us that the universe Sapkowski created is a vast one with a lot of stories left to tell.
"With the third installment, we should wrap it up and conclude a lot of threads," Iwiński said. "We are not killing the world and walking away from it, but we will definitely want to make this game the finale in a big way."
Mamais added that Witcher fans could even see Geralt reappear in a lesser role in the future.
"We might even include Geralt in later games potentially," Mamais said. "We just need to talk about it and figure out what we're going to do next."
CD Projekt Red will also continue its consumer friendly policy of offering free DLC, though console platform holders come with certain rules.
"Sometimes you cannot just give content for free," Mamais said. "We will do our best to choose the most gamer friendly solution, and honestly speaking, should the need be — if we will be able to afford it — in many cases we will pay out of pocket for that. Please don't forget we are an independent studio, but I really believe that DLC and updates are free things."
