We knew Blood and Wine would be the last major expansion for The Witcher 3, and now CD Projekt Red has confirmed that it's the full-stop end of new content for the sprawling open-world RPG. CD Projekt Red game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz told Eurogamer that, in terms of new stuff, "this is the last thing we deliver and [then] we focus on Cyberpunk".
That's not to say the studio will be totally finished with The Witcher 3 after from Blood and Wine, which will be released on May 31: "The first thing is that we try to fix as many bugs as we can for the second expansion and the main game," Tomaszkiewicz said, "and we will release a patch before we release the expansion and maybe one later."
After that, he and many of the 100 people working on Blood and Wine will likely move over to development on Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt Red announced that project way back in 2013, and we still don't have a firmer release window than "2017-2021", so the Cyberpunk team probably won't mind the extra help.
The Witcher 3 will have officially been out for a year as of May 19. It's received a remarkable quantity of new content (both free and paid) in that time given how huge the game was to begin with. It's a little sad to know that the ride is finally at an end, but what a ride it was.
