Would you like a Witcher 4?

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:

YES. Behind Uncharted 4, The Witcher 3 is my favorite game of the generation. CD Projekt RED did just about everything right here, and I especially appreciated the way they handled pacing (by breaking up a massive world into two distinct parts to keep you from being overwhelmed and maintaining more of a forward focus) and the story. It's extremely difficult to put forth a deep, cohesive story in a sandbox game for a few obvious reasons, but this has the BEST story I may have ever seen in an open-world adventure, RPG or otherwise.

Did everything (with the exception of Gwent, which I didn't like) and loved it. Probably put in well over 100 hours and that includes the first expansion. Ended up getting Geralt up to Lv. 40 with all kinds of awesome equipment. ;) Didn't play Blood and Wine just because it came out too late for me; by that time, I had moved on to other things and I just couldn't go back to The Witcher 3 THAT much later. That's the problem with these longer DLCs...they're well worth the money but the amount of time they take to produce, I think you lose a lot of the original fanbase because they've moved on.
