Adam Kiciński, President of CD Projekt Red, has revealed that work will start on a new Witcher game immediately after the release of their newest project, Cyberpunk 2020. This means production should start in September.
Though it won’t be called The Witcher 4, and will not be a direct sequel, Kiciński says that the team has a clear concept of what the game will be. This comes as quite a surprise – The Witcher 3 concluded Geralt’s story, and was meant by to developers to work as a trilogy.
But the game is set to be embedded within the series’ DNA, and there are countless other stories to be explored in this universe.
Kiciński also noted that all future projects for the company will be based around either one of the two franchises, with different teams working on them. He mentioned this during a panel with a group of journalists, which was revealed by Eurogamer. You can read a translation here.
The Netflix series has become a surprise hit for The Witcher, reigniting interest for an already popular video game and book franchise.
There’s currently a second season in development, and some critical reviews that were not exactly thrilled with the delivery and timeline of the plot for the first season, fan reaction was nothing short of spectacular. It has become one of the streaming services most popular shows, dethroning Stranger Things at least for a short while.
An Anime movie is also being planned for the series, which will also be released via Netflix.
If you’ve never played the games, it’s in your best interest to change that immediately. As a personal recommendation, The Witcher 3 is undoubtedly the best. And you don’t need to play the first two in order to understand the game; that was my introduction to the series, along with many other players.
Now go and kill some monsters.
Greg Nicotero’s Leatherface Mask and Saw Revealed in New ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Teaser
Gun Interactive’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has given us one heck of a game. The entire cat-and-mouse matches between the Family and the Victims has been a blast to navigate. Each character is fun to play as but it always comes back to Leatherface. Playing as him is always a blast. In our first bit of DLC make-up FX artist and filmmaker, Greg Nicotero gives us a new mask, a new saw, and a brand new kill. This new bit of DLC is coming in October and will cost $15.99.
The arrival of make-up designed by Nicotero is a cool one. The entire design is really cool. From his bolo bone tie to his mask designed with the mouth fixed to where Leatherface’s eye peers through.
Of course, the saw is very cool too, and has the very cool bonus feature of being named a Nicotero saw. Which somehow fits perfectly as the name of a chainsaw.
“What’s so rewarding about working alongside Greg is his wealth of knowledge, his experience with practical effects, makeup and the art of creature creation.” said Wes Keltner, CEO and President of Gun Interactive. “He’s touched so many horror franchises over the years, it just made sense to bring him on board. And when the two of us get together, it’s like kids in a candy store! We had a blast working on this,and bringing that vision to life is something both Gun and Sumo are very proud of.”
Greg Nicotero’s DLC arrives this October. The full Texas Chainsaw Massacre game is out now. What do you think of the new mask? Let us know in the comments section.
‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III’s’ Zombie Trailer Introduces an Open-World and Operators
This marks the very first time that Zombies come to the world of Modern Warfare. And it looks like they are going all out and adding an entirely new experience to the gameplay.
The new zombies-based adventure will take place in big wide-open massive worlds similar to Modern Warfare II’s DMZ mode. It will also feature operators similar to those in Warzone. These operators combined with an open-world mechanics are sure to bring an entirely new experience to the classic zombies mode that fans are used to.
Personally, I believe that this new update is exactly what the Zombies mode needed. It was due for something to mix it up and this is a very nice way to do it. DMZ mode was a lot of fun and I think that this will be the thing to shake up the world of zombies and get folks interested all over again.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III arrives November 10.
‘Mortal Kombat 1’ DLC Teases Big Horror Name
Mortal Kombat 1 may have just been released but already creator of Mortal Kombat and Injustice, Ed Boon is making plans for exciting DLC. In one of Boon’s latest Tweets, he gave a huge tease that wasn’t very subtle in nature. But, it points to a big horror icon coming to to Mortal Kombat 1.
Boon’s Tweet was a black-and-white image of all the biggest horror icons. Each icon came with check marks over icons who have been previously added and question marks over the ones that hadn’t yet been added.
This leaves Pinhead, Chucky, Michael Myers, Billy, and Ghostface all with question marks. All of these characters would be cool editions to the latest title. Especially someone like Pinhead.
Earlier this year a data spill pointed to Ghostface appearing in an upcoming title. It looks like that upcoming title may have been Mortal Kombat 1. We will have to wait and see to find out for sure. But, including a Ghostface capable of performing all kills from the full franchise would be awesome. I can already picture a garage door kill.
Who would you like to see in the latest game? If you could only choose one, who would you think it was?
