The Witcher 3 teased?

Teaser image on CD Projekt Red site shows off Geralt's sword; new project announcement planned for February 5.

Polish developer CD Projekt Red has added to existing rumours that a Witcher 3 announcement could be on the way.

Posting on the official Witcher community site, the developer revealed an image above an update on the REDkit beta program.

The image depicts the hilt of Witcher protagonist Geralt's sword.

"If you are wondering what's that in that picture above--well, we'll leave it for your imagination to answer," the developer said.

Last week, a secret message from CD Projekt Red was reportedly uncovered in the developer's Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, which spoke of a "fully open-world game with an intense story".

CD Projekt Red has announced that it will reveal its next project on February 5. The REDkit is the developer's set of Witcher 2 modding tools.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was released in May 2011 for the PC to a warm critical reception, later arriving on the Xbox 360.

If The Witcher 3 delivered same standard of the endings as that of TW2 EE then it will be the most satisfying game trilogy with perfect end to a perfect series . Choices DO matter in The Witcher games , but it'll be even more spectacular if TW2 choices will effect The Witcher 3 then this series will raise such a high bar that it will make it difficult to deliver for other devs .

Why would Aaron Paul want to do this movie? I would like to think he could find a better movie or another TV series. They must be giving him one big paycheck.

Hold on there guys.  I haven't finished the first game, and my computer kind of chugs on the second game...please stop for a while.  I just need to catch up...plus I need to get a more powerful computer anyway.  Ugh, not looking forward to the dent that'll leave on my wallet.

It's a reward for modders who participate in beta tests of REDkit - The Witcher 2 modding tools. It's official.

Witcher 3 = pre-order,  Cyberpunk 2077 = pre-order.   Basically anything CDProjekt Red puts out on consoles I'll pre-order and they are the only developers I can say that about.

They said they are preparing a Dark fantasy game but they did not tell if it will be a sequel to Witcher

Ohh my...The Witcher 3, this game will be legendary. The Witcher 2 was the same but you really had to play the game a secound time to experience both sides of the war. I wounder if the Witcher 3 will be set in the Nilfgaardian Empire?

I hope they improve the story a bit this time rather than the texture quality. It was a little disappointing after the first game. I'm only playing it for the interactive story after all.

You know damn near every single person i have talked to said The Witcher 2 was a great game not to mention the game received stellar ratings so i was stoked when it came out on XBox 360. I bought the game and started playing it and i could not get into it at all. I tried and tried but just couldnt so i think im gonna pass on this one....

@Simplythebest12 but they also said "you can probably guess what it is" and seeing as the Witcher is the only game the company's ever made

@psdsoldier25 Everyone has their own tastes.  I know I feel the same about Skyrim.  It may be a great game for 90% of gamers out there but I put a few hours into it and just can't get into it.  Different strokes for different folks as they say.

@psdsoldier25 I would play the first game first.  It is like $10 on steam and from 2007 so if you have a new or decent PC you can probably play it.

@psdsoldier25 Then maybe read a book instead?
The game is based on a book afterall...
People here in poland, probably want to play the game more after reading the book, not otherwise.

@psdsoldier25 I would recomend you start with the first game, just get the enhanced edition on the PC, yeah it's hard to get into, but once it starts going you'll be hooked.

@The_G_S @MajinSquall Why can't we have all 3, I sure those who didn't buy the pc version and only has a PS3 wish to play this amazing game.

@toddx77 @psdsoldier25 Yeah i have a pretty decent pc. I am pretty sure i would be able to run it guess i need to purchase the first one and give the series another try...

psdsoldier25

@Evilnator @psdsoldier25 Thats what everyone has told me. I guess i am gonna give the series another shot. Theres way to much hype around the first and second games for me not too. I just remember buying the second one and the game not being able to keep my attention and for some damn reason the learning curve with the controls had me wanting to put my head through a wall. Why that was i had no idea....

@Altazen @toddx77 @psdsoldier25   Steam puts it on sale for 75%% off ($2.49) very regularly, summer/winter sales you can pretty much count on it. With purchase, Steam also gives you a free key to redeem a full drm-free backup copy (with all the Enhanced Edition bonus goodies to download as well) on GOG. Same goes for TW2. I bought both Witcher games on just this past holiday steam sale and have been hooked. On sale or not, I think the games are an incredible value really.
