While The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the end of Geralt's story, it probably won't be the last game in the series. This much has been said already by members of the CD Projekt Red team. Now, CEO Adam Kicinski says it wouldn't be fair to fans stop making Witcher games, even if the next one is still a long time away.

"It's too early to talk about it, but it's not like we're forgetting about this brand," he said on Polish TV station TVN24 BiS, as translated by Gamepressure. "It wouldn't be fair towards the fans. We work within this universe for over a dozen years now and I don't think it's going to be the end of it."
The Witcher 3 was released in May this year behind rave reviews, including a 10/10 from GameSpot. Just this week, the RPG took home the overall Game of the Year award at The Game Awards, while CD Projekt Red won Developer of the Year. As of August, The Witcher 3 had sold 6 million copies. All of this is to say a sequel seems to be a matter of when, not if.
In August, CD Projekt Red's Marcin Iwinski said the studio has not even thought about where to take The Witcher series next. If there is to be another game, presumably a different hero would take over for Geralt. But whatever the case, this isn't happening in the near future.
"It deserves some rest," Iwinski said about The Witcher series in August. "The world of The Witcher is gigantic and it's great to tell these stories, but I don't know when [a sequel] will happen."
CD Projekt Red's next full game, meanwhile, is Cyberpunk 2077. The dystopian RPG remains largely a mystery, as it's without a release date or any gameplay footage.
