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

No Caption Provided

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.

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

@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

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.

But to be serious , I hope they double the number of endings xD
