Witcher publisher's next big games hit in 2014, 2015

CD Projekt Red confirms plans to develop two "AAA+" multiplatform projects simultaneously, two smaller releases coming in the interim.


CD Projekt Red launched The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings to critical acclaim earlier this year, and it looks like that may have to sustain fans of the studio for a while. During an investor's day presentation this week, Polish publisher CD Projekt revealed that its Red team will be working on "two different AAA+ projects simultaneously," and that the next big CD Projekt games are due out in 2014 and 2015.

Fortunately, CD Projekt has some other efforts to keep fans busy in the meantime. The developer said it would have two smaller projects released before its next major games launch. It's unclear if the Xbox 360 edition of The Witcher 2 (currently set for the first quarter of 2012) counts as one of those two projects.

In an interview with Polygamia, CD Projekt Red studio director Adam Badowski confirmed that one of the new major projects for the studio is an entirely new intellectual property. Badowski would not confirm a setting or even a genre for the new property, but he did suggest the company would not stray from its reputation for creating complex games.

Previously, CD Projekt Red has also said that it has plans for at least one more game in The Witcher franchise. For more on the most recent game in the franchise, check out GameSpot's review of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
