CD Projekt Red has listed a job opportunity for a “camera programmer” with knowledge on “real-time third-perspective cameras”, suggesting the next big title is already well underway. The question that leaves us with, of course, is whether or not it could be relating to The Witcher 4. Or, failing that, then another third-person IP that sits under the Polish developer's domain. Though, given CD Projekt's history of titles and their formats, The Witcher definitely seems to outweigh the alternatives in this instance.
Although incredibly scarce in terms of detail, the job listing does go on to mention third-person cameras, effectively confirming the format for the next game. And, going on The Witcher's overall popularity, it seems only natural for intrigued viewers to take it with a slight glimmer of hope. Plus, after the train wreck that sadly drove Cyberpunk 2077 into the dirt, it seems CD Projekt could very well be looking to redeem themselves through a world they know best. The Witcher 4, of course.
Take it with a grain of salt…
As always, you can take the news with a slight grain of salt. Although we'd all love to see Geralt make a striking return to the big screen, there really is no telling whether or not a sequel will ever come around. Clearly, the demand is there, as are the resources to bolster a new chapter. However, it's a decision that ultimately lies with the Warsaw-based team, meaning we have no control over what's to come. So, all we can really do is cross our fingers that The Witcher will be resurrected in the near future.
So, what do you think? Could this job listing mean a new Witcher game? Is Cyberpunk 2077 getting a third-person mode? Let us know over on our social handle here. Or, if you think you've got what it takes to swing for the job opportunity, you can visit CD Projekt Red's official career page here.
