CD Projekt, the developer behind The Witcher franchisee has announced a new title for mobiles and tablets.
“For several months, along with an external partner, we worked on another, unannounced project, which we plan to launch this year,” revealed CD Projekt in a management report, reported by (and English translation provided by) Eurogamer Poland. “It’s a multiplatform mobile game, made with advanced technological capabilities of tablets and smartphones in mind. Thus, we are entering a completely new territory in terms of gameplay and business model, realising our strategic plans to enter the mobile gaming market.”
It is unclear at the moment if the game is part of a new IP or will be a part of The Witcher or Cyberpunk 2077 universes. CD Projekt later responded to Eurogamer and said that the game has been in development for a year now and an official announcement will happen very soon along with the launch of beta testing of the game. “Smartphones and tablets are truly powerful platforms these days and are finally giving us the ability to develop mobile games we would like to play ourselves; games that are taking full advantage of newest smartphone and tablet technologies, and offer the quality level that we, as a studio, are always aiming to achieve.” co-founder Adam Kiciński added.
The developers’ previous games have been very well received and were mature, immersive and highly polished experiences so a mobile title, especially one that might be set in The Witcher universe is something to get really excite about. This title may sate our appetite until the next title in The Witcher series, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, launches early next year.
