It’s been nicely over a yr since The Witcher franchise surged again into reputation following the launch of Netflix’s The Witcher adaptation. The success of the present prompted a steep rise in gross sales of each CD Projekt Crimson’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, in addition to a renewed curiosity in Andrzej Sapkowski novels. Followers of the franchise have been chomping on the bit for extra ever since, however between COVID-19 delaying the present’s second season and CDPR busy at work with Cyberpunk 2077, there’s been valuable little to speak about. Till at present, that’s.
Replace: CDPR and Netflix have introduced WitcherCon for July 9, which is described as an world on-line celebration of The Witcher Franchise.
Nicely, there’s not precisely something to speak about particularly at present, however there was a fairly apparent tease by each Netflix and the Polish developer that one thing huge is within the pipeline. Over on Twitter at present the 2 firm’s had a brief backwards and forwards to lock in some form of showcase or announcement approaching July 9.
Hey @WitcherNetflix, are you free on July ninth?

As you may see within the thread above, it was CDPR that initiated the invitation to which Netflix’s channel then responded. There’s not but any clue in any respect what any of this might imply, however my predication is that it has one thing to do with the discharge date for both Netflix’s second season of The Witcher or the animated spin-off Nightmare of the Wolf, which was introduced final yr. It might even be one thing to do with the prequel present, Blood Origin.
I’ll say that’s moderately curious that CDPR is concerned in any of these bulletins, although. It’s unclear what function the developer would play apart from maybe drawing consideration to the information. We’ll have to attend and see.
