Two thirds of CD Projekt developers are now working on The Witcher 4

>As revealed during an earnings conference for the publisher’s FY 2023 earnings, the development team now sits at 403 staff.

>Joint CEO Michał Nowakowski explained that following the release of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, the number of staff working on that game has now dropped to just 17, with others being distributed to other projects.

>“The Polaris team, on the other hand, has grown to over 400 developers,” Nowakowski said, “reaching its target size for entering the production phase. This is scheduled for the second half of the year.”

400 fricking people. Holy frick. Also what do we want to see in the Witcher 4? More cute girls? Witcher can have his own base? He can marry somebody? Female witcher?

        Witcher 1 lets you drink them even in combat, you are thinking witcher 2. I like the W1 approach more wiich also has you brew them manually with secondary effects

          Ah yes. My memory is mostly 'it felt more witchery in TW1/2 than 3'. I remember using Quen while drinking potions in TW1 during combat now, not sure if I actually needed to do that or it just felt 'right' to have the shield up taking no damage so he could drink it. I think I would take them before combat out of habit/role-playing

          Looking back TW1 ingredient finding, potion-making/consuming felt most witchery. Set it apart from say TES games where you might just instadrink it from the inventory during combat, very immersive.

            Witcher 1 emphasis on planning and preparation, reading up on monsters and planning how you will exploit their weaknesses and protect yourself from their abilities. Deliberate crafting instead of literally just resting with one unit of alcohol in your inventory to instantly replenish full stock of every single potion you ever crafted in the game.

            I'd honestly prefer if there was no story at all, especially if the alternative is ciri mary sue moronation. Let me play some no-name witcher just going job-to-job to make ends meet. Monster Hunter style

            Of course it won't be anything like this though, it'll just be witcher 3 copy-pasted but this time more pozzed and buggy

            Yeah I really miss that style of gameplay. I liked how ingredient gathering wasn't tedious or made you feel obligated to hoover up literally everything you came across because they were grouped together. You didn't need any one specific ingredient to make what you needed. But you also got rewarded for picking ingredients more carefully because they had subgroups which gave secondary effects if you matched them up. Potions also lasted like 8 hours so instead of making and chugging swallows every 5 mins you could gather the ingredients to just make one, drink it before you set out and then you'd be good for a while.

            I also liked combat not having multiple invincibility buttons so you couldn't just i-frame through everything and ignore crafting altogether.

        >it's in canon that cats trained men and women
        bet they'll leave out the part where the cats were blood-crazy unstable cowardly schizophrenics (since their mood mutagens were accidentally flipped) with mutations so utterly and pathetically weak that their entire school was brought to total annihilation multiple times by the equivalents of a troll's fart, and that they were almost entirely based in novigrad and were contingent on the trade routes around the region for their roaming caravan (which no matter the ending, novigrad always gets purged by the end of 3, as of triss's questline)

        it's almost as if it's canon when it suits them (hecking wymmin?!), and forgotten when the cats would genuinely struggle with basic-tier drowner contracts (which is why they turned to contracts on humans, because they are completely incapable of dealing with monsters, using potions or anything that resembles being a witcher; and was why they were disgraced by literally fricking everyone, and were the first school that the bears actively started to seek out and kill).

        a game about the cats would not be a witcher game, it'd be closer to assassins creed, except the assassins can't help themselves from killing everything in a room once they get started, and the "brotherhood" is as good as a traitors truce
        at least, a canon game, with epic cat witcher wimmins in it 🙂

          if it does take place in Kovir I think They'll have Geralt show up as a cameo coming to Kovir as a favor from Triss or if you romanced her He's living in her house. I don't think Yennefer will show up since her story is in Nilfgard as the sorceress to either Ehmyr or Ciri and tbh CDPR doesn't care about Yennefer as much as Triss since She's an Andrzej Sapkowski creation (reminder of the cuck shit she does with Geralt) while Triss was a nothing character before CDPR made the first Witcher game and let's face it nobody gave a frick about this series before the game. That's why Andrzej Sapkowski sold the rights to the game for 5k expecting nothing and was mad when it was successful and he didn't get paid he fricking hates CDPR

          before 2.0 if you gone full armor enemy smg does nothing to you on hardest dificulty but revolvers/snipers (anything with high alpha dmg on 1 bullet) 2 shot you
          balance is better, now armor depend on cyberware not homosexual clothes etc, cool perks
          missions are not linear, at least 2 story choices in most missions and many ways to gamplay them, and going full carnage mode even in missions that are designed to be "stealth" is fine and you do not miss any rewards
          yes v is kida a loser
          many main quest is boring shit like braindancing yes, they can not fix that (should be skipable)
          side activities are NOT repetitive at all wtf are you about?
          even the police "kill da street goons" are each diferent (there is some lore to it to read if you care but you can skip) , same with boxing.

    I'm sure the pure game development aspect is still there, technically, but it will be used to dress up modern political agenda pushing in fantasy clothing instead of making a good fantasy game. And it's guaranteed to sell because gamers are moronic, perpetuating the system

    Didn't Cyberpunk literally have like 2000 people working on it at one point? I'm pretty sure CDPR unironically hired every single junior-level game dev in the country of Poland.

    But it doesn't matter, because they could have a million people and it wouldn't make a difference. The only reason TW4 is in production at all is because they had to announce something when Cyberpunk launched in such a horrible state and they needed to use the only goodwill they had left from Witcher fans to not get themselves boycotted to hell. But all of the people who made TW2 and 3 memorable and successful games (in the public eye, I actually think TW3 is fricking awful) are long gone and the same reason Cyberpunk failed was because the idiots at the top thought the magic was in the company brand name, not the people working on the project and invested in making a creative piece of media.

    No one who gets hired at CDPR to work on one of these games is invested in them, they're not there to make a great Witcher game or make CDPR a competitive company like the people who scrapped tooth and nail to make TW1 and 2. It's just kids, young interns and people who need a paycheck taking whatever job they can get. They have no engagement or connection to the project, they don't care if it's managed well or not, and so it won't be.

    It'll be over-directed, under-managed, AAA slop made by committee to cash in on as much nostalgia and people's memories of TW3 (mostly, very few who played 3 ever touched 1 or 2), and it won't have any of the magic that made those first games. Think about it, the reason TW2 stood out so much is because CDPR was a scrappy little studio no one cared about, that somehow pulled out a game that swung way, way above their weight class in looks, performance, content, etc. If they make a game now, how could they possible accomplish that? How can a shit team of interns make something that punches above every other AAA studio that's actually trying?

      Unless they somehow kept it super under wraps, they didn't even decide to start development on it until CP2077 launched. And remember that game had more people working on it and was delayed for years beyond its' plans. So at best, TW4 might come out in 2027 or 28, unless they decide to make it stripped down, smaller, and way less of a project than TW2 was. And if that's the case, who exactly even wants it?

          nah making your character is shit. The Story always takes a nosedive because characters are talking to an empty void with no personality that shows no emotion. CDPR tried that with V and it's just boring. Ubisoft is running into that same problem with their shit-create-your character in AC games while everybody still wants and adores Ezio. The only game where creating your character was semi-good and wasn't dull was Shepherd in Mass Effect but everyone has the image of default shepherd in their minds when they think of Shepherd.

            The problem with having your own create a character in a narrative game is that your character never goes through the character arc. Because you stay static in your own beliefs and the game never challenges you on that belief. I don't think Game writers are smart enough to handle a dynamic character arc so that's why having a self-insert is only good in MMO games cause everything is dynamic when you are playing with others. The only single-player narrative game that pulled it off for me was Spec Ops the Line. You the player are committing genocide but you don't know that as the game unravels and reveals that by playing a shooter you are shooting and killing these people because the game objective tells you to and you as the player question yourself on why you're killing these "bad guys"

        I'm not holding out hope for the remake, but I remember the guy that created the cards talking about them, saying his regret is that he turned the sex into a collectible and this would basically coerce the player to always choose sex, if he had a choice now, he'd leave the drawings as suggestion of a sex scene, but remove the collectible aspect of them
        I don't think he's working on the remake though

    problem with witcher games is that they continue from the books when books are mediocre
    1 is a strange retelling of the books, 2 is mediocre in it's own way and 3 is a straight continuation of the saga.
    Also playing as a geralt, estabilished character while I, the player never liked ciri and I don't give a frick what happens to her, I'm supposed to deeply care and go to her rescue.
    Weakest parts of the games were also sections in a big city and both 1 and 3 insisted on half the games happening there. 4 to be good needs to actually feature being a witcher, going from village to village
    my perfect 4 would be
    >make your own MC
    >open world with mostly villages and small cities
    >book characters are episodic at best
    >small scale plot, none of that political shit I shouldn't care about
    >skyrim tier mod support from day 1
    Also 1st person camera only, I'm playing 3 right now and I feel more like watching a movie, with everything being a props rather than living world which I'm supposed to be a part of. It murders any immersion to be had. That's why CP77 feels so much better, you feel as a part of the world you can touch and interact with, not be the viewer hanging over the shoulder
    Now thinking about it only games to have 3rd person camera are movie games or mmos. There is no reason to have them in actual rpgs
