As gamers start frothing at the mouth in anticipation for the massive The Witcher 2.0 update, set to arrive on September 29th, CD Projekt Red has started dropping hints that an expansion pack may be on the way as well as the eagerly-anticipated sequel The Witcher 3.
Jan Bartkowicz, the game’s designer and writer, has slyly observed:
We still have at least one big title ahead of us in The Witcher franchise.
…of course we’re not announcing anything. We cannot say, I cannot say – I don’t know if it’s going to be The Witcher 3 or something else that covers the story, but there’s probably going to be some releases in the future.”
This was revealed to Eurogamer, and combined with an earlier Eurogamer Expo presentation, all signs are pointing to a pretty definite maybe, with Bartkowicz already confirming that CD Projekt Red is planning on releasing “something”, assuring fans that The Witcher 2.0 is “not the last update for The Witcher 2.”

Released earlier this year for PC, The Witcher 2 is currently in the works for Xbox 360 also. When that’s released, it will include all of the 2.0 features that will go live on September 29th – and, while “additional Xbox 360 content” is planned, it’ll be released for PC gamers free of charge.
