The Witcher Franchise Continues to Expand: New Book Delayed in France and Exciting News about Project Sirius
Even as fans eagerly anticipate the continuation of The Witcher franchise, there is both good and disappointing news to share. Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, the original creator of The Witcher series, recently made a stunning announcement about a new book for the series. However, there’s a slight delay in its release for fans in France.
Netflix, the streaming giant, continues to invest in The Witcher’s success, greenlighting multiple new projects. Among them is the highly anticipated fourth season of The Witcher, which unfortunately will not feature Henry Cavill in the cast. Additionally, a new animated TV series called Sirens of the Deep, inspired by Sapkowski’s short story “A Little Sacrifice,” will soon go into production. These projects are a testament to Netflix’s belief in the enduring popularity of the franchise.
But what about Sapkowski’s new book? Fortunately, the promise will be fulfilled, though with a small delay. The Polish version of the book is set to release at the end of 2024, as announced. However, fans in other countries, including France, will have to wait until early 2025 due to translation requirements. It’s only a few months’ difference, and the wait is sure to be worth it for loyal fans.
In the gaming realm, CD Projekt Red, the studio behind The Witcher game series, is hard at work on their next major project, Project Sirius. This multiplayer co-op player-versus-environment (PvE) game set in The Witcher universe was rebooted earlier this year for a stronger concept. Just recently, a member of The Molasse Flood, the studio working on Project Sirius, revealed that the game will be an open world, promising vast environments and a wide range of gameplay systems.
While details are still limited, this revelation has set the gaming community abuzz with excitement. The prospect of exploring an open world set in The Witcher universe holds incredible potential for players to immerse themselves in the rich lore and thrilling adventures of the series.
As The Witcher franchise continues to expand across different mediums, fans can look forward to more captivating stories, both in literature and gaming. Whether it’s the upcoming book or the ambitious Project Sirius, there are countless reasons for fans to stay enchanted by the world of The Witcher.
