“The Witcher 4” has not been announced yet, but fans of the franchise are itching to again walk the gaming world as Geralt of Rivia. As it is, there are already several possibilities that CD Projekt Red might explore, including new characters, new gameplay and new controls.

At this point, “The Witcher 4” is a mere theory, as CD Projekt Red has not confirmed anything about the sequel. But despite this, there are already certain aspects of the game that have been placed on the table by fans of the franchise. As Trusted Reviews has reported, one of this is new playable characters.

It is unclear if the story of Geralt has really been put to a close, and it is therefore unsure whether or not he will still make a strong appearance in the presumed sequel. But if his journey is over, it is vital that CD Projekt Red has Geralt pass the torch to someone that is worthy of his legacy. As the publication argued, Ciri is one of the possibilities.

This would make sense as her past has made her harder. She is also capable of hunting monsters and solving mysteries. Arguably more important, however, is that she can handle herself in front of hot-tempered characters. Furthermore, she has a history with some of the other characters that would open the door for interaction in “The Witcher 4.”

“The Witcher 3” had several side quests that made the entire experience more whole. However, some of these stories were a little too linear and did not leave enough impression on the player or -- it seemed -- Geralt. These types characters could leave a little less to the imagination in the upcoming sequel.

Another improvement that the game developer could make is to fix the sluggish movements in the game. The quest of Geralt was epic in “The Witcher 3,” yet it was easy to fumble over objects and find the required button prompts; the movement seemed unworthy of the greatness of the game. CD Projekt Red tried to fix these during patches, but it still never fit quite well. Hopefully “The Witcher 4” will fix this completely.

Currently, CD Projekt Red is likely busy working on its next sci-fi role playing game, “Cyberpunk 2077,” which could be why it has not mentioned much about “The Witcher 4.” Nevertheless, May 2017 will mark the two year anniversary of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” so the game developer is expected to make an announcement soon. The announcement might point to a 2020 release.
