The Witcher: Multiplayer game set in Witcher universe could be coming

The Witcher 4

A multiplayer Witcher game may well be in the works, as per IGN.

The Molasses Flood studio is owned by CD Projekt Red, the developers of the wildly successful Witcher trilogy, and they are currently looking to hire a multiplayer designer.

They are said to be looking for the developer to work on a game that could well be set in the Witcher universe.

The Molasses Flood has so far developed a variety of indie games, including Drake Hollow and Flame in the Flood, but the studio was bought out by CDPR in October of 2021.

That acquisition came about as CDPR wanted them to work on an “ambitious project” that was based on one of their IPs that already exists.

There was a suggestion at the time that they could well work on a further game within the Cyberpunk 2077 universe but it now appears that it will be a Witcher game.

Gamerant reports that CD Projekt Red confirmed earlier this year that they would be using the Unreal Engine for any new Witcher games in the coming months; they have previously used their REDengine 4 engine that they themselves created.

Witcher 3

They further report that the job listing suggests it will be a systems-heavy action game with an emphasis on multiplayer combat. Other listings hint at a levelling system and non-player enemies, along with armed and unarmed combat.

As a result, it makes sense that this would be a Witcher game, as opposed to a game in the Cyberpunk world.

There hasn’t been a Witcher game since The Witcher 3 released in 2015, so we’ve gone seven years without a further game.

It remains to be seen if a multiplayer Witcher game will be a standalone experience or an addition to an eventual Witcher 4. We’ll let you know as and when we get more information.
