Two Witcher spin-off games, as well as the new trilogy, are on the way.

So much Witcher is on the way.

CD Projekt Red is a busy bunny. The studio has presented an Avengers roadmap for its forthcoming game releases, and there are a lot of them. We now know that there will be a full Cyberpunk 2077 sequel (opens in new tab), in addition to a new Witcher game trilogy (opens in new tab), but that’s not all. CD Projekt also disclosed two new Witcher-inspired games that won’t be part of the current Geralt storyline.

Canis Majoris and Sirius are being developed by studios in addition to the main CD Projekt Red team. Sirius will be developed by Molasses Flood, a studio acquired by CD Projekt, and will take place within the world of The Witcher. “It will differ from our previous productions, offering multiplayer gameplay on top of a single-player experience including a campaign with quests and a story,” says the tweet announcing Sirius.

Canis Majoris it seems to be more in line with the RPGs set in The Witcher universe that CD Dieser Red has publicly recorded. According to the Twitter description, it will be “a Dark souls game, separate from the new Dark Souls saga starting with Apollo” and “will be developed by an outer studio led by developers who have worked on prior Witcher games.”

That’s all we have for the time being those projects. Though it seems that the new Witcher trilogy is in some way connected to the events of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Canis Majoris could be set in a different time period or even be the story of other Witchers entirely. Geralt’s story is only a tiny portion of what Witchers have gotten up to throughout the world’s history. There are very few Witchers left by the time we meet him in The Witcher 3.

It might be time to look into the past before the Witchers’ downfall and see what life was like when they were just becoming a regular part of the continent’s society. Being a member of the first Witchers would be just as thrilling as being among the last.
