The Witcher 3 "last part of the trilogy," not of the franchise

CD Projekt RED's Adam Badowski said that The Witcher 3 represented the 'last Witcher game', but CEO Adam Kicinski clarifies that to mean "the end of Geralt's saga," and not the franchise.

In fact it "will continue" beyond The Witcher 3, teased Kicinski. This echoes similar action by BioWare who are continuing Mass Effect beyond the trilogy of Commander Shephard.

Arguably this applies to Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed franchise now that main character Desmond Miles is no longer in the spotlight. It's something about the number three.

“This is the last part of the trilogy, in which there will be a great finale of the story,” Kicinski says. “However, this doesn’t mean the end of franchise. The franchise will continue.” Recently CD Projekt RED announced The Witcher 3 and revealed it's an entirely open world affair, apparently 20% larger than Bethesda's Skyrim.

The Witcher 3 releases on PC in 2014.

Sounds awfully like BioWare's plans for the "Mass Effect" franchise.

This is CD Projekt hero,not EA,these are the guys who supported their games long after release and gave all dlc away for free,not to mention the witcher games have been benchmarks in rpgs.

Hmm. While I support Witcher 3 being the end of the trilogy... Geralt IS The Witcher of the title, as he is in all the books. If they did a Witcher game without him it'd be a spin-off rather than a sequel.

As I say, despite this being CDProjektRED and not EA, it sounds awfully like "ME".
