Speculation Surfaces: Upcoming Witcher Game to Feature Co-Op Playability
CD Projekt Red, the developer behind the successful Witcher franchise, is reportedly working on a new game within the Witcher universe, Codename Sirius, that is expected to feature co-op multiplayer. This information was revealed through recent job listings posted on Reddit by Awkward96, which suggest that Sirius will offer “co-op, PvE, a class system, multiple game modes, and social activities.” This news has sparked excitement among Witcher fans who have been eagerly awaiting the next instalment in the franchise.
Sirius is one of several Witcher projects that CD Projekt Red has in development, following the crash and subsequent revival of Cyberpunk 2077. The Witcher franchise, based on the world of Andrzej Sapkowski, culminated with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which provided a conclusion to Geralt of Rivia’s journey. Since then, CD Projekt Red has released Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, a critically acclaimed niche game, and Cyberpunk 2077, an open-world shooter that faced a commercial disaster but has since seen its reputation recover with the help of a universally adored anime adaptation.
