Is 5 new Witcher games too many Witcher games?

CD Projekt unceremoniously announced this week that there are three – no, four – no, five? – new Witcher games in development, alongside a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077. Big Geralt is back.

Or at least witching is. We don’t know if any of CD Projekt’s upcoming games will star or guest-star Geralt of Rivia, although the company has said its next big role-playing game won’t be Geralt’s story. We now know this game, which we tentatively call The witcher 4, will be the beginning of a “new triple-A RPG trilogy”. CD Projekt codenamed this game Polaris. Will there be Ciri or a whole new cast of characters? We do not know it.
