Don’t you love it when people announce that they’ll be announcing something? I certainly don’t, which is why I try to avoid writing news items about pre-announcement announcements. In this case, though, it might actually be worthwhile.
“This case” involves CD Projekt Red, who are currently developing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, and Dark Horse Comics, who are currently publishing lots of comics. They’re teasing whatever this is as “something truly special for fans of the fantasy genre”, which means it’s unlikely to be Cyberpunk related unless that’s going in a very strange direction.
The only other clues we have are the text “There’s a mystery near the edge of the Black Forest. We’d like to invite you to fear it with us.” and a short video clip (below) showing both a few images of Geralt and a few images of comics. So… yeah, it’s almost certainly a The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comic. The Black Forest is apparently a place in the world of The Witcher, otherwise known as Caed Dhu, so that certainly fits.
I would imagine it’s probably something that leads up to the start of The Witcher 3, but I could see it being a stand-alone story. Either way, the reveal is set for the New York Comic Con, so we’ll find out more sometime between 11 October and 14 October.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
