  UPDATE: The tweet thread was later revealed to be a teaser for the announcement that Netflix and CD Projekt Red will come together to host the first ever Witcher Con event.

  Fans across The Witcher franchise have been awaiting news on a number of different and exciting projects, from feature-length anime films to the next season of the widely-successful Netflix series. Surprisingly, it appears that two corners of the franchise will be coming together.

  On social media, Netflix and Polish developer CD Projekt Red teased major news for July 9. Neither companies hinted at what the news could be, only suggesting that it involves both The Witcher video games and Netflix’s hit adaptation. Additionally, the accounts for Gwent and the upcoming mobile game, The Witcher: Monster Slayer also engaged in the thread.

  The video game trilogy ended with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, concluding Geralt of Rivia’s story. It has been rumored that a fourth instalment is in the works, with fans speculating the game could focus on Ciri, who became a witcher herself in one of the base game’s endings. This was fueled by?an interview that?The Witcher 3 principal writer Jakub Szama?ek gave, in which he appeared to tease Ciri as a playable character in future projects.

  At the time of writing, fans eagerly await major news to be announced at Netflix’s Geeked Week event for one of several projects currently in the works, including the anime tie-in film, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, which will center on Vesemir and the history of Kaer Morhen; The Witcher: Blood Origin, a prequel series set 1200 years in the Continent’s past; and of course, Season 2 of The Witcher, which will see the long-awaited return of Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan as Geralt of Rivia, Yennefer of Vengerberg and Princess Cirilla, respectively.

  Virtually all of these Witcher projects have been hindered in some way by the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Witcher Season 2 was delayed by several months, which likely delayed the release for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, which was speculated to be intended for release between the two seasons of the Netflix series.

  The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, Freya Allan as Ciri and Joey Batey as Jaskier. Season 1 is now available on Netflix.
