The beauty of a story is that it has an end. Nothing is worse that a milked out, unending story. Geralt's story makes no sense and has no urgency if there is no purpose. It has to end sometime and they did it wonderfully.I have just read the declarations of Mr. Marcin Iwinski saying that there won't be more expansions for TW· and there won't be a TW4 anytime soon.
Well, I like CD Projekt Red. I really do. I think they do great games and treat their clients right, better than other companies, but... I'm a fan of Geralt of Rivia, not a fan of CD Projekt Red. I would buy any game of Geralt of Rivia made by other developers, but I will not buy any game of CD Projeckt just becauste it is made by CD Projekt.
It seems that CD Projekt Red has abandoned Geralt´s world and is working in Cyberpunk. Well, I´m not interested in Cyberpunk. Actually, I feel kind of antipathy for that game knowing is the responsible of the end of Geralt´s saga, so I will not buy it and this is kind of a question of principles.
After the release of Blood and Wine, I will stop being a client of CD Projekt Red. I'm afraid the company will not see more money from me, and I just want to say "good bye".
It has been a great ride through three amazing games of Geralt, but if Geralt´s path ends here, my path as a client of CD Projetk Red ends too.
What Troldierman said.As much as I want another Witcher game and definitely Geralt as its protagonist, I also don't want this series become as stale and bland as Assassin's Creed. I think it's the right time for CDPR to explore different settings and ideas. But I'm sure they will come back to this beloved medieval world at some point when they feel it's right.
What would a real ending have been then that is not like one of the already existing ones ? And after these endings (and also Ciri's, Radovid's, etc.), it would also be rather difficult to continue the story while respecting the choices made in TW3.That´s not a proper way to ending a story. Geralt dies or Geralt is happy ever after with Triss or Yennefer, or Geralt continues killing monsters alone... That´s not a real ending, is just "We, CDProjetk, are tired of Geralt, we are going to retire him".
Fairy tails end like that: the prince and the princess get married, and they live happy ever after. This kind of ending implies that the prince and the princess don't do a single interesting thing from the marriage to their deaths. You think that´s kind of ending a proper ending for Geralt´s path? Do you think that a charactar as Geralt (or Triss, Yennefer, the other sorceresses, etc. are just going to retire and live happy ever after? There is no beauty in this kind of ending, It closes the story in faux. It´s a crappy ending, actually. Again, this ending is just send a messaje: "We, CDProjetk, are tired of The Witcher and we want to forget it"What would a real ending have been then that is not like one of the already existing ones ? And after these endings (and also Ciri's, Radovid's, etc.), it would also be rather difficult to continue the story while respecting the choices made in TW3.
That is left to the player's imagination, but it would not be worth making another game only to show Geralt's "family life". Let alone one that takes into account all the possible endings of Witcher 3. If you do not like these "happy endings", there are still two other ones to choose from as well.Do you think that a charactar as Geralt (or Triss, Yennefer, the other sorceresses, etc. are just going to retire and live happy ever after?
First, I just need to say that I love medieval histories. No matter if those are movies, books, animes, comics or tv series, that always has been my favorite fiction genre. The Lord of the Rings movies being the biggest guilty for that for me. That said, It is also true that I always has found difficult to find a "ONE" game to rule all... I mean..., to really show all the potencial I see on the genre.I'm rather curious to know what Witcher fans in particular think about the studio's shift to Cyberpunk.
Geralt would be lost in such a world .....Whoa, guys, you all forgot you will probably be able to:
1. Start Cyberpunk 2077
2. Enter the character creator
3. Make your character look exactly like Geralt
4. Play as Geralt in the dystopian, rainy streets of Night City
So, yeah, not all is lost!
This.but I have faith in CDPR that they will deliver something awesome again.
You admit that you like CDPR view of geralt and it is better then the game, this statement say a lot because it show you the quality of the writing CDPR can produce.What's special in Geralt, Triss, Yennefer, Dandelion, Vesemir, Phillipha and the other characters? Simple: they are extremely charismatic characters from a good (not great, but good) literary saga. A lot of us, (even, as in my case, not being big fan of Sapkowsky), were fond of the characters long time ago. Then, we met them in the games and they were even better than in books. Just true love. And that´s something that thing of Ciberpunk whatever it is, will never have. Character creator? Really? Really CD Projekt thinks that a generic character beats a character like Geralt? Geralt is, at least, as charismatic as Han Solo and as complex as Tyrion Lannister. And CD Project thinks that a generic character generated by a character creator is better?
I hope that CDPR will not lose the franchise to other company, first because they can create stories of other characters in the world, and second because i don't want that the witcher franchise will lose its charm and geralt will turn into something else. until today i can't comprehend the changes Lara Croft received, her character is so different then what it was in the older games, the stories are so weak, even the story of angle of darkness with all of its plot holes is better then the current one. I don't want something like this to happen to geralt. Artistic freedom is a nice excuse and it is always valid.I would buy any game of Geralt of Rivia made by other developers
