We all know the witcher 3 had 81 million and I remember reading long time ago that Witcher 1 had the budget of about less than 10 million and Witcher 2 about 20 million but cant seem to find any confirmation in the internet today.

CD Projekt proved that they can make stories and characters better and more interesting than in books look HoS story for example Olgierd as a character is amazing and many more that are not from the books.

Yes which is why i pointed out on HoS story because is not related to the books in any way and they have proven that they are capable of creating amazing characters and stories on their own. Besides stories of all games are not book adaptations they are stories of their own written by cd projekt. That is why I believe in CD Projekt they and only few other developers like Hideo Kojima can deliver such quality.sv3672;n9164120 said:A third expansion has been more or less ruled out by CDPR, but I agree that a fresh start with new characters would be ideal if the developers have the talent and are willing to take some risks.

This information (that W3 will be the end for Geralt) comes from CDPR interviews, but that's it, in the game story there is no such thing.
And the fans won't have a problem with it either, I think.
