No further details were announced, but it’s likely that the event will reveal new details on The Witcher season 2, which entered production in the UK last year ahead of a planned release in 2021.
Key players from season one will return for season two, including monster hunter Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Cholatra), princess Ciri (Freya Allan) and Jaskier (Joey Batey).
Joining the cast are Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones) as Nivellen, Yasen Atour (Young Wallander) as Coen, Agnes Bjorn (Monster) as Vereena, Thue Ersted Rasmussen (Fast and Furious 9) as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross (The Danish Girl) as Lydia and Mecia Simson as Francesca.
Netflix is also making an anime film called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, as well as prequel series Blood Origin. Netflix has confirmed plans to shoot Blood Origin in the UK but hasn’t announced when the series will be released.
The next-gen edition of The Witcher 3 will be released as a standalone purchase for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5, and as a free update for players who already own the game on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The PS5 and Xbox Series X/S port is being developed externally by Saber Interactive, the studio behind The Witcher 3’s Nintendo Switch port, which was acquired by THQ Nordic parent Embracer earlier this year.
