CD Projekt RED confirms that the medallion in the first image of the new The Witcher game is not a wolf or a cat, but a lynx, opening a new uncharted path in the saga.
This week CD Projekt RED announced that they are working on a Witcher game, but we are left with more questions than answers. After all, that the Polish studio was working on a new game in the saga was something else that was more than confirmed… but, as far as we know, It’s not about The Witcher 4.
This new game has been described as “the beginning of a new saga”, and only one image has been seen with a medallion half buried in the snow. A medallion that does not belong to the wolf, such as Geralt of Rivia’s, but to a lynx.
CD Projekt RED has wanted to clear up the doubt, perhaps to avoid making us crazy theories. This new medallion symbolizes a lynx, so would belong to the School of the Lynx of sorcerers…something that, however, does not exist in The Witcher canon, neither in the games nor in the books.
“Some mysteries shouldn’t be so mysterious. I can confirm that the medallion is, in fact, a lynx“, declared Robert Malinowski, global communication director of CD Projekt RED, to Eurogamer.
This opens a new direction in the totally unexplored saga. In The Witcher canon there is various schools of witches: Geralt belongs to the wolf, but there are also viper, bear, griffin, manticore and cat.
Precisely, Ciri’s connection with the Cat Schoolas described in the novel The Lady of the Lake, the fifth in the literary saga, sparked theories about the possible plot of the game and the role of Ciri instead of Geralt.
But now we have confirmation that this is not a cat medallion, but a lynx, something that does not exist in the saga… but yes in fictional fann: Founded by Lambert, Keira, and other witches from the School of the Wolf after the events of The Witcher 3.
These are the best tablets to watch movies and series
If you often watch series when traveling or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.
Will the new Witcher game take up this idea? Perhaps what worries the fans the most is if Geralt will be the protagonist again, although this makes us suspect that it would be another. Ciri? Someone completely new, created by the player himself?
The questions will surely remain unanswered for years, as this is a long-term project that CD Projekt RED performs on Unreal Engine 5Epic Games’ new engine that he’s also working on, ditching REDengine (which should smooth out the technical side of the game and not repeat the bumpy launch of Cyberpunk 2077).
