The Witcher universe is getting a board game called The Witcher: Old World in April 2022. CD Projekt Red is making the project in cooperation with publishing company Go On Board and Łukasz Woźniak, who authored the Valhalla and Titans board games. The game gathers groups of two-to-five players to take on the role of witchers “long before” Geralt has even come into the picture. You can take a look at the game’s logo and art in the tweet below.
The Witcher: Old World board game is coming!
Created in cooperation with GO ON BOARD, the game will ask players to take on a role of witcher adepts and explore the monster-infested Continent from times long before Geralt of Rivia.

More details on The Witcher: Old World were shared on the franchise’s website, where a brief description of the board game is posted:
Players take on a role of professional monster slayers who recently completed their brutal training in one of the witcher schools: School of Wolf, Viper, Cat, Bear or Griffin. On their adventures across the Continent, young witchers will face difficult choices, take on contracts, battle monsters — and perhaps find themselves brawling with another witcher in order to defend their school’s honor!
A Kickstarter campaign for The Witcher: Old World is set to start in May 2021, giving those interested an opportunity to be more involved with the game’s funding. English and Polish versions have already been confirmed, with more languages currently being negotiated.
Meanwhile, Netflix is currently working on continuing Geralt’s story with The Witcher season 2 (which received some first images late last year), and there is The Witcher: Blood Origins to look forward to as well. For video game fans, CD Projekt Red revealed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be getting PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S versions sometime in the future, though CD Projekt was recently the victim of a sweeping cyber attack.
