Looks like the days of Geralt are numbered. Having fought King-slayers and all manner of monsters through two games already, it looks like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may be his final adventure. But it’s one that developer CD Projekt RED is hoping will end the series on a high note.
There’s a strange sensation in the air. A feeling of impending DOOOOM, that lingers in the atmosphere. Australia has gone quiet, and reports are coming in that there are bundles of empty clothing everywhere in Durban. Nah, I’m just screwing with you all.
