CD PROJEKT RED and Netflix have revealed details about the upcoming Witchercon. This is the first time that The Witcher has received such love under one event. Hopefully, there will be not just some fun conversations but a ton of revelations for The Witcher as a multi-platformed franchise. Although it has been stated by CD PROJEKT RED that there will be no announcements about Witcher videogames.
This is a shame but I can understand the thought process of tempering expectations. The main reason obviously coming after the disaster that was Cyberpunk 2077. Now check out what the team has in store for us below with their schedule:
The Witcher Season 2: Deck of Destiny

Tales from the White Wolf: A Spotlight Conversation with Henry Cavill, hosted by Josh Horowitz
To close out WitcherCon, fans will hear from Geralt of Rivia himself, Henry Cavill, who will sit down with moderator Josh Horowitz (MTV & Comedy Central host) for an in-depth conversation about fantasy, destiny, and the wider Witcher Universe. The White Wolf may even have a surprise or two in store…
All of this sounds fantastic. I’m hoping to see a lot of trailers and footage that showcases the upcoming projects that have been in production. My particular potential highlight is potentially seeing the animated adventures of Vesemir. After all, in the books, he does a lot of very cool things and his main occupation as a Witcher is fascinating, though I won’t go into spoilers here myself.
Witchercon looks set to be a lot of fun. So much so that we may do our own watch along event.
