We all knew that CD Projekt RED was working on the next installment in the Witcher franchise, as well as the upcoming expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, however in an investor presentation the company showed off much of the roadmap of the studio's future.

In all, five games were announced today, using codenames for each. Three new titles in the Witcher series, PolarisCanis Majoris and Sirius look to bring the IP to players in different ways. Polaris, for its part, is the start of a brand new Witcher game trilogy, which CDPR hopes will be releasing the full trilogy over a six-year span.

Canis Majoris is described as a "full-fledged Witcher game," though it is separate from the trilogy being created with the Polaris codename. This title is being worked on by an external studio with many Witcher 3 vets, though CDPR stopped short of saying just who that would be. Sirius did get a studio namedropped, as it's an upcoming title in the universe of The Witcher being developed by The Molasses Flood. CDPR admits that this will feature multiplayer, as well as a single-player gameplay experience.

Cyberpunk is getting in on the action too, with Orion, a full title set in the universe helmed by a new US-based CDPR studio. 

Finally, Hadar is an upcoming new IP from CD Projekt RED, though no details were really detailed other than it's currently in the early stages of creative development of the IP. As a result, we don't have any firm details on the type of setting Hadar is based within, or even the type of game being created.

The company doubled down on their multiplayer vision for the future as well in a separate tweet showing Geralt and Ciri facing off with the caption they are "introducing multiplayer to most of our new games to enrich the single-player experience."
