The two companies have both famously worked with Andrzej Sapkowski's books to create a show and a game series, and now they've come together to celebrate all things Geralt-related with WitcherCon. The online celebration will happen on July 9 on Netflix itself, and we're not exactly sure what we'll be seeing at the con however, it won't be a new Witcher game reveal.

"In case you're wondering, no new Witcher game will be announced at WitcherCon, but there are still lots of reasons to tune in! Look out for the full schedule reveal coming soon!"
It's a shame that we're not going to hear about a new Witcher game, but it certainly makes sense - CDPR has to focus on its newest release Cyberpunk 2077. Everyone remembers the messy launch of the game, from getting pulled from PlayStation storefronts to the glitchy police force. The developers obviously have a priority in making sure that the game has reached its full potential before moving on.
