There's no escaping The Witcher these days, and CD Project Red just made it harder with the announcement of The Witcher: Monster Slayer, an augmented reality game coming to mobile soon.

Now, CDPR didn't go into any details in the trailer other than giving mobile players a heads-up for The Witcher: Monster Slayer. They didn't specify platforms either, so it's safe to assume both iOS and Android are covered. 

There's very little info to go by at the moment, and although the website is up - it too just says the game is coming soon. 

What we do know is that the team behind The Witcher: Monster Slayer is Spokko, Polish mobile game developer whom CDPR snapped up back in 2018. CDPR didn't have any luck with excursions onto the mobile market, so getting mobile specialists to do it made sense.

"They approached us with an interesting idea based on one of our brands – an idea we decided to invest in", CDPR said at the time, insisting that Spokko's vision involves "an entirely novel creative angle".

While they didn't specifically state which IP that was, everyone pretty much knew it's Geralt, but we didn't know CDPR will be going the way of Pokemon GO. 

Of course, that's just a comparison based on the AR component, because we're not sure of the exact mechanics and specifics of The Witcher: Monster Slayer.

As you can see in the gameplay trailer, CDPR and Spokko packed The Witcher: Monster Slayer to the brim with monsters, and some of them are rendered pretty impressively. The game will not only be solely about slaying monsters, as there are quests involved, but more on that when the dev goes into nitty-gritty details.
