With WitcherCon behind us, we can now stop and take inventory of everything that happened during the two-day romp. A new season of the tv show, a stylised manga and a new game are all in store for 2021.
Toss a co(i)n to your Witcher!
The CD PROJEKT RED and Netflix-produced vatt'ghern-stravanza featured many panels and announcements related to the video game franchise and the Netflix series.
WitcherCon streamed on July 9 and 10. Some of the evening's highlights include the Geralt of T-Rivia panel where creators of both video games and Netflix series went head to head while testing their knowledge of the colourful universe.
Later on, in Memories From the Path, developers from CD PROJEKT RED took a stroll down memory lane, reminisced about the creation of the games and how their stories have been brought to life over the years.
You can watch the two WitcherCon streams right here:

- The Witcher: Ronin
The weekend event didn't bring any news about CD PROJEKT RED's other games but the fans did get a glimpse into the upcoming comic book: The Witcher: Ronin.
Imagined a stylised manga, the book will tell an ancient-Japanese-inspired tale that casts Geralt as a monster-slaying Ronin on the hunt of the mythical Yuki-Onna - the Lady of Snow.
The comic book will have a hardback collector's version which will be coming soon to Kickstarter.
- The Witcher: Monster Slayer AR RPG
Spokko presented some new footage from their upcoming AR RPG. The Witcher: Monster Slayer is coming to iOS and Android for free on July 21.

Netflix' The Witcher will kick off its second season on December 17, 2021, and the brand-new The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf anime will start airing on August 23.
