How can I watch WitcherCon?
WitcherCon will air on CD Projekt Red’s Twitch and YouTube channels, as well as Netflix’s Twitch and YouTube channels. Closer to event we’ll embed the stream in here directly for quicker viewing.
What to expect from WitcherCon
Let’s get one thing quickly out the way – the event page explicitly states that “no new Witcher game will be announced”, so that is not on the cards.
Nonetheless, there’s still plenty of Witcher news to get excited about, especially for film and TV fans. Firstly, Netflix released a short teaser of season 2 of the Netflix series during Geeked Week – so perhaps we’ll be getting a full trailer at WitcherCon. We may even get a possible release date – the show is supposed to air sometime this year.
There may also be news about other Netflix Witcher projects such as Nightmare of the Wolf and Blood Origins, as well new merchandise reveals.
There’s now a teaser trailer for the event, which includes a segment of ‘Toss a coin to your Witcher’, as well as Geralt’s famous humming noise:

News aside, there will also be behind-the-scenes footage and interviews related to the shows and games, and more information about the lore and worlds in which the stories take place.
The site states that a full schedule will be revealed soon, so we’ll have a better idea of what is on the way then.
