The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt principal writer Jakub Szamałek in a recent Q&A was asked if he would consider having Ciri as the lead character in The Witcher 4. Szamałek did say he regrets not exploring more of Ciri’s past in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
"I regret we didn’t get to explore Ciri’s past a bit more," he said. "She’s such an amazingly rich and complex character.
"Due to obvious reasons – well, she’s pretty much gone for two thirds of the game – she didn’t get quite as much screen time as we writers would have liked. But hey, maybe it’s something we’ll get to get back to in the future."
