The Witcher 4 is definitely happening, but it's likely still quite far away.

The Witcher 4: what we know about the "new saga"

When is The Witcher 4's release date?

There isn't a release date, or even release year yet. The Witcher 4 was first confirmed in March 2022, with CDPR saying "no further details regarding the game—such as a development time frame or release date—are available." 

Will it be an Epic Games Store exclusive?

Nope, or at least CDPR says that it's "not planning on making the game exclusive to one storefront." The studio also owns GOG, so it would be odd if The Witcher 4 weren't available there.

Co-founder Marcin Iwinski has stated CDPR sees the first three games as a standalone trilogy. "The Witcher was designed as a trilogy and a trilogy cannot have a fourth part, can it?" So is looks like the number 4 is out.
