The Witcher Voice Actor Wants to Work on Cyberpunk 2077
Geralt of Rivia voice actor, Doug Cockle, told VG247 during EGX 2017 that although he “knows nothing about The Witcher 4,” he wants to be involved in Cyberpunk 2077 as he really enjoys working with CD Projekt RED.
What I have discussed is the idea of me being involved somehow. Whether that’s a major part or just an easter egg. I hope so, I really enjoy working with them. But I haven’t had significant contact. We have jokingly talked about it.
Cockle mentioned that the developer is focused on Cyberpunk 2077 right now – something CD Projekt RED has reiterated before when asked about developing another game in The Witcher series.
As for his role as Geralt, Cockle said that it’s “really cool” to be a part of something that long and that it has been a “great experience” watching the character develop over time. He also talked a bit about Geralt’s famous sex scenes in the series:
It’s a bit like being caught masturbating by your mom. But it’s kind of fun. It can be really challenging, you’re naturally embarrassed. You’re having to show whoever’s in the booth that side of your personality.
CD Projekt RED recently celebrated The Witcher‘s 10th anniversary, and released a short video that shows Geralt reminiscing the past.
