WitcherCon Schedule Announced by Netflix and CD Projekt Red

Netflix and CD Projekt Red have officially announced the schedule for WitcherCon, the upcoming virtual fan event set to take place on July 9th. The two companies previously teased big reveals for the event, and while it is known that no new Witcher video games will be announced, just about everything else is seemingly on the docket. And there are plenty of other Witcher projects in the works that the two could be set to share just about anything from.

More specifically, it seems like we can expect to learn more about the upcoming Season 2 of Netflix's The Witcher in addition to the live-action prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin. There is also the anime feature, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, that relatively little is known about as of yet. The one almost-certain inclusion will be the first full trailer for The Witcher Season 2 while everything else just seems like it is a possibility.

Here's the full panel schedule for WitcherCon, straight from Netflix:
