The Next CDPR after The Witcher 3. Will it have Character Creation?

I am wondering where CD projekt RED is taking their next game. When I first began playing The Witcher, it was on my younger brothers encouragement. I did however find Geralt of Rivia a little goofy in that game (Also the non enhanced edition), but the concept started to grow on me. Since the game was so incredibly long, i ran out of steam during my first playthrough in the swamp ch 2, but took it up half a year later and have completed it twice now.
In the Witcher 2, the concept and Geralt's looks and style had been refined, so he started to be more believeable and I enjoyed playing as that character in that game. Still do.
Now with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt being the last of the witcher Geralt games, how will our characters be defined after this game. I for one love character creation including the possibility to create your personal avatar customizing class, gender, skills, looks and starting gear. Actually for me this is THE defining trait of the Genre genre along with a good engaging story. Not elves, dwarfs, swords or in the case of SCI-FI weird guns, AI and such.
As CDPR have already stated that the game after TW3 will be Cyberpunk 2077 what will the character options be in this game and what are you guys looking forward to or have fears about? In the original CP 2020 the classes were these just to tell people who doesn't know the IP:
So guys what are your thoughts on what will happen next and what are your wishes for the next game concerning character creation and story looking beyond TW3?

I am wondering about whether they will be able to come up with a compelling story and how the character will be, since the mute character often associated with RPG's with character customization is a let down on the story perspektive. If we are going to be pigeonholed into the role of the girl from the teaser i would be severely let down.

As for Cyberpunk since we know it will have character customization. I hope we have a set name and set gender.

I hope CDPR gives this genre a chance. That's just a dream for now that they're focus on TW3 and Cyberpunk....

But i don't want anything in Witcher 3. The only thing that should be made available is different hair styles, beard (considering we saw Geralt having one in the pics.) and maybe tattoos.
I still wonder if Geralt can keep his Blue Stripes tattoo on his neck. If we didn't decide to remove it.

Thats why I look forward to hearing how CDPR will have their take on this. And I would be severely disappointed CP2077 will have a set char like in the witcher or mass effect games.
And guns!!!! we need guns. Thats the bad thing about witcher. No guns...

Mass Effect doesn't have a set protagonist.
