The upcoming The Witcher remake has been made known to us all. The legendary Geralt of Rivia character made his gaming debut with this franchise. Because the port to consoles was scrapped, console owners could not experience this portion of their journey. The sequel was released for consoles, but solely for Xbox 360, which means that the third film in the series was released for PlayStation consoles. The person who always stood behind Geralt had been there. Actor Doug Cockle is pictured there.
Although you might not be familiar with Doug Cockle’s name, you will know him from his portrayal of Geralt. He provided the voices for all the video games as well as the cameos. Therefore, he added his Geralt to the characters in Soul Calibur 6 and Monster Hunter World in addition to the three key CD Projekt Red games. Some wondered if the voices would be redone. It is a topic discussed with him by Eurogamer.
What Doug Cockle Said
The man behind Geralt’s voice knows little about the remake. He said he knows about as much as us as he’s not even heard anything from CD Projekt Red. This is what he had to say.
I’d be there in an instant if CDPR did phone, but it hasn’t rung yet.
I know as much as you do about this at the moment. All I know is that CD Projekt Red has announced that they’re going to remake Witcher 1 in Unreal Engine 5, and that’s what I know. So I don’t know if they’re going to bring me back in to do re-recording of the dialogue, I don’t know if they’re going to use dialogue from Witcher 1 as it exists. I don’t know.
So it seems if they come calling they will get a resounding yes. If not, it won’t be the first time Geralt has changed as the Netflix show is replacing Henry Cavill with Liam Hemsworth. In the meantime we have the upgraded version of The Witcher 3 to look forward to. That’s scheduled to launch next month.
