Today, CD PROJEKT RED revealed that The Witcher Remake is currently in development. This news coincides with the initial Witcher game’s 15th anniversary of release.
Previously referred to by the codename “Canis Majoris” The Witcher remake will be a modern reimagining of the original Witcher title that was released in 2007. The project is now in its early phases of development at Fool’s Theory, a development studio that specializes in role-playing games. The group includes many seasoned programmers who have experience with The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and CD PROJEKT RED is fully in charge of artistic direction.
Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD PROJEKT RED spoke today about the project:
“The Witcher is where it all started for us, for CD PROJEKT RED. It was the first game we made, ever, and it was a big moment for us then. Going back to this place and remaking the game for the next generation of gamers to experience it feels just as big, if not bigger. Collaborating with Fool’s Theory on the project is just as exciting, as some of the people there have been previously involved in The Witcher games. They know the source material well, they know how much gamers have been looking forward to seeing the remake happen, and they know how to make incredible and ambitious games. And although it will take some time before we’re ready to share more about and from the game, I know it’ll be worth the wait.”Adam Badowski
It’s going to be some time before this remake will be in the hands of gamers as CD currently has its hands full with other projects. This includes there ongoing work they are putting into the Come Back Game of The Year Cyber Punk 2077.
