The Witcher Remake Officially Announced By CD Projekt Red

It is reportedly being built in the highly-famed Unreal Engine 5 engine.

CD Projekt Red nailed the roleplaying action formula with its formidable The Witcher series. The main series features a total of three games, and all of them have received critical acclaim for their stellar storyline amalgamated with action-packed gameplay. The Witcher, in particular, has aged like fine cheese.

The first installment defined new standards in the industry after release and has enjoyed a lofty shelf life. The nostalgia still radiates from The Witcher: Enhanced Edition and is often visited by users craving a remake to enjoy it with a modern twist. The team has recently confirmed the alluring prospect on its Twitter handle.

Major Takeaway:

  • The Witcher remake has been officially confirmed to be in development through a collaboration between CD Projekt Red and Fool’s Theory.
  • The highly-anticipated remake is being developed in Unreal Engine 5.
  • There are no precise details, and the developers have asked the community to exercise patience.
  • The team is seeking to spend a long time in development to make sure the remake lives up to expectations.

CD Projekt Red has respected the community’s wishes and finally confirmed The Witcher remake. It is in very early development and reportedly being brewed by the team and Fool’s Theory. The remake is codenamed “Canis Majoris” and is being crafted in none other than Unreal Engine 5. The news was announced via Twitter Handle.

As per the developers, the game will take a long time to brew to perfection for a worthy remake of the original popular entry. CD Projekt Red has requested the gamers to be patient until more details can be revealed about the project since the title is in very skeletal stages and might require years of hefty development.

The official webpage for The Witcher Remake reveals more details about the collaboration and the project. Fool’s Theory primarily consists of veteran developers that worked on the original The Witcher series, and the coaction will prove to be very beneficial to the remake. 

The Head of CD Projekt Red, Adam Badowski, cited, “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.

Moreover, Adam also comments on the cooperation with Fool’s Theory, “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.”

As per Adam, the wait will be worth it, and more particulars will be shared in the future, but not anytime soon. He continued, “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.”
