CD Projekt Red Has Started Working on a Witcher Remake


CD Projekt RED unexpectedly announced a remake of the first Witcher game (The Witcher). The game will be based on Unreal Engine 5. This project first appeared in the recently published development strategy of the company under the code name Canis Majoris.

“We are thrilled to announce that The Witcher Remake is being worked on! That’s right, the game that started it all is being rebuilt from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5. The Witcher Remake is what you might know by the codename “Canis Majoris”. It’s still early and we want to ensure that the game is created with the utmost care and attention to detail, therefore, while we’re excited to share the news with you, we want to ask you for patience as it will be a while until we start talking about this project in detail.” – the company said in a statement.

The Witcher

The studio calls the upcoming remake a “modern reimagining” of the original The Witcher, released in 2007. The project, which is being developed entirely from scratch based on the current version of the engine from Epic Games, will use a set of tools that CD Projekt RED plans to use in the new saga about the Witcher.

The game is currently in the early stages of development at Fool’s Theory, a studio specializing in role-playing projects. This team includes many experienced specialists who previously worked on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. However, CD Projekt RED still has complete creative control over the project.

The Witcher Remake’s release date and list of target platforms will be announced at a later date. Most likely, the game will be released on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X, and S.

The Witcher

“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,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD Projekt RED. “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.”
