At the end of October, the Polish studio CD Projekt RED announced a remake of the very first part of the Witcher game series, which is going to be transferred to the high-tech Unreal Engine 5 engine. Not as much is known about the updated version of The Witcher as we would like, but today the developers shared new details of the game in a published financial report.
According to the document, CD Projekt RED has been working on the remake for about a year now. Previously, it was assumed that work on the new version of The Witcher would begin only next year, when the team transfer to a new studio. Now we can safely say that at least the preparatory stage of the development of the remake has already been started.
The report also confirmed that The Witcher remake will have an open world. The game will focus on storytelling and no online additions are planned. The game is being developed by Fool’s Theory studio, led by the retired developers of the original The Witcher trilogy.
