In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the first Witcher game’s release, CD PROJEKT RED just announced a full-blown The Witcher Remake is currently in the works. The remake will be a modern reimagining of 2007’s The Witcher and will be built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 5 technology. It will also utilize the toolset CDPR is creating for the new Witcher saga.
The project is currently in the early stages of development at Fool’s Theory — a game development studio specializing in role-playing games.
“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,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD PROJEKT RED.
The team will also employ numerous veteran developers who previously worked on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and CD PROJEKT RED is providing full creative supervision.
“I am very happy that my professional paths have crossed again with fellow developers from the time of working together on The Witcher 2 and The Witcher 3. Especially when it’s a remake of a project that is so close to our hearts. We are excited to join forces with CD PROJEKT RED, and our goal is to give players another great game from the iconic Witcher series,” said Jakub Rokosz, CEO, Fool’s Theory. “
