CD Projekt Red announced The Witcher Remake is in development at Polish studio Fool’s Theory, and the game utilizes Unreal Engine 5.
Originally codenamed Canis Majoris, The Witcher Remake is in the early stages of development. CD Projekt Red is providing full creative supervision for the remake. More details will be shared once the development team makes further progress.
“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.”
