The Witcher Remake Seems to Follow W3 Remastered Version

If the first Witcher title was too straightforward for you, this news might make you go back to it at some point.

According to the latest information from the developers at CD Project RED, they are already working on a The Witcher Remake

While many are eagerly awaiting the release of The Witcher 3 Remastered on December 14, 2022, a new announcement that the developers revealed during a presentation is now causing excitement again.


More open world for The Witcher Remake?

While the first The Witcher from 2007 is still very famous, CD Projekt RED now wants to release a remake. This is supposed to bring the adventures of Geralt of Rivia into a more open game world, thus breaking with some linear boundaries. The respective slide of the said presentation can be seen below.

We are looking at a slide from the developer's CD Project RED. The slide shows a conflagration that almost completely takes up the frame. In front of it, we see the title "The Witcher Remake" in the upper half of the frame in the typical font of the game with capital letters. In the lower half of the frame, the text "Codename: Canis Majoris" is written in red capital letters against a black background. Below that is a yellow horizontal bar with the following text in black letters: "Story-driven, singleplayer open-world RPG - a modern reimagining of 2007's The Witcher.

The shown slide from the Q3 investor presentation only displays the logo and some more information bits below it. We can read “open-world RPG” and “story-driven”, which could speak for a remake with some significant changes to the gameplay. A bit more freedom for us players is always welcome! However, it seems that the remake is still in a very early stage, and a release could still be far away.

In the first installment of the series, there were already large environments. Players were able to explore, unlock upgrades and kill beasts. But the story as a whole was relatively linear, according to some gamers. So that might change in the future, and we can enjoy the popular game with a new degree of freedom. Let’s go even further as Geralt into this beautiful universe!

When exactly the Witcher Remake is supposed to get released is not yet clear. But it seems that the release will take place after The Witcher 4, which is also in development. We will keep you posted via this article.

The cover of The Witcher 3 Remastered shows the sorcerer Gerald in chain armor and a large sword on his back in the center in a semi-close-up shot as he gloomily stares at us as the viewer. He has silver hair tied in a braid and orange glowing eyes. With his right hand, he is drawing a sword from its scabbard. In front of him, in the center and in the lower half of the image, is the logo of the third installment in typical white lettering: "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt". Below that, in front of a red bar, is the text "Free Next-Gen Update" in white capital letters. Below that is the text "Coming December 14trh 2022 in white capital letters. In the background, a snowy mountain range can be seen along with snow-covered forests. An icy blizzard covers the image's background extensively with white snow. Now The Witcher Remake is also to be released.
