CD PROJEKT RED (hereinafter referred to as CDPR) announced in its Q3 2022 earnings report that ‘The Witcher Remake’ currently under development will be completed as a story-driven single-player open world RPG.
The Witcher Remake is a game that remakes the action RPG ‘The Witcher’ released by CDPR in 2007 with modern technology. Fool’s Theory, a Polish game studio with The Witcher series veterans, uses Unreal Engine 5 to develop.
Since The Witcher was a game in which branching was selected and quests progressed according to the story within a limited area, if The Witcher Remake is completed in an open world format as announced by CDPR, a game with more freedom and unique fun can be created.
In particular, CDPR has had a great success with the open world action RPG ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’, so if The Witcher Remake shows a similar level of perfection, it will not stop at a simple remake game and will be able to receive good reviews.
However, CDPR didn’t reveal more details about The Witcher Remake this time around, so it’s only time to tell if it’ll actually be a good game.
