The Witcher Remake artwork for a recreation of the classic game

[Update]: The Witcher 3's next gen update is coming to PC and consoles on December 14, 2022 alongside a free DLC based on the Netflix TV show.

As a part of a recent announcement, CD Projekt Red revealed that there are multiple Witcher games currently in the works. While most of the new games are still shrouded in mystery, I do have an exciting bit of news to share as Project Canis Majoris has just now been unmasked as an Unreal Engine 5 remake of the original Witcher game!

The upcoming Witcher Remake will be a collaboration between CD Projekt Red and Fool’s Theory, a studio that worked on a variety of games like Baldur's Gate 3, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and Seven: The Days Long Gone. I'd love to give you some actual details about the revamped gameplay and potential new features, but The Witcher Remake is currently still early in development so the details are completely nonexistent.

If I were to hazard a guess, however, I would say that we can expect The Witcher Remake to bring with it greatly improved visuals, as well as an overhauled combat system that brings it closer to the modern Witcher games. Personally, I'd love to see improvements to the overall pacing more than anything else, as certain chapters of the original game simply drag on for too long without really showing the player much of anything.

Once we get some actual information, about the The Witcher Remake or any of the other Witcher games, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, I'm afraid all we can really do is sit and wait.
