CD Projekt Red, the Polish game developer, announced on Wednesday that they are all set to remake The Witcher using Unreal Engine 5 – a 3D animation tool designed to create highly-detailed virtual worlds. They will be collaborating with Fools’ Theory – another game studio in Poland, for the project. 

“The game is currently in the early stages of development at the Polish studio Fool’s Theory, where veteran Witcher series staff are involved. We, as CD PROJEKT RED, are providing full creative supervision,” a statement on the Witcher 3 official website said.

A tentative release date for the game is yet to be announced. 

Earlier in October, CD Projekt Red had announced a “full-fledged” remake of a game under the codename Canis Majoris. They have not confirmed that Canis Majoris is the redesigned Witcher 3.  

“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,” Adam Badowski, the head of CD Projekt Red, said in a statement. “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.”

“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”, he added. 

Along with the Witcher 3 remake, the Studio announced that it will be producing five more games in the next few years.
