Game Drops has received official information from CD Projekt Red. The first game of The Witcher franchise will get a remake in Unreal Engine 5.
Codenamed “Canis Majoris” during the studio’s strategy update in early October, the remake will be a modern take on The. Witcher 2007 – the first game in the famous RPG trilogy of CD PROJEKT RED. The title will be built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 5 technology and will use the toolset that CDPR is building for the new saga of The. Witcher.
The project is currently in the early stages of development by Fool’s Theory – a game development studio specializing in RPG titles. The team includes several veteran developers who previously worked at The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and CD PROJEKT RED provide full creative oversight.
” Witcher is where it all began for CD PROJEKT RED. It was the first game we played and it was a big moment for us. Going back to it and remaking the title for the next generation of gamers is just as big a project, if not bigger,” says Adam Badowski, Studio Head of CD PROJEKT RED. “Collaborating with Fool’s Theory on this project is very exciting because some people on the team are already involved in The Witcher in the past They know the source material well, they know how much gamers are looking forward to a remake, and they know how to make amazing and ambitious games. And while it will be a while before we’re ready to share more information, I know the wait will be worth it. “
“I’m glad that my professional path has once again brought me closer to other developers since the time we worked together at The Witcher 2 and Witcher 3. Especially since it’s a remake of a project that’s so close to our hearts,” says Jakub Rokos, CEO of Fool’s Theory. “We are delighted to be joining forces with CD PROJEKT RED and aim to offer gamers another great title in the iconic The. Witcher.”
