The codename Canis Majoris, which was revealed earlier this month, referred to this full-fledged The Witcher remake.

The Witcher will be remade. CD Projekt Red revealed in a tweet that their 2007 dark fantasy RPG is being rebuilt from the ground up using Unreal Engine 5. Fool’s Theory, a Polish firm led by senior The Witcher series crew, is overseeing production on the remake. Of course, CD Projekt Red will give complete creative oversight as they attempt to develop the world over the next three years, as announced during its Group Strategy Update webcast earlier this month. The business has officially revealed that the codename “Canis Majoris,” which refers to a full-fledged story-driven open-world game, refers to The Witcher remake.

CD Projekt Red noted in the release, “We want to do things correctly, so please be patient – it’ll be a while before we can disclose further specifics.” The company has already received criticism for a hasty release of Cyberpunk 2077, which resulted in a problematic disaster that was finally withdrawn from sale on PS4.

On October 26, 2003, the first The Witcher game was launched, following the gruff monster hunter Geralt of Rivia on a mission to reclaim his memories. Based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy novel series, it offered three camera viewpoints, including an over-the-shoulder view, which was unusual in RPGs at the time. While the 2007 title got an Enhanced Edition, this is the first time CD Projekt Red is completely reconstructing one.

“The Witcher is where it all began for us, for CD Projekt Red,” studio chief Adam Badowski said in a statement. blog post. “It was the first game we ever produced, and it was a significant deal for us at the time.” Returning to this location and rebuilding the game for the next generation of players to enjoy seems just as huge, if not greater.” He also mentions that the creators at Fool’s Theory have worked on prior The Witcher games and trusts them to honorably use the original material. Previously, the company worked on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Baldur’s Gate III, and Outriders, among other projects.

CD Projekt Red announced four new entries in The Witcher series earlier this month, indicating that they would be exclusively dedicated to it in the following years. A new trilogy called Polaris, an online multiplayer oriented Sirius, and the aforementioned Canis Majoris, which is now known to be The Witcher remake, were among the ideas. The publisher already announced the first installment of the trilogy earlier this year, as well as the fact that it would be renouncing its in-house RED Engine toolbox in favor of Unreal Engine 5 — owing to its new, long-term relationship with Epic Games. As previously indicated, the same toolset will be utilized for The Witcher remake.

CD Projekt Red also intends to build on the dystopian future-set setting of Cyberpunk 2077 with a sequel codenamed “Orion.” The project is currently in its early stages, with the goal of “taking the Cyberpunk franchise farther and continuing to harness the promise of this dark future scenario.”

More information about The Witcher remake will be announced in due course, but we can anticipate it to be released on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X. Meanwhile, CD Projekt Red still intends to release The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS5 and Series S/X later this year.
