CD Projekt RED has announced that The Witcher Remake is currently in the works. According to the studio, the game is now in the early stages of development and is being built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 5.
The title is being created by the Polish studio Fool’s Theory comprised of developers who worked on the Witcher series. CD Projekt RED itself is also involved in the project in the form of providing full creative supervision.
Little is known about the title yet except the fact that it is the same game that CDPR announced earlier in October as the project codenamed "Canis Majoris". CD Projekt RED noted that although it is "excited to share the news" with the public, it is too early to share any details about the project yet.
"It’s still early and we want to ensure that the game is created with the utmost care and attention to detail, therefore, while we’re excited to share the news with you, we want to ask you for patience as it will be a while until we start talking about this project in detail," CDPR wrote in the announcement.
"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. 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," Adam Badowski, Head of Studio at CDPR, said.
