The original The Witcher game developed by CD Projekt Red wasn’t a massive hit when it came out in 2007. It had a few growing pains at first being a PC exclusive release at a time when PC gaming was more of a niche combined dated mechanics (even at the time of release). It wasn’t a bad game, but it had room for improvement. As a result, CD Projekt Red have decided to do a complete remake from the ground up using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 5.
The remake is in the incredibly early stages of development, but it isn’t being done by the original studio, but fellow Polish studio, Fool’s Theory, “where veteran Witcher series staff are involved,” according to a statement from CD Projekt Red. No release date has been announced.
Adam Badowski, head of studio at CD Projekt Red, said in a statement:
He provided insight into who Fool’s Theory are and ensures that the team there are passionate and knowledgeable of the universe and the games: “Collaborating with Fool’s Theory on the project is just as exciting, as some of the people there have been previously involved in the 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.”
Badowski acknowledges that “it will take some time before we’re ready to share more about and from the game” but assures us “it’ll be worth the wait.”
Fool’s Theory CEO and co-owner, Jakub Rokosz, worked on both The Witcher 2 and The Witcher 3 alongside Fool’s Theory design director, Karolina Kuzia-Rokosz.
The studio currently has nearly 60 developers working there and have provided support work on major games like Baldur’s Gate 3, Divinity: Original Sin 2, and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The studio developed Seven: The Days Long Gone independently to decent reviews. It currently holds a 68 score on Metacritic.
