CD Projekt RED has a number of games in the Witcher series in the works. Not only is the developer working on the next mainline instalment in the series that will kick off a new trilogy, it’s also working on a remake of the original Witcher game in collaboration with Fool’s Theory, a newly-established third party studio led by ex-Witcher devs.

In addition to that, The Molasses Flood is working on a game currently codenamed Project Sirius, which has been described as “innovative take on The Witcher universe” that will tell an “unforgettable tale for existing Witcher fans and new audiences”, though it seems that title has seen some unexpected developments behind the scenes.

As per a regulatory announcement published earlier this week, CD Projekt seems to have rebooted Project Sirius’ development. As per the announcement, the company has established “an impairment allowance with regard to expenses incurred in the scope of development work related to Project Sirius“, and says the expenses will “accordingly burden the financial results for the first quarter of 2023.”

The company goes on to say that the decision is “based on results of evaluation of the scope and commercial potential of the original concept of Project Sirius, and ongoing work on formulating a new framework for this project.”

Given the fact that CD Projekt is injecting more money into the project in its early stages and talking about its commercial potential, one has to wonder what that means for the project’s current scope, though the company has yet to provide any specific details regarding what this shift in approach to the title’s development entails.

Previous job listings have suggested that Project Sirius could feature elements such as procedural generation, co-op gameplay, branching storylines, and more. Read more on that through here.
