The Witcher Remake

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition is out on December 14th, bringing the popular RPG to Xbox Series X/S and PS5. But there’s plenty more to come for fans of the series. The next Witcher title, codenamed Polaris, is being developed on Unreal Engine 5 and will have two more sequels released within six years after its launch.

There’s also The Witcher Remake, formerly Project Canis Majoris. It’s also developed on Unreal Engine 5 by Fool’s Theory, a third-party studio formed by ex-Witcher developers. Unlike the original release, it will be an open-world title.

However, it may be a while before it sees release. During CD Projekt Group’s Q3 2022 earnings call, president and joint CEO Adam Kiciński confirmed that The Witcher Remake would launch after Polaris.

“Coming back to The Witcher Remake and when it will come. Yes, it will come after Polaris, which is a consequence of how we think about this project. I think The Witcher Remake will be based in big part on technologies from Polaris, so it will be developed partially in parallel to Polaris. But once Polaris is launched, everything for Polaris will be then in the final shape, and it will be partially reused in the remake.”

If the remake is already adapting tools used in Polaris, then the gap between releases may not be too long. Time will ultimately tell, so stay tuned for more details.
