The remake is reportedly in the early stages of development. Fool's Theory studio, which consists of veteran developers who worked on the Witcher game Syria, will be responsible for the project. The CD Projekt RED team has full creative control. The game was previously codenamed Project Canis Majoris.

The Witcher is where it all started for us, for CD PROJEKT RED. It was the first game we made and it was an important event for us back then. Coming back to it and redesigning the game for the next generation of gamers, it feels just as big, if not huge.

Collaborating with Fool's Theory on the project is just as exciting as many of them have previously been involved in the development of games in the Witcher series. They know the source material well, they know how much gamers have been waiting for the remake, and they know how to make incredible and ambitious games. And while it will be a while before we're ready to reveal more about and from the game, I know it's worth the wait.

says Adam Badowski, studio director at CD Projekt RED.

A remake of The Witcher is being created for PC and next-generation consoles. We can find out more details later.
