The Witcher is about to get a Unreal Engine 5 makeover



The announcement comes 15 years after the game’s world premiere (October 26, 2007). The new version is powered by the Unreal Engine 5 game engine and is “rebuilt from the ground up”, as the announcement states.

The remake is made by the Polish developer Fool’s Theory, who previously helped Larian with Baldur’s Gate 3, among other things. According to CD Projekt, they contribute with their know-how and support. The project is quite fresh, so while there are no indications of when it will be finished, you can be sure that it will take a while.

The game goes by the working name Canis Majoris, and was thus one of the five projects that CDPR mentioned when they staked out the future a few weeks ago. Then it was called a full-sized The Witcher game with no connection to the new The Witcher series CDPR is working on, and coded by an external studio.

The Witcher original thus fills mop today. Just under a year later, an improved version was released with the additional name Enhanced Edition . It was the start of a particularly acclaimed game series.
