CD Projekt RED President and joint CEO Adam Kiciński revealed that The Witcher Remake from Fool's Theory will come after The Witcher 4.
So in 2030 got it.
I came to say this. If true i don't know why bother announcing it now.
If you're lucky.
Your talking about release date for me this confirms there in house red engine that they spent millions on is no longer going to be used and tossed away do too all the employees they lost because of poor management/crunch time and or abuse.
I played there old games for yrs even some of the port crap but for me this new witcher game with almost every old witcher employee gone is going to be a wait to see situation. Unreal engine has its own issues like shader loading/asset flipping/easy to mod or cheat.
But now there saying there employees going forward will be on unreal for the remake well then 7yrs of a new dev team with new engine this may be saints row 2 pc all over again or even cyberpunk launch if we are lucky.
It took the original cd red devs many years to become the witcher 3 quality everyone goes on about i doubt a team off the streets can equal or beat witcher 3 on there first try.
We don't wanna here about it unless it's less than a year away!
So what's the point of even announcing the Witcher remake this early? SMH
The same reason they announced any game early. Good PR and hype (relevance in the media circles).
Also to announce that they are hiring. Many top developers and artists want to land massive projects like The Witcher to keep their career going.
To stop the inevitable harassment from the community
I think their in the process of selling the company.
So, just out of curiosity ladies and gentlemen, i want your two cents on this matter.
Won't it be a bit weird to see Witcher 1, a much older game than the likes of Witcher 3 (which will be getting an upgrade this year), in shinier and better visuals than the mentioned Witcher 3?
I'm glad it seems CDPR are sorting things out with Cyberpunk and releasing the Current gen version of the Witcher for free, when other Devs would charge.
I just wish they would stop this announcing of games years and years in advance, if we look at an optimistic date of Witcher 4 working with a prebuilt engine in unreal 5, that's probably 2024, and that's the earliest as it's 4 years after Cyberpunk. I'm thinking 2025 -26 is more reasonable, that's means that the next Witcher game may not release until 2027 as I don't think they would release 2 Witcher games in the same year. That's just unnecessary.
KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.
Hmm unless they have been working on it already?
Games are taking longer to develop in general and looking at past evidence, they are not going to bring the game until 2024 at the earliest. If they do happy days, Witcher 3 alongside God of war is my fave game of all time, likewise cyberpunk after the patches is now my fave RPG of the last 2-3 years alongside Forbidden west. However they take a long time to release games, and expecting anything other than that as well as inevitable delays is silly.
Took them over a year to launch the current gen patch for Witcher, let's be realistic yeah.
I meant the Remake for 2027 fyi
Woah I didnt even know about witcher 4!
so in 15 years then. Nice :D
You don´t have to make announcements when the game is sooo far in the future.
This is stupid normally you would push for the Remake to come out first to get new people into the franchise so more people will buy 4.
Damn these games are waaaay out
After the Witcher 4?! Whoa. Got my hype on a bit quick.
That's really cool
Don't listen to them, CDPR are selling out! They are purposely trying to overvalue themselves by promising games that are far from having any concrete plans of production. Just so that Sony or some other big publisher will buy them out!
They just barely announced this year that they would fully adopt UE5 for all their games. So their developers are only starting to learn the engine. Meanwhile they haven't even opened up their NA division yet to make up for the fact that a lot of their experienced team left the company after the Cyberpunk fiasco. Yet somehow they already have Witcher 4, Cyberpunk 2, and Witcher Remake on their schedule??? Each game alone would take years to fully complete, if they even do them right.
They just announced Witcher 5
Devoloping such huge game worlds take ages... I will predict the witcher 4 to be released in 2029 and the witcher remake on 2032
