CD Projekt RED spoke with IGN about the upcoming The Witcher Remake.
The upcoming The Witcher Remake is going to be an open-world role-playing game, according to a new report from IGN. The Witcher Remake open-world design will allow for a more seamless experience as players traverse the game world without annoying load screens.
As we previously reported, the remake is built from the ground up with Unreal Engine 5. So fans can expect a massive graphical improvement over the original game, which was released in 2007. The open-world design is new though.
Unfortunately, we should not expect to play it anytime soon. In fact, The Witcher 4 will likely come out first. So you might as well take advantage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt free next-gen update on your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S console when it comes out in December.
The Witcher Remake open world design confirmed
The open-world design was confirmed in a report from IGN. According to the report:
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that its Unreal Engine 5 remake of 2007’s The Witcher will be fully open world.
Revealed during its third quarter financial results, CD Projekt Red briefly mentioned its announcement of The Witcher Remake, saying that it will be a “story-driven, single player open world RPG”.
The studio had previously only confirmed that it would be another “full-fledged” Witcher game, but as the original is not open world, there was still speculation whether or not the remake would resemble the 2007 version or something closer to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
CD Projekt RED recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of the franchise where the team behind the original got together to reminisce and share stories.
