CD Projekt announced in October that The Witcher, the studio’s first game, will be getting a full remake (opens in new tab). Fans eager to see how Geralt’s videogame adventures got started will have to be more patient than they likely expected, though, as the studio said in its recent financial results Q&A that the remake won’t be out until sometime after the launch of The Witcher 4 (opens in new tab).

“[The Witcher remake] will come after Polaris, which is a consequence of how we think about this project,” CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński said in response to a question about the remake launch timing. “We think that [the] remake will be based in big part on technologies from Polaris. So, it will be developed partially parallel to Polaris, but once Polaris is launched, everything for Polaris will be then in the final shape and it will be, partially, be produced in [the] remake.”
