Released in 2007, The Witcher is based on the books of the same name, and introduced Geralt of Rivia to gaming. Recently, CD Projekt Red announced that the game will be entirely remade with a version for Unreal Engine 5.
The plot has also spawned a series for Netflix, with Henry Cavill in the role of the wizard over two seasons, with a third season already confirmed.
The Witcher was released in 2007
The first The Witcher brings a very different gameplay experience from that found in its sequels. Divided into chapters, the game has a more linear experience telling what happens to Geralt of Rivia after he has his memories erased in a confrontation with the dangerous Wild Hunt.
The title was developed from the Aurora Engine, technology created by BioWare to develop games like Neverwinter Nights. From it, CD Projekt RED made several modifications to allow it to work in a more action context, as well as adding new visuals and more complex lighting systems.
The developer even considered bringing the first The Witcher to consoles, but difficulties in the development process prevented this from happening. So far they have released few details about the remake, other than the fact that it will use Unreal Engine 5 and is being created under the codename Canis Majoris.
