The Witcher Remake Will Be Fully Open World, Unlike The Original

The recently announced remake of The Witcher in Unreal Engine 5 will be fully open world, marking a major departure from the original game.

Developer CD Projekt Red announced the news as part of its Q3 2022 earnings report, where it listed the title, named Canis Majoris, as a “story-driven single-player open-world RPG – a modern reimagining of 2007’s The Witcher”. The fact that the game will be open-world was not mentioned when it was initially announced in October.
