In addition to the announcement, we know practically nothing about The Witcher Remake. The first game in the series is currently undergoing a makeover in Unreal Engine 5 and while waiting to find out the first information about it, a small but important doubt emerged related to the voice actor of Geralt of Rivia.
During an interview with Eurogamer, in fact, Doug Cockle, voice actor of the protagonist of the series of The Witcher, stated that at the moment he has not received any calls from the Polish development team. However, Cockle would jump at the opportunity in case CD Projekt RED decides to redo the protagonist of the series from scratch. “I know what you know at the moment, or that there is a remake of the first chapter and that it is developed using the Unreal Engine 5”, Cockle's words declared to his British colleagues.
At present, of course, we are light years away from the release of The Witcher Remake. For Cockle, though, the call may never come. As we well know, all the games in the series are full of dialogue and it would be far too demanding for CD Projekt RED to record entire dialogue sessions. Of course, there is always the possibility that in Poland they will actually decide to go down this path, but at the moment it is highly unlikely.
In addition to the remake of The Witcher, CD Projekt RED is also busy on other fronts, such as for example a new game set in the Cyberpunk universe and just a new chapter in the series which made her famous to the world. These efforts are only possible thanks to the strategy of the Polish development team, which over the years has opened new development studios and established important partnerships such as the one with Saber Interactive, which has already borne fruit by bringing the third chapter of the Geralt series of Rivia on Nintendo Switch.
