CD Projekt Red have announced their plans to remake the original Witcher game, stating that they are going to build the game "from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5." While details of this game are scarce, there are a few things CD Projekt Red has been willing to let slip.

One of the most important pieces of information that CD Projekt Red unveiled was the fact that CD Projekt Red will not be the studio working on The Witcher Remake. This might come as a surprise to many fans of The Witcher trilogy which was made by CD Projekt Red but rest assured. CD Projekt Red has stated that they will be in a supervisor position but will leave the actual development to Fool's Theory.

Fool's Theory is a Polish studio that has contributed to many RPG games in the past, including Baldurs Gate III, Divinity: Original Sin 2, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, and Outriders. In an official statement made by Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt Red, he stated that "Collaborating with Fool’s Theory on the project is just as exciting, as some of the people there have been previously involved in The Witcher games. They know the source material well, they know how much gamers have been looking forward to seeing the remake happen, and they know how to make incredible and ambitious games. And although it will take some time before we’re ready to share more about and from the game, I know it’ll be worth the wait.”

So while fans of the series know that Fool's theory is working on the game, other details about the Witcher remake are being kept closely under wraps.
