The 2007 remake the witcher will give players a bit more freedom than the first time around. The Witcher Remake, which is being developed by CD Projekt Red, will be open-world, unlike the original 2007 version of the game, which was slightly more linear. It’s not yet known when the remake might be released, which means it’s probably still quite a ways off.
The new reveal about the game’s structure came from a slide in the CD Project Group Q3 Investor Presentation. The slide features a splatter fire-filled graphic with a logo for the remake in The Witcher’s recognizable font and describes the game as a “story-driven, single-player open-world RPG.” While that doesn’t give us much insight into what the remake’s open world might look like, it does feel like a pretty big change from the original game, which gave players some bigger environments to explore as they killed monsters and gained buffs for Gerald, but was pretty linear overall.
Although none of this is terribly surprising, given that it’s exactly the structure that helped the series emerge with massive 2015 success. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it is slightly different from the structure of the original game. More importantly, it suggests that CD Projekt will expand the scope of the first game and could tell the same story while giving players a much bigger and bigger world to explore around it.
