Earlier this week, CD Projekt Red announced that a remake of The Witcher in Unreal Engine 5 is currently in development.
The Polish studio Fool's Theory is developing the project, with CD Projekt Red stating it will provide full creative supervision on the title to provide the "utmost care and attention to detail".
This will likely be welcome news to those fans who joined the series with 2011's The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings or 2015's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and have since struggled to get to grips with the original game.
As many have noted time and time again, the original Witcher title is far less approachable than its sequels, due to its click-based combat and confusing user interface and inventory management.
Nevertheless, it's still a superb title that holds a great many surprises in the form of some excellent environmental storytelling and brilliant quest design. The hope is that this new remake will lower the barriers and let more Witcher fans experience those features, without some of the frustrations experienced elsewhere.
