Forums - Gaming Discussion - New Witcher Saga Announced (Unreal Engine 5)



Around the Network

Welcome back to 30 fps on next gen.



Witcher + Unreal Engine 5? Fuck yes! Say what you will about Cyberpunk/Witcher series but visually, they look amazing! Hype!



             

                               Anime: Haruhi                                                                                                           Nsfw Anime Thread                                     

Hoping for playable Ciri (set after Witcher 3's Ciri becomes a Witcher ending) for this new Witcher series, or create-a-witcher would work too. Also hoping we get to see some new locations that haven't appeared in the games yet, always thought Kovir would be interesting to see.

Very interesting that they are dropping Red Engine in favor of Unreal 5, supposedly Red Engine was kind of tricky to develop for and was partially responsible for Cyberpunk's issues, so they are likely making the right call switching to a very easy to develop for engine like Unreal. Unreal 5 also has Quixel, a huge library of photogrammetry scanned texture assets for developers to use, which should speed things up vs CD Project texturing everything themselves. Hoping for a release in 2025, 2026 at the latest with Unreal 5 being used.



Hoping we get a Ciri game at last.

Heard that the bulk of the TW3 team left CD, can anyone confirm that? Then CP2077 was a disaster. Let's hope this turns out better

I don't think it was the bulk, some of the Witcher 3 department leads left to form a new a new studio which recently announced they are developing a new AAA dark fantasy RPG series, but as far as I know only like 6 Witcher 3 devs are on that studio as of now, though more might leave to join them in the future as they start to staff up to AAA size.

30fps was always going to be the default for next gen (truly next gen/not cross gen) open world games on console. 

But hopefully 60fps modes persisit, even if 1080p

Yeah, I knew that CD Projekt wouldn't go for an Epic timed exclusivity deal, especially since they have their own storefront which competes with Epic, GOG.
