The Witcher Game 'Project Sirius' Could Be Undergoing a Reboot
Announced as part of a series of The Witcher games, including a new The Witcher trilogy, it appears that ‘Project Sirius’, a Witcher game from developer The Molasses Flood, could be taken back to the drawing board.
According to CD Projekt RED (via VGC), expenses of 33.4 million PLN ($7.6m) were incurred during 2022, alongside a further 9.5 million PLN ($2.2m) in the first two months of 2023. It claims that the numbers “will accordingly burden the [company’s] financial results”, which has apparently led it to rethink Project Sirius.
“The aforementioned decision is based on results of evaluation of the scope and commercial potential of the original concept of Project Sirius, and ongoing work on formulating a new framework for this project,” CD Projekt explained.
Project Sirius is said to be “an unforgettable story for existing Witcher fans and new audiences,” from the studio behind The Flame in the Flood. “The game will be set in The Witcher universe, but it differs from our past releases in that it targets a much broader audience,” said CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński. "Sirius will provide both single-player and multiplayer gameplay.”
What shape the game will ultimately take, however, remains to be seen. If you're craving some Geralt action, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition is now available - the original release is among our all-time best RPGs.
