This is a game codenamed Project Sirius. The project was presented in October 2022 and was a non-linear adventure action game with “an unforgettable story”Multiplayer and aimed at a wider audience.

In a note to CD Projekt’s investors notified on the write-off of expenses for the development of the Sirius project – 42.9 million zlotys (about 9.77 million US dollars) for the period from the beginning of 2022 to the end of February 2023.

The company added that the said decision was based on “the results of evaluating the scope and commercial potential of the original Project Sirius concept and ongoing work to establish a new foundation for this project.”

In other words, the original Project Sirius concept wasn’t promising enough for CD Projekt and they now decided to rework it. How the game will change after the scale and frame modification is unclear.

Sirius had no release date, list of target platforms, or final name. At the time of confirmation last fall, the project was in the pre-production phase and about 60 people were working on it.

In addition to Sirius, the studio Fool’s Theory (Seven: The Days Long Gone) is also involved with its game in the Witcher universe outside of CD Projekt RED. She’s making the first remake of The Witcher not to be released anytime soon.
