Recently an anonymous post related to The Witcher: Project Sirius has gone viral on the internet and the international gaming community, and in which the owner of the article has confirmed that this game is a series of The Witcher “sessions”. Japanese version” will use Unreal Engine 5. For those unfamiliar, Project Sirius is one of a total of six projects known to be in development at CD Projekt Red, along with new Cyberpunk 2077 projects, the similar new The Witcher project and a brand new original IP.
Whether rumors are credible depends on their source, and an anonymous internet post can be unreliable when they appear, especially when it appears to have originated. from 4chan forum. For that reason gamers should be aware that this information can be easily faked and should be viewed as a reference only.
According to this rumor, Project Sirius is currently being planned as a one-off project. After various online live service games went down recently, it seems likely that this project will be entirely a single-player title and remove the previously reported multiplayer elements, at least. especially according to rumours. The game is said to be similar to The Witcher: Ronin manga, which takes place in an open world or semi-open world location inspired by Japan. Finally, this rumor also suggests that an anime adaptation of the game is also being considered in the hope that The Witcher series will be even more popular in the eastern hemisphere countries.
More notably, “Sirius” is the name of the brightest star in the sky after the sun and is also known as the Canine, possibly referring to The Witcher’s School of the Wolf and the Land of the Rising Sun. However, whether that is evidence for this rumor or just a fact that inspired the rumor, we cannot determine. There are also some claims in this rumor that are quite questionable. First, the owner of the article thinks that its “one-time project” approach will be similar to FromSoftware’s Bloodborne, which will disappoint gamers who were hoping for a sequel. Second, previous job vacancies suggest that this The Witcher game has co-op and other multiplayer elements, so saying that multiplayer is completely scrapped seems like a no-brainer. unlikely, though this information from rumors could also just be poor wording and could refer to the removal of competitive game modes.
On the other hand, this article is also being criticized for saying that the developers want to popularize The Witcher series in the east. The Witcher 3 is actually one of the most popular western RPGs in Japan so it sounds like a point of conflict, but contextually pushing the Asian market is actually the thing. reasonable. Reports say The Witcher 3 has sold 50 million copies worldwide, but it will not be until late 2022 until early 2023 that it will become the most popular Western RPG in Japan with 1 million copies. games are sold.
Finally, this rumor about The Witcher project has not been confirmed by any official sources so gamers will still need to wait to see the truth. While it may be wrong, it’s not entirely unreasonable and it would be interesting if we had a The Witcher game with a Japanese setting.
