Here's a sneak peek of the Witcher game that never was

From the secret vaults of game dev history.

A Polish documentary has discovered some rare footage of unreleased Witcher games from as long ago as 1997.

The footage, seen in a documentary produced by a colleague of Metropolis Studio co-founder Adrian Chmielarz, contains footage of the cancelled 1997 Witcher game they were working on at the time.

Chmielarz since went on to work on Bulletstorm and create The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, but the Witcher project that CD Projekt Red took over was a very different beast to what we know today. 

You can see the documentary here in Polish with English cc.


Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. Get in touch to talk about work or the $6 million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter.
