Using Unreal Engine 5 for the new The Witcher will make development smoother, but not faster, says CD Projekt.
Using Unreal Engine 5 as the engine to develop the new The Witcher will make the process smoother, but not faster . This was stated by Adam Kiciński, the CEO of CD Projekt, in a call with investors, in which he answered a specific question on the subject, who asked precisely whether the adoption of the Epic Games framework would accelerate the development of the game .
Kiciński then explained that Unreal Engine 5 is a proven technology, which will allow you to better control the various processes and focus more on the creative side. Basically CD Projekt Red will need fewer technicians and will be able to hire more designers, as we explained in a dedicated special .
Someone might rightly ask whether smoother development is not automatically faster, but in reality there is no contradiction in Kiciński’s statement because, simply, given the same production cycle, some resources can be invested differently in the new scenario.
