Video games like The Witcher 3 are enormous, complicated pieces of machinery with thousands upon thousands of moving parts. Make one mistake and you can break everything—or, as one developer discovered, you can accidentally unlock every door in the game.
The makers of The Witcher say thieves have stolen design documents for their next game, Cyberpunk 2077. And those thieves demanded a ransom—that the developers say they won’t pay.

Today at 3 pm EST, the CD PROJEKT RED Twitch channel will broadcast an overview of the beta’s offerings. Card collections and player progress will be reset, so new players should feel free to hop in.
The Witcher series is being turned into an English language Netflix drama by CG visual effects company Platige Image S.A.
Video game fans have been anticipating the latest franchise from CD Projekt Red, Cyberpunk 2077, for years. But only recently did it come to light that the makers of The Witcher franchise had trademarked the term “Cyberpunk” and this week some fans cried foul. Now, the developer is insisting that everything is ok and…
The Witcher 3 is an astounding RPG full of countless quests. It ranges from sweeping epic battles to smaller, more intimate tales. I started playing the “Hearts of Stone” DLC recently and experienced a quest so wonderful, I had to take a deeper dive.
Hey, I know that guy!
There’s kings to slay, monsters to hunt, and friends to save in The Witcher 3 but all I really care about is finding gear. I will climb the highest mountain for a new sword. I can’t stop. Not when there’s so much treasure to be found.
Today, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gets a Game of the Year edition. It comes with all the updates, patches, DLC and expansions released over the last year. It’s also the rare “Game of the Year” edition that is appropriately named.
The Witcher 3 Game of the Year edition releases tomorrow and the base game is getting a big patch in preparation. Detailed patch notes show a great many fixes coming to version 1.30. Tweaked item drops, an end to game altering glitches, and a host of quest fixes are highlights.
Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of GOG and development studio CD Projekt Red, has some curious thoughts on how to handle a very thorny subject: piracy.
Blood and Wine, the latest (and final) DLC pack for The Witcher 3, has an easter egg that I am frankly shocked anyone found at all. The secret is remarkably well-hidden, and not accessible through normal means.
It’s been a good year for video game endings! Not long after Uncharted 4's masterpiece, along comes The Witcher 3's final expansion Blood & Wine, which serves as a playable farewell tour for Geralt of Rivia, someone fans have been playing as for almost nine years now. And that farewell is good.
I haven’t spent a lot of time playing Gwent in The Witcher 3—there are too many monsters to hunt, too many mysteries to solve—but with CD Projekt Red’s new spinoff, that’s probably going to change.
Is Witcher III card game Gwent strong enough to stand on its own? A trademark application filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office indicates that developer CD Projekt Red thinks so. That, or they just wanted to protect the keen logo they came up with.
Here’s the intro to Blood & Wine, in which Geralt is encouraged to take up a fancy new contract and says farewell to the Northern Kingdoms.
The Witcher 3's final (and biggest) expansion, Blood & Wine, is now out. If you need me for the next month, that’s where I’ll be. To celebrate, here’s a Studio Ghibli-inspired crossover piece by Lap Pun Cheung, who is very good at this sort of thing.
Here, courtesy of developer CD Projekt Red, is a new trailer for The Witcher 3's upcoming Blood and Wine expansion. Really, all they had to do was say “look, more Witcher 3.” But this is cool too.
The Witcher 3 is an incredible video game, one I’m still playing a year after release. One of the main reasons it’s so good is that, for a big open-world game, everything actually comes together and works.
