The Witcher Dev CD Project RED Not Involved in Netflix TV Series

The Witcher Dev CD Project RED Not Involved in Netflix TV Series

However, CD Projekt Red is not involved with the project but is still looking forward to watching The Witcher Netflix series.

The series' author, who is no fan of the video game adaptations, has announced that he will serve as a creative consultant on the series.

The Witcher franchise centers on magic-wielding monster hunters called "witchers" who wield supernatural abilities and weapons of vast power to battle monsters, witches, and various other forces of evil.

Not to forget, Dhawan was the highest run getter (363) and was also adjudged as Man of Series in 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. Also, form of Ajinkya Rahane raised questions but the committee made a decision to go by without change in the squad .

"I'm thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories", says Andrzej Sapkowski. "The characters are original, amusing and constantly surprising, and we can't wait to bring them to life at Netflix, the flawless home for innovative storytelling".

With CD Projekt Red out of the way for the Netflix series, Sapkowski is the only one who will be receiving royalties off the show - assuming he learned from past mistakes before signing this contract, that is. Baginski is said to also be slated to direct at least one episode for each season, adding to the ambition of the series spanning several seasons. "I'm excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life". There is also worry thrown into the mix, as movies based on games and books have not always lived up to snuff in the past, including a previous adaptation of The Witcher story, named The Hexer. The Sean Daniel Company, the studio behind The Mummy franchise, was said to have been developing the film with Polish film company, Platige Image, that focuses on protagonist Geralt of Rivia and the story of how he became known as "the butcher of Blaviken". Netflix has also gotten an Oscar-nominated director Tomek Baginski to helm the project, which just shows how committed it is to make the show successful.

For over 30 years, The Witcher series has been telling a story. With supernatural elements and exciting combat scenes, many are wondering if the upcoming The Witcher series would topple HBO's Game of Thrones in the entertainment scene.
