Geralt almost didn't appear in the first Witcher game

Without a decision taken a few years into the creation of the first game, The Witcher as we know it now would not exist. CD Projekt Red quest designers Phillipp Weber and Baej Augustynek stated during a developer talk at WitcherCon that Geralt wasn't intended to be the series' headliner from the start.

Early on in the development of The Witcher, CD Projekt Red decided to base the game on player-created characters, which was a departure from the norm for RPGs at the time. Despite the fact that Geralt is the central character in the book series on which the game is based, there are plenty of far-flung lands and a complicated history to draw from, so it wouldn't have been unreasonable to present the game from a different perspective.


"For the first several years, we essentially tried to design it such that you could create your own witcher and explore new regions, but the question kept coming up, you know. The Witcher is the name of the game "Weber said. "I think everyone understood at some point that, yes, we want to be Geralt of Rivia, we want to be the Witcher."

My mind immediately constructed an entirely new reality in which The Witcher 2, The Witcher 3, the TV programs, and everything flowering from Geralt's distinct charm do not exist.


Worst of all, we might not have Tub Geralt, and what would have happened to PC Gamer if we didn't have Tub Geralt? Is it still valid? Would I be able to work here? I dread the header images we'd have to come up with in place of our bath time buddy.


But, as it turns out, we're on the right track. Season 2 of Netflix's adaption of The Witcher has been announced, and we're guessing a teaser will be released later today. Throughout the day, we'll be following WitcherCon for more news, revelations, and trivia.
