CD Projekt RED celebrated its 20th anniversary since the beginning of July and systematically invited game enthusiasts to participate in jubilee streams. During one of the broadcasts, Philipp Weber, who deals with tasks in The Witcher 3, revealed that the last secret of the production has not yet been discovered – this encouraged YouTuber xLetalis to start an investigation.
It will not be too much of an abuse on my part if I find that the developers working on the third installment of The Witcher did a great job, adding a number of flavors to the game, hiding atmospheric Easter Eggs and unexpected surprises – after 7 years from the premiere, many of them were discovered. During one of the broadcasts of the studio celebrating its anniversary, Philipp Weber – the quest designer – revealed that a secret was not known.
The developer admitted that the mystery concerns “a certain character”, is “quite significant” to the plot, and that a trip to the Crooked Marsh may help in discovering it. According to the Eurogamer editors , xLetalis, an internet developer specializing in The Witcher 3, most likely solved this puzzle.
One of the worst endings of the game concerns Ciri’s death – the Spinner we meet tells Geralt that the girl is dead and the monster hunter will soon share her fate. After the epilogue, Youtuber xLetalis decided to go to the witch’s hut and saw what she had been working on before. On the table there is a cloth most likely showing the Tor Gvalch’ca tower – the one in which Ciri was last seen.
xLetalis examined each scrap of fabric closely and noticed a bird embroidered on it departing from the tower – there are many indications that it may be a swallow. As we well know, the symbol of the Lion Cub of Cintra is the swallow which signifies freedom. Thus, the found fabric gave hope that Ciri survived and regained her freedom – at least that’s what Youtuber and The Witcher 3 enthusiasts claim.
Interestingly, after discovering the find in the hut, xLetalis contacted the developer of CD Projekt RED and was encouraged to interpret the embroidery on the material. Weber congratulated him on his discovery, and Paweł Sasko also expressed his enthusiasm. So if the player’s translation is correct, it is possible that the last problem has been resolved.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is already old, but it can still arouse a lot of emotions and encourages you to look for flavors hidden by developers. Let us remind you that in March the same internet creator boasted another discovery about Vivienne de Tabris.
