The Witcher will return as a Remake and Geralt’s voice actor would certainly be willing to reprise the role, but he hasn’t been contacted for now.
The voice actor of Geralt of Rivia in the video game series The Witcher – Doug Cockle – has not yet been contacted by CD Projekt RED for the remake of The Witcher, but he would certainly be ready to take on the role (metaphorically) of the Polish witcher.
Doug Cockle was asked if he ‘d like to return to voice the witcher for the remake of The Witcher, which CD Projekt announced in October. “I made myself available in an instant,” Cockle replied.
However, Cockle revealed that CD Projekt has not yet approached him about the role . “Right now I know as much as you do,” Cockle continued, adding that all he knows is that there is a remake of the first Witcher and that CD Projekt is using Unreal Engine 5. So Cockle doesn’t know if CD Projekt is actually re-recording the dialogue from the original The Witcher or whether it will simply re-use the existing audio.
Eurogamer’s interview with Cockle goes on to hypothesize the reasons for and against CD Projekt’s recording of dialogue, rightly pointing out that the budget of the games has increased significantly after the first chapter, and so has the cost of the actors. However, it would seem strange that after all these years the team decides to change Geralt’s voice.
