Project Canis Majoris is a spin-off game set in the Witcher universe that is separate from the new saga. However, the project will begin with another installment called “Polaris,” which is currently in pre-production as a trilogy series. Canis Majoris will also be developed by a 3rd party studio of ex-Witcher veterans.
Project Canis Majoris will be a single-player open-world RPG with an immersive story. After Polaris releases, there will be a 6-year period of new games, possibly including this latest Witcher project. Currently, there are no other details about Canis Majoris’ cast or developers, but some fans have already made some theories about this upcoming title.
Who Is Developing Project Canis Majoris?
One Reddit user has indicated that Rebel Wolves or Dark Passenger studios could be the developers behind Project Canis Majoris since there are several Witcher veterans on these teams:
Others have tried deciphering the project’s name, translating it to the Latin word “Greater Dog.” In addition, this concept is linked to a constellation as one of Orion’s (the god of hunting) dogs. Alongside Canis Majoris is the brightest star, Sirius, which is the name of another tentative project from CD Projekt Red. That being said, these games could be connected, so we will have to see what happens in the future.
