Fantasy Flight Games, a global leader in the production and distribution of board games, in collaboration with CD Projekt RED will release The Witcher Adventure Game in 2014.
In addition to strengthening The Witcher franchise, the board game (much like the corresponding comic book series) will constitute an additional source of revenue for CD PROJEKT of which CD Projekt RED is a subsidiary.
“Fantasy Flight Games is known for its high-quality products and excellent communication with the player base. We are proud to have such partners in our work on expanding The Witcher universe.” – says Adam Badowski, CD Projekt RED Studio head and member of the CD PROJEKT management board.
“We are immensely pleased to contribute to the development of The Witcher Adventure Game, together with CD Projekt RED. The backstory and world of The Witcher lend themselves easily to the creation of a compelling board game. We are excited to announce that by the end of 2014 players will be able to take part in new adventures and tell new stories each time they gather around the game board.” – says Steve Horvath, Senior Vice President for Market Relations and Business Growth at Fantasy Flight Games.
In addition to the “standard” board edition, The Witcher Adventure Game will also be released for tablet devices.
The author of The Witcher Adventure Game is Ignacy Trzewiczek – a world-renowned game designer, made famous by such releases as Stronghold, 51st State and Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island. In this newest project players will be able to choose between collaboration and competition, impersonating Geralt the Witcher, Triss Merigold the Sorceress, Dandelion the Bard or Yarpen Zigrin the Dwarf. The multitude of available quests – from monster hunts to courtly intrigue – will make each game a unique experience.
In Poland The Witcher Adventure Game will be distributed by CDP.pl, a subsidiary of the CD PROJEKT Group.

The CD Projekt RED Studio is the producer of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, scheduled for release in 2014 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Thus far over 6 million copies of The Witcher games have been sold worldwide. The Witcher 3 is widely regarded as one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of 2014 (Golden Joystick, VGX, IGN).
