The Witcher 1 Remake will switch to an open-world structure, CD Projekt Red confirmed in their Q3 2022 earnings report. The original game was fairly linear in its design. 

CD Projekt Red today released their Q3 2022 earnings report where they confirmed that the recently announced remake of The Witcher 1 will go fully open world. This is a massive change in the game's structure given that the original was not an open-world game.

The Witcher 1 had several open areas that players could explore, like the city of Vizima which Geralt visits early in the game. Each chapter had its own open area but these are far from traditional open-world games like Skyrim or The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 1 Remake should probably connect all these open areas into one seamless open world that players can explore freely and fast travel between the cities and regions, instead of being locked to one location like in the original. 

In the earnings report, CD Projekt Red described The Witcher 1 Remake as a "story-driven, single-player open-world RPG" and "a modern reimagining of 2007’s The Witcher".

Sadly, that's about it when it comes to The Witcher 1 Remake details in the earnings report. CD Projekt Red did also added that the dev team working on the game is a bit bigger now than earlier this year but other details were not shared.
