Remasters are always a tricky subject, but with the sheer popularity of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it's no surprise that many players are wondering what it'd be like to have the first two games in the series re-released on new-gen consoles. Of course, it goes without saying that the PlayStation faithful have never had a chance to sample the prior escapades of Geralt in the first place, so in that sense, remastering the originals seems like a reasonable idea.

However, such a thought has been shut down by the ever-reliable CD Projekt Red community lead Marcin Momot, who told a fan on Twitter that it's probably never happening: "[Remastering the first two games] is a really cool idea. Sadly, doubt this will ever happen."

And there you have it. To be fair, we wouldn't call the first two titles essential; both have been thoroughly outclassed in the gameplay department by Wild Hunt, and the initial release in particular would need a lot of additional work to make it seem more suitable to a newer audience. That's not to say that both games aren't worth playing - especially if you're into the story - but we wouldn't get too upset about unlikely remasters.

Have you played the first two Witcher titles? Do you think they deserve to be remastered? Be disgusted by the fact that Geralt never used to have a beard in the comments section below.
