Developer CD Projekt Red has renewed the deal with writer Andrzej Sapkowski to continue to make games based on The Witcher books.

The developer and the writer already had a deal, from which the previous The Witcher games originated. Sapkowski, however, asked little money for the license, because he expected little success for the games. When it turned out that the games were successful, he wanted to earn more money from it. The writer and the developer eventually came together, and now a new deal has also been concluded for future games.

Adam Kiciński, CEO of CD project Red, reports on the developer’s website: “We have always admired Mr. Andrzej Sapkowski’s work, he is a great inspiration for the team here. Today we are ushering in a new era of our ongoing collaboration.”

The deal means that the studio has the exclusive right to make games, graphic novels, board games and merchandise based on the franchise.
