CD Project Red presents the new logo of The Witcher 3 studio and game.
CD Project Red decided to change their own clothes a bit.
Meet REDbird, the new mascot of the Polish game development studio for 10 years.
As the creators themselves say about it
We are, in a sense, rebels, and like them, we are free. Just like birds. The Northern Cardinal (or REDbird) embodies those qualities that identify us in the video game industry and give our business character: independence and steadfastness. We try to ascend to heights, and aim even higher. ” – said Adam Badowski, head of the CD PROJEKT RED studio. “The color red, with which we are so strongly associated, we share with another being: Raróg. A fiery bird appearing in Slavic legends, supposed to bring people happiness and prosperity. And just like in it, there is fire in us, a source of strength, passion and creativity. Everything that allows us to create erpegs that are the heart of our philosophy.
However, that’s not all, because the logo of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has also changed. The new logo features a mask reminiscent of the leaders of the Gon, shrouded in the legend of Eredin.
The Wild Hunt has always been seen as a harbinger of war, suffering and death. Ghost riders of unknown origins sow fear in people’s hearts. It is believed that they have the ability to enslave souls, which they then incorporate into their terrifying retinue. They come in winter, under the cover of night, and their appearance is always preceded by the northern lights.
In The Witcher 3, Wild Hunt is not an “ordinary” enemy; The “boss” waiting patiently for Geralt at the end of the path. Gon is part of the Witcher universe and an important element of beliefs and stories told by the community inhabiting it. It is extremely important for the game world and has a great influence on it, determining its fate. It is the axis of the game and will be at the heart of the events from start to finish.
The creatures in charge of it are more terrible, more powerful, and more mysterious than the Wild Hunt itself. Their number and their goals remain unknown – few of those who met Gon survived to tell what they saw.
The game will come out on PC, Xbox One and PS4, we should get more details and information soon.
