While The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is still in development, news has emerged from New York Comic Con that the dark fantasy series is set to receive its own comic book series. According to a report from Newsarama on Friday, Dark Horse comics has signed on to bring CD Projekt RED’s version of The Witcher to the realm of sequential art storytelling.
Dark Horse is well versed in video game licensed comic book series. The publisher has previously been responsible for comics based upon such gaming franchises as Mass Effect and Halo. The comic will focus on a previously untold story of series protagonist Geralt that will tie-in directly with the video games and will become canon to the events of the franchise.
No specific date has been set for when the comic or The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which will be available on next-gen consoles and PC, is expected to release.
