The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the greatest games ever made, and Netflix wants to cash in on the popularity. A few months ago, the streaming giant revealed that it was working on a show inspired by The Witcher series. While we knew that it would feature an original story, we didn't know anything about its production values.
Luckily, that changed recently because the company released a trailer for its The Witcher show. While some gamers might object to lead actor Henry Cavill's out-of-control hair during certain scenes, the overall sense is that it's pretty epic. It seems like topics such as genocide, racism, and other social issues are touched upon in the show. Plus, there are plenty of large-scale battles. Now, you might be wondering when it's coming out.
According to a report by PC Gamer, the Redanian Intelligence spotted Netflix Netherlands' tweet about how long people would have to wait for their favorite shows to return. The post mentioned that The Witcher would premiere in 97 days, or on December 17.
While this could always be a mistake, it doesn't seem likely because Netflix Netherlands immediately deleted it. The dates for some other shows are correct so there's no reason to doubt this at the moment. However, don't get your hopes up because at the end of the day it may have just been an honest mistake. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
