The Witcher 3 for Next-Gen includes a special surprise from Henry Cavill
The new Next-Gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt It was released last week for PC, PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. One of the content it brings comes from the series of netflix witcher. Although it was something that was known, we did not mention that there is a small special Easter Egg put in the game by the developers of CD Project Red specifically for Henry Cavill, who, as you may know, is a huge fan of the game and the larger series, which initially drew him to the role of Geralt in the first place.
Taking to Twitter, Philipp Weber, acting narrative director and lead mission designer on the video game series, confirmed that the dog now in the Devil’s Pit is indeed a reference to Henry Cavill. More specifically, it’s his dog Kal, who will now settle in the area after you get one of the good endings in the game.
“With the sad news about Henry Cavill’s role as Superman today, it’s nice that we have a little chance to show our appreciation for the great passion and enthusiasm that Henry showed for The Witcher,” Weber writes..
Why Henry Cavill decided to leave the show behind remains a mystery. Many assume he went to go after Superman and other roles, but reports from those who would know suggest this had nothing to do with it. Rather, what ultimately led to Cavill leaving the show behind was creative differences between him and the show’s writers and producers, especially when it came to the portrayal of Geralt. However, these are just reports.
With Cavill gone, the show probably isn’t going to survive much longer. However, what will live forever is The Witcher 3one of the best RPGs of all time, which means this Kal easter egg will live forever.
With the sad news about Henry Cavill’s Superman role today, it’s nice that we got a little opportunity to show our appreciation for the great passion and enthusiasm Henry showed for #TheWitcher ❤️ https://t.co/qCttLlpm51
