CD PROJEKT RED and Netflix have together unveiled the full schedule for WitcherCon — the upcoming global online celebration of The Witcher franchise.
Amongst the line up, CD PROJEKT RED will be hosting numerous panels. In Memories from the Path: Stories Behind The Witcher Games, developers and key figures from the creation of The Witcher series of games discuss how they bring stories to life in digital worlds, while also reminiscing about favorite moments — and forgotten relics — from the games.

Fans will be able to watch WitcherCon across two separate streams, with each one containing some exclusive content.
