Andrej Sapkowski, the author of The Witcher books, never showed interest in the adaptations made by CD Projekt RED. With the work done by Netflix, fans thought that the Polish writer would give a chance to the games of the witch Geralt. However, nothing has changed and Sapkowski has no desire to dive into the franchise's games.

In an interview with the Gizmodo website, Sapkowski explained that he was never a fan of video games and, therefore, was not interested in experiencing the productions made by CD Projekt RED.

He also said that it is impossible to compare series with games due to the differences inherent in the development of the projects.

Since I was a kid, I haven't played much - except for bridge and poker. Video games are not for me, I prefer books as entertainment. Even so, the series and games cannot be compared. They have different approaches and objectives. You can't compare a carbonara spaghetti to a bicycle. Even though both have advantages and disadvantages.

In an interview with Vice in 2017 , Sapkowski revealed that he does not believe in video games as a way of expressing "deep or sophisticated language that can elevate culture" .

Although the writer is not an avid fan of the games, CD Projekt RED has entered into a new partnership with Sapkowski to have creative rights to The Witcher franchise.

The contract did not provide monetary details, but the studio will be able to create "video games, graphic novels, boardgames and merchandise in general".
