Witcher 3 - CDP Red Regrets Not Talking More About Ciri's Tattoo

Witcher 3 was one of the greatest successes of CD Projekt Red. Co-writer of the game Jakub Szamalek still regrets that his team did not have enough time to tell the story of Ciri's tattoo.

Some tatoos have interesting stories behind them, some embarassing, yet others are just a whim. And then there's Ciri's.

Several years have passed since the launch of The Witcher 3. The game of the Polish studio is one of the most recognized games ever created, as evidenced by the record numbers of players around the world and many prestigious awards. It would seem that the CDP Red team has reached the peak of every artist's dreams, but one of the main scriptwriters, Jakub Szamalek, regrets that no separate plotline in the game has been written to tell the story of Ciri's tattoo. The only thing we learn in the game is that the tattoo of the white-haired heroine was a memento of someone who died. Its exact origin of can only be found in the books by Andrzej Sapkowski.

In an interview published in PC Gamer magazine (issue 388), Szamalek explains that unfortunately his team did not have time to transfer the story to one of the episodes of Wild Hunt, and he sincerely regrets it. He adds that this story would shed some light on the earlier fate of the character.

At this point in her life, Ciri embraced her darker side, following her worst instincts. It would be a great story to show her transformation and the associated remorse. Maybe we can come back to this in the future, said the chief scriptwriter.

Those who have read the books already the shory behind the tatoo. To avoid significant spoilers for those who didn't, let's just say that Ciri had a girlfriend and that the romance was cut short by one bounty hunter called Leo.
