CD PROJECT RED, the geniuses behind The Witcher series, has just revealed new logos both for their upcoming game and their studio.

The Witcher 3 PS4 Version To Feature Improved Resolution Over Xbox One?  

This new logo features the Wild Hunt centered in the image, along with the mask of General Eredin. General Eredin Bréacc Glas is the leader of an elven calvary known as Dearg Ruadhri, which means "Red Riders" or "Red Horsemen", but in the human world he's known and feared as the King of the Wild Hunt.  Confused about what the Wild Hunt is in the first place? Here's their thoughts on it.

"The Wild Hunt has always been thought to presage war, great plagues and death. Their origin unknown, these ghastly riders instilled fear in the hearts of men and are believed to be able to steal people’s spirits that would later join the cavalcade. They come at night, in the winter and their appearance is always preceded by the aurora borealis."

"In The Witcher 3, the Wild Hunt are not mere bosses at the end of a corridor. They’re part of the lore, part of the system of folk beliefs, they’re both something that children say stories about to scare each other and an entity that can wipe out entire villages in one night. The Wild Hunt is essential to the whole Witcher universe and in The Witcher 3 it will finally take center stage.

The ones who command the Hunt remain a mystery even bigger than the Hunt itself. Their number and purpose are shrouded with mystery, their cold steel however is not—many have witnessed the Hunt’s atrocities, almost none survived to tell the tale."

Not to be outdone, CD Projekt RED has released this new logo for their studio. It features the new REDbird logo, which shows off their passion for being rebels, and capitalizing words however the hell they want.

"We are rebels and rebels are free. Just like birds," said Adam Badowski, CD PROJEKT RED's Head of Studio. "The Northern Cardinal, or REDbird, is what we see ourselves in the industry: intrepid, bold and confident; flying high and aiming even higher. The color, cardinal RED, is something that connects it with another bird, a mythological creature close to our cultural roots and heritage-the Rarog, a small firebird believed to bring luck to people. RED stands for energy, the inner fire that drives us; it represents something very close to everyone here in the studio-the creativity and passion we harness from within ourselves to make the best RPGs in the world."

Expect much more info on the game soon. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is scheduled to hit Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in February, 2015.
