Why Geralt Doesn’t Have Two Swords in Netflix’s Witcher Photos

Netflix has revealed new photos featuring the cast of the upcoming Witcher series, with costumed first looks at Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), Ciri, and Yennefer. But one thing, in particular, may stand out to eagle-eyed Witcher fans. Geralt’s swords -- or lack thereof.

What Alan Wake’s Acquisition by Remedy Could Mean for Alan Wake 2

Earlier this morning it was revealed that Remedy Entertainment has acquired the publishing rights to Alan Wake, which was, of course, the supernatural detective game it developed exclusively for the Xbox 360 back in 2010. The rights were previously held by Microsoft.

Although the original Alan Wake was a critical success - it has an extremely respectable 83 on Metacritic - it struggled enough commercially that a sequel wasn’t immediately greenlit by Microsoft (it received a spin-off in 2012’s An American Nightmare, but not a full-blown Alan Wake 2). Throughout the years, however, it developed something of a cult status, with callouts from fans for a sequel gradually boiling to a fever pitch.
