Rebel Wolves, a new game studio founded by former developers of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3, has revealed the name and the first image of its debut project: Dawnwalker, a dark fantasy RPG built on Unreal Engine 5.
Dawnwalker is a story-driven RPG saga set in a medieval world where vampires and other supernatural creatures exist. The game will feature a rich and immersive narrative, written by Jakub Szamałek, Rebel Wolves’ Co-Founder and Narrative Director, who also contributed to The Witcher 3.
The game’s title and the first wallpaper suggest that the game will have a vampire-themed setting, as the term “daywalker” is often used to describe vampires who can withstand sunlight. The wallpaper shows a warrior with a sword and a clawed hand, leaping through the air against a blood-red sky. Behind him, a dark cloud of smoke follows, possibly indicating his ability to transform into mist. Above him, a golden symbol of a sun and a moon balanced on a scale hints at the game’s theme of duality and balance.
Who are Rebel Wolves?
Rebel Wolves is a new game studio based in Warsaw, Poland, founded by former developers of CD Projekt Red, the company behind the critically acclaimed Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3.

When will Dawnwalker be released?
Rebel Wolves has not announced a release date or a target platform for Dawnwalker yet, as the game is still in the early stages of development.
