Brandon Sanderson suggests he'd give CD Projekt the rights to make a MISTBORN game for free

On a recent Reddit thread, fantasy author Brandon Sanderson has suggested he'd consider giving the rights to his Mistborn novel series to Polish developers CD Projekt Red for free.

CD Projekt Red (CDPR) have achieved tremendous success in adapting the Witcher novels and short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski into a trilogy of best-selling and critically-acclaimed video games. CDPR are now working on Cyberpunk 2077, an adaptation of Mike Pondsmith's popular pen-and-paper science fiction roleplaying game.

Sanderson has so far written six Mistborn novels with a seventh due in the next couple of years, with two further trilogies in the same world to follow. The Mistborn series is part of Sanderson's wider Cosmere multiverse of different worlds and stories with some interlinking elements.

So far, CDPR have not responded to the offer, and with their hands full with Cyberpunk 2077 it's not something that's going to happen any time soon.
