In a January 2017 interview, producer Guo Jingyu explained why he produced a television series based on a wuxia novel which already has more than 10 earlier adaptations. He said that he is dissatisfied with many of the wuxia television series produced in recent years, and wanted to remake the 1983 Hong Kong television series The Legend of the Condor Heroes, which he enjoyed watching, for younger generations of viewers.

I'm not the type that always prefers the old to the new. I quite embrace new versions. However, this rendition of Condor Heroes was a waste of my life. No depth in conversations, very annoying acting. They cut out alot of lore and background, so I doubt this is a good watch for those new to the Condor Heroes franchise. The sad fact is that this drama focused completely on CGI and action scenes but skipped EVERYTHING else. There are however even faults with the action scenes! For a Martial Arts film, all it did for every episode was fist fights... All the types of martial arts, and focus on skills and training were thrown out of the window. Basically everyone more or less fought the same, taking away the fun of watching each style of martial art being represented. Nice sceneries and backgrounds were its only saving grace. If not this would have been 1/10.
