UPDATE: CD Projekt RED has confirmed that the GOTY Edition for Witcher 3 will indeed be coming this year.
“With all the free DLC and updates the game received so far, including significant changes to the game’s interface and mechanics, many gamers have asked us if we’re working on some sort of a Game of the Year Edition. I’m happy to confirm – yes, plans are in motion to release such an edition. We’ll release more details, including the release date, in the future. In the meantime, I’d like to thank every fan of the game for their support – you’re really amazing!”
Twitter user lifelower noticed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt might be getting a Game of the Year Edition, according to a listing in Germany. As you can see from the rating site, CD Projekt RED’s latest action RPG looks like it’ll be getting a GOTY Edition coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Separately, Eurogamer has also reported that sources say this edition of the game will be arriving on August 26 of this year.
‘The German age-ratings board USK has listed an entry for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Eurogamer has been told separately by a source that this game exists and will be released 26th August 2016.’
Presumably, Witcher 3’s GOTY Edition will come packed in with the two previously expansions: Hearts of Stone, and Blood and Wine. Considering the size and beefiness of those two story expansions, along with the incredibly large and detailed world of the base game itself, this would be a pretty good deal for those looking to get into Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
