After a listing on the German age-ratings board USK revealed the existence of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, developer CD Projekt RED has confirmed it is indeed in the works.
"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a gigantic effort for the entire studio, and both the team and me were amazed by the good reception of Geralt's adventures. Since launch, we've released two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, which added a lot of new adventures to the already potent mix," said Game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz to Eurogamer.
"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!"
This should come as no surprise considering that the last two games in the trilogy received enhanced editions a year or so after release. While no price has been mentioned, we won't be surprised to see it maintain the same Rs. 3,499 price on the PS4 and Xbox One and Rs. 1,499 on the PC - akin to what the base game launched at last year.
No release date has been either, although sources speaking to Eurogamer claim it will be out in August. Makes sense considering the September to November release window is filled to the brim with new games such as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, FIFA 17, Gears of War 4, and Titfanfall 2.
