In case you were one of the few who missed out on last years The Witcher 3, fear not for CD Projekt Red has said that a Game of the Year Edition will be released later this year.

In a recent article from Eurogamer, the initial source came from the German age ratings board (USK), which listed an entry for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition. After contacting CD Projekt Red, game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz went on to confirm the rumor, stating that the title was in development. 

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.” – Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, Eurogamer

While Konrad said that he will be releasing more details a little later, Eurogamer has been told from an unknown source that the game will be released August 26th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. While the details regarding special preorder editions are still unknown, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition is presumed to include all the free DLC, updates, and expansions. 

In other related news, this year at CD Projekt Red has announced a standalone release for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. Released initially as a mini-game within The Witcher 3, the title is slated for release on Xbox One and Windows 10. While no news as of yet in regards to a smartphone or PlayStation 4 version, registrations are currently up to those wishing to participate in the upcoming Beta.

    Glad I waited and didn’t bought it on Summer Sale.

  • Jim

    Please tell me it’s not Win10 exclusive, I don’t want M$ to be spying on my PC.

  • Cytos Lpagtr

    though for the few stragglers who did not get it yet, this game is very worth the default asking price for game and dlc separatly. best damn rpg i every touched, and every payed piece of dlc really delivers! but ye, its always nice to have a better deal ofc

  • Street Spirit

    Wait what does this actually mean? I bought it on summer sale like an idiot.

  • Reptile

    Well it is not bad, because it still is a great game and you got on a discount. I almost bought but I haven’t beated the first two and I have this thing where I must complete a game before playing the sequel.

  • Street Spirit

    That’s exactly my mindset. I’m also going to play first two games first and haven’t even installed the third one. Will this goty edition features be available as purchasable items? If not, refunding it will be wiser I suppose.

  • Reptile

    I don’t know, probably they will roll the interface and etc updates to the base game too, put everything in the GOTY pack and that is it, probably like Saints Row IV did, if you got the expansions too I think it is not worth the hassle to ask for a refund and then wait to buy it again (specially since they can “update” the price up because it now includes expansion).

  • Street Spirit

    Yeah it makes a lot sense that way. Thanks for clearing it up my fellow MK fan, much appreciated.
