The studio confirmed the project earlier today in a statement to popular gaming website Polygon.
“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,’” said game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz. “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.”
The existence of the project was first reported by Eurogamer, after an age rating for the edition was spotted on the German ratings board’s website. Eurogamer further went on to report the release date for the The Witcher 3 GOTY edition as Aug. 26. A CD Projekt Red representative refutes this though, stating that the studio “currently [doesn’t] have any details to share on when it will be released.”
The Witcher 3 hit PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One back in May of 2015. Since its initial release, CD Projekt Red have released two expansions for the game: Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. I would say it’s safe to speculate a ‘Game of the Year Edition’ would include both of the aforementioned expansions, as well as the 21 free pieces of downloadable content.
