In a quote to Eurogamer.net, game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz said: “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.”
“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.

If you haven’t experienced The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt game in all its glory, this edition will cover it all. The adventures of Geralt, Ciri, Triss, and Yennifer will engage you for hours…and hours..and hours. The base game is huge, and throwing the 2 DLC packs in will add approximately 45 hours of gameplay to the potentially 25-200 hours in the base game. If you chase down all the side quests, like I did, you’ll be reveling in this one for a long, long time.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Game of the Year Edition will be available for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. There are unconfirmed rumors that it will be released on August 26th, 2016.
