A Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition is coming, we just don't know when

The Witcher 3 earned tons of praise when it launched, then again when its two DLC adventures, Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine, were released. So perhaps it's little surprise that a Game of the Year Edition of Geralt's final adventure is on the way, as confirmed by a statement made by developer CD Projekt RED to Eurogamer.

"I'm happy to confirm - yes, plans are in motion to release such an edition," game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz said. "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!"

The statement was made after Twitter user lifelower spotted a rating for The Witcher 3: GOTY Edition online. Unfortunately, there's no indication as to what a GOTY Edition would contain - I'd say the DLC is at least a given, but dare we hope for more Gwent decks? Either way, kudos to CDPR for admitting to the game's existence instead of just tossing out the old "no comment" line, and hopefully we'll learn more soon.
