The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is getting a Game of the Year edition according to developer CD Projekt Red.

No release date or pricing details have been announced, but the studio did confirm that a GOTY edition is coming, and that it will include the title's expansions (Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone) as well as the title's many free updates.

Here's a statement sent to us from game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz:

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 & 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. In the meantime, I'd like to thank every fan of the game for their support – you're really amazing!
