The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red is planning to release a Game of the Year Edition of the open-world action game, the studio confirmed today in a statement to 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 news was first reported by Eurogamer, after a rating for such an edition was spotted on USK, the German ratings board. Citing an anonymous source, Eurogamer reports that The Witcher 3’s Game of the Year Edition will be available Aug. 26, although a CD Projekt Red representative told Polygon that the studio "currently [doesn’t] have any details to share on when it will be released."

The Witcher 3 debuted in May 2015 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. CD Projekt Red has released two expansions for the game: Hearts of Stone in October, and Blood and Wine this past May. A Game of the Year Edition would presumably include both of those paid add-ons, as well as all of the game’s free downloadable content.
