    The Witcher series, crowned with Game of the Year nominations and awards, began as a much simpler story before it became the epic saga gamers know it as today. Writer Andzrej Sapkowski created the series back in 1986 by entering a short story, titled "Wiedźmin," into a contest held by a Polish magazine which netted him a third place prize. Sapkowski continued writing about the fabled Geralt of Rivia and in 2002, CD Projekt got permission to develop a game based on Sapkowski's series of novels and CD Projekt RED was formed to lead production of the game. The Witcher didn't see its release until 5 years later in 2007, but it has grown into one of the most memorable experiences in video game history.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out on May 19, 2015 and went on to win numerous Game of the Year awards for 2015. Given the reception the game received, it's no surprise that rumors surrounding an Enhanced Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt wouldn't be far off. European retailers SmartToys and E.Leclerc let some information slip on their online stores that specifically list a product titled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Enhanced Edition for each platform.

    CD Projekt RED added bonus content to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt after its release, and they have previously developed an Enhanced Edition of prior games in the series. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings got its own Enhanced Edition release in April of 2012, which added over 10GB of new content including several hours of gameplay, a new game mode, and many fixes and improvements to the game. The Witcher also received an Enhanced Edition release in September of 2008. CD Projekt RED has not confirmed whether or not these rumors are true or not, but if they continue their trend from earlier releases, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will almost certainly see an Enhanced Edition release.

    If these rumors are accurate, fans of The Witcher could see an Enhanced Edition for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as early as February 5, 2016.

    I don't see a need for an enhanced edition since the game is already out.

      That's a straight copy-paste from their response on Twitter. I still don't buy it and I think they are nearly done with the Enhanced Edition. They announced The Witcher 2's Enhanced Edition in January 2012 after the game was released in May 2011. The Witcher 3 was released in May 2015, so it's not too far-off to think that the Enhanced Edition might get announced this month or next.

    Was rather saddened that my GPU could not keep up with this game, really wanted to try it out. Laptops gonna be laptops though. Can't wait to build something with a much higher budget. Maybe then I will repurchase this game.

    I don't see the point of an enhanced edition.

    Unless they are going to give the finger to everyone that owns the game and not apply the fixes and etc to the normal edition of the game and force them to get the enhanced edition to get the fixes and access to the additional content, whatever that may be.

      I hope that is the case. Because it would be pretty crappy of them to make a new edition that fixes a bunch of issues within the game and don't release it to the original edition owners.

      CDPR are not the kind of people to do that. If they come out with an Enhanced Edition, it will be free to people who already own the game, just as it was with The Witcher and The Witcher 2.

      The way it should be, Feyfolken.

    Actually, CDPR says the listing is some sort of error by the site and they have no knowledge of an Enhanced Edition.

      Well, of course. There was still a couple of retailers that posted it and I don't think they'd post that without a good reason. Where did they mention it? I'm not seeing anything on Twitter.

      I'm not surprised that they wouldn't want the news out. Even Sony had the PS4 price reduction leaked via Target, so this kind of thing happens pretty often. Regardless, I'm excited for an Enhanced Edition of the game if they decide to make one. Hopefully, I get a PC that's able to run it in ultra before it comes out.

    Hm, I'll have to see what's in this if this is true.

    I loved this game, can't wait to see what type of stuff they add.
    And I would support it again in a heart-beat.

      The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition was released for free for anyone who already had the game. Anyone who owned it just downloaded the update and they were able to play it on release date. I don't think CD Projekt RED would make their fans buy The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt again just for the Enhanced Edition, so you wouldn't need to support them again. But, I would buy the game again, too. :tongue:
