The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine won’t be released anytime soon

Witcher 3 Blood and Wine

Last year we was absolutely blown away by what CD Projekt Red had managed to accomplish with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Looking past the enormity of the game world, the side-quests were actually interesting and didn’t consist merely of errands involving killing 10 wolves or fetching 5 flowers. The first paid DLC, entitled Hearts of Stone, was released in October last year and was widely praised for expanding on everything that made the base game so popular. Fans have been clamouring to get their hands on the second DLC, Blood and Wine, for a few months now, but although it was initially slated for a Q1 release for this year, that time-frame has since been expanded to sometime in the first half of 2016. Many believed that the DLC would release in March, but a tweet from the official Witcher Twitter account seems to indicate that it may be running a bit behind schedule.

So it looks like we’ll have to endure a few months before we hear anything new about this expansion but based on what we know so far, I think it will be worth the wait. Blood and Wine promises to add another 20 hours worth of gameplay, as well as brand new area called Toussaint, so if they need to take a little extra time to ensure the game lives up to the extremely high standards that CDPR has set for themselves, so be it. Until then though, there are still many (MANY!) side-quests waiting for me to complete, so I’m at no risk of boredom anytime soon.
