The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the biggest hits of gaming of the year. And the hits are still to come. Recently, developer CD Projekt RED released the game’s first massive expansion with Hearts of Stone last October. The next expansion for the game, Blood and Wine is due out next year. The Witcher 3 Game Director Konrad Tomaskiewicz recently released a statement on the wild success of The Witcher 3 this year, and CD Projekt Red released a new “epic” trailer featuring a lot of the game’s amazing money shots, which you can check out below.
Speaking on the game’s success, Tomaskiewicz stated: “This year was really epic for the entire crew behind The Witcher. We launched Wild Hunt, the RPG we’ve been working on for so long, then we’ve gone above and beyond to give gamers as many free DLC as we could, and then released Hearts of Stone, which – judging from player feedback – took the game even further. And we innovated all along the way — if you compare Wild Hunt to our previous game, almost every element was improved or changed. Now we’re working on Blood and Wine, the final expansion for Wild Hunt which we will launch in 2016. To thank everyone for being with us this whole time, we’ve prepared something special — enjoy the Epic Trailer!”
The success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is paying in dividends. The game is currently up for six nominations for The Game Awards 2015. CD Projekt RED is also up for Developer of the Year.
