I'll say amen to that! A GOTY/Enhanced Edition is pretty much a moral obligation on their part given the amount of (fully justified) praise the game has enjoyed over the year since launch. :wub:Actually I think they are working on it as we speak.I had read somewhere in an interview that they might have a few surprises left after Blood and Wine.I swear if they put out a GOTY Enhanced Edition i will buy it again day one.
The most awarded game of all time needs the GOTY edition it deserves to be a game you'll be able to play after 10-20 or 30 years
Hear, hear, cheers all around for an Enhanced Edition! :cheers2:Enhanced Edition all the way, just as they did for the previous games, which was a brilliant and back then unprecedented move. Bring on some more :eredin: and :victory:! Hoping they are still a studio as awesome and invested in improving their own work as they were back in the day ^-^
Those are some new gameplay features and not what this thread is about at all! :smiling:What technical advancements are we talking about? The new mutation system and the ability to dye armor? Sure, I guess it would be nice if those things were available in the base game, but I don't really see it as world changing. They could probably just patch it in.
I know exactly what you mean, my friend!Sure, that would be nice. But I'd like a third expansion or fourth game even more.
You are absolutely right, an Enhanced Edition would make a lot of sense from a financial perspective as well.I'm pretty sure they're going to do it eventually. Contrary to what some people believe, there is a lot of incentive for CDPR to do this:
1) The Witcher 3 is an immensely popular game that will be played by many gamers for a very long time; especially on PC. Games can remain viable for many years after launching on the PC platform. CDPR knows this, so it's in their financial interest to give the Witcher 3 the longest legs they can. Especially since they earn an enormous profit from it on GoG.
2) It's a matter of pride. They will never fully escape the downgrade controversy that tainted the Witcher 3's launch until they redo the entire game's assets with the updated engine capabilities.
There's also the question of performance. The base game suffered massive performance issues on the consoles for months after launch. The new engine updates helped to improve performance dramatically for B&W on the consoles, so these should definitely be rolled into the main game if they want to cultivate themselves as a true AAA multi platform developer.
