Original Story:

On Twitter, CD Projekt Red Community Lead Marcin Momot said that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt update 1.12 was expected to be available later today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Patch notes will be released alongside the update, so stay tuned for full details once they’re available.

Over the weekend, a listing was discovered for something called The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Enhanced Edition. According to CD Projekt Red’s Michal PG, “There’s no Enhanced Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that we are aware of, this is some kind of error that we will look into.”

When asked on Twitter about the possibility of an Enhanced Edition (as they did for The Witcher and The Witcher 2), or a Game of the Year Edition, the official game account replied, “Unfortunately we have no news to share about this right now.”

The official account also said they’re looking into a quest glitch with Scavenger Hunt: School of the Wolf.

Blood and Wine, the second expansion for The Witcher 3, is still scheduled for release in the first half of 2016.
