Earlier this week, Eurogamer Italy published an interview with CD Projekt RED (translated by OnlySP) in which the developer was quoted as saying that The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine expansion will be better than the base game. In a new interview with GameSpot, Marketing Lead Michal Platkow-Gilewski has clarified those comments, stating that the upcoming expansion will feel “more refined” because it is “the sum of all experiences” the studio gained when creating Wild Hunt. However, that doesn’t make Blood and Wine necessarily better. He further said:
I wouldn’t point fingers at what’s better separately, as each addition to Wild Hunt (including over 10 updates we’ve released so far) enriches the overall experience you get from The Witcher as a game in general. “he base game with the expansions is simply better than without them.
The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine is set to release in the first half of this year.
