Various sources report that the Blood and Wine expansion for CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be out soon and is to be available at the end of the month.
According to the Twitter user Wario64, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s second expansion, Blood and Wine, is set to be released a couple of weeks from now on May 30. The discovery was made on the Steam page for CD Projekt Red’s action-RPG, which has now been taken down due the possibility of having been published too soon.
As seen in Wario64’s tweet found below, the Twitter user’s screenshot details the availability for The Witcher 3‘s DLC, but other fans online are reporting a slightly different release date for Blood and Wine. To be specific, some NeoGAF users have claimed that the expansion will launch a day later on May 31, for when they checked the game’s Steam page, that was the date reflected.
Since the Steam page showing Blood and Wine’s availability has been pulled, there’s no telling as to whether or not either of the release dates are legitimate. Plus, with CD Projekt Red keeping its lips sealed on the issue, we can’t officially determine whether or not we will see The Witcher 3‘s expansion come out this month.
Wow, they took the page down already. Well, here's my screencap then. pic.twitter.com/2jg0GqzpYl— Wario64 (@Wario64) May 8, 2016
Several weeks ago, a release date leak for Blood and Wine appeared on the Polish gaming website known as GRYOnline, showing that The Witcher 3‘s expansion would be sold on June 7 of this year, which further muddies the water as to when the DLC could actually become available to the public. Bearing all of this in mind, it’s important for fans to take every bit of speculation with a grain of salt.
Should May 30 or May 31 be the actual time that The Witcher 3‘s Blood and Wine drops, however, it will put an end to fans’ extremely long wait for the additional content. After all, CD Projekt Red developers initially stated the expansion was slated for release in Q1 of 2016, but later gave it a larger release window of dropping somewhere in between January and June of this year.
Considering the fact that CD Projekt Red has said its team is mostly focused on developing Cyberpunk 2077 now, The Witcher 3‘s forthcoming DLC ought to be coming out sooner rather than later, so the evidence of a May 30 release should at least be in the right ballpark. And when Blood and Wine is finally available, fans of the action-RPG will surely rejoice, not only because it’s expected to have around 20 hours of fresh gameplay, but also because it will more than likely remind players why The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is considered by many to be one of the top 10 best video games of 2015.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
