A new expansion is coming to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2016, and developer CD Projekt Red claims it’s going to top the already critically-acclaimed title.

“Blood and Wine is an independent history, not tied in particularly closely with the main plot of the Wild Hunt. With our experience and feedback received since the game is on sale, we believe we have achieved something even better than the main game,” CD Projekt Red’s Senior Story Writer Jakub Szamalek said in a translated interview. “For example, we believe that they failed in Wild Hunt to create a charismatic enemy with which to beat us, and then we worked to make unique and memorable opponent of this expansion. We also created a rather complex story that we believe players will appreciate.We are quite satisfied with the work, but we know that we can do even better.”

Szamalek confirmed this expansion for The Witcher 3 will be the final tale for main character Geralt.

“With Blood and Wine will try to close, at least for a while, the universe of The Witcher. It will be the last adventure of Geralt as a main character. But beyond that there is still nothing written in stone. Blood and Wine will be our conclusion of the story of Geralt, then it’s time to focus with all the energy of Cyberpunk 2077.”
