The Witcher 3 is one of the most critically acclaimed role-playing games to come out in recent years, and developers had already previously announced a Game Of The Year Edition for the title. Now, it has been revealed that the upcoming GOTY release of the game will not support save files from the regular version of the game on consoles.
This announcement comes courtesy of Marcin Momot, Community Lead at CD Projekt Red, who issued a statement saying “The save files on consoles won’t be compatible between different game versions (GOTY vs regular version) as they are treated by systems as separate products. This is something that’s not up to us. Sorry.”
He then went on to say that save files for the PC would be compatible, and that a new patch for the game was on it’s way.

The Witcher 3 Game Of The Year Edition will be getting a retail release as well as a digital one and will include the full base game as well as both of the game’s expansions, Heart of Stone and Blood and Wine.
The Game Of The Year Edition is set for release on 30th August for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC.
