Now Playing: The Witcher 3: Blood & Wine - Everything You Need to Know About the Final Expansion

If you were holding out hope that CD Projekt Red had more content in store for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt beyond this month's Blood and Wine add-on, you're out of luck. Game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz told Eurogamer that Blood and Wine is indeed the final piece of post-release content for the celebrated RPG.

Asked if players could expect any further content updates after Blood and Wine, Tomaszkiewicz said, "No, this is the last thing we deliver" as the developer's sights shift to Cyberpunk 2077.

CD Projekt Red isn't packing up and walking away from The Witcher 3 completely, however. Tomaszkiewicz said the developer will continue to release patches to fix bugs in the main game and expansions. You can expect a patch before Blood and Wine's release and "maybe one later."

Eurogamer also asked Tomaszkiewicz if PC players could expect CD Projekt Red to release the RedKit modding tools. He said he's hopeful the developer can "do something," but stopped short of confirming anything.

"I don't got such information to be honest," he said. "We want to support our community and I hope that we will do something."

In August 2015, CD Projekt Red released official modding tools for The Witcher 3 in the form of the ModKit. It's a toolsuite that allows players to modify the game in a number of crazy ways, but some fans said it's not enough. Instead, what they were expecting was a new version of CD Projekt Red's "REDkit," a more fleshed out mod tools package that's currently available for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.

It remains to be seen if this will ever be released for The Witcher 3. You can read the full Eurogamer interview here.

The 30-hour Witcher 3's Blood and Wine expansion arrives on May 31 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. For more, check out the video above and GameSpot's written coverage here. It follows the first expansion, Hearts of Stone, which launched in October 2015.

Beyond the paid expansions, CD Projekt Red released 16 pieces of free DLC for all Witcher 3 players.

No problem it is one of the best games I've ever played. It had to end some time.

@Keitha313: Witcher 2 is fine the way it is but it would be nice if they fixed Witcher 1's controls/mechanics and release them both on PS4/XB1

@gamingdevil800: Ah I don't see why they wouldn't want to follow the same open world gameplay style for the first 1 and 2 chances are the large majority of gamers on console haven't ever played 1 and 2.

Take them both into that modern enjoyable play style with the great graphics Witcher 3, I know its not every nostalgic fans want but its still a very good idea.

Good. Time to tackle that Cyberpunk 2077 beast next!

This expansion looks epic though. Can't wait to play it.
