CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released one year ago today. To celebrate the RPG's first birthday, the developer released an image of characters and creatures from the game having a big party.

Hero Geralt is at the center, raising a mug and toasting the occasion. A cake with a massive "1" candle is seen at the center table, while characters like Ciri, Yennefer, Triss, and Vesemir are all standing around having a good time. There are even what appear to be Gwent cards on the table.

In the past year, The Witcher 3 has shipped around 10 million copies, helping CD Projekt Red post a profit.

The game's first paid expansion, Hearts of Stone, came out in October. The next add-on, Blood and Wine, is slated to arrive on May 31. It is set in a new region called Toussaint, and there are more than 90 new quests and 40 new points of interest to explore. Overall, the content should offer around 30 hours of gameplay.

You won't have to wait too long to play the next title from CD Projekt Red, as the Polish developer will release a new game later this year. Interestingly, the unannounced game will be a "new type of video game format previously unexplored by the studio."

CD Projekt Red is also working on Cyberpunk 2077, which is due to come out in the 2017-2021 window. As for The Witcher series, CD Projekt Red has not ruled out returning to it someday, but it's unlikely to happen soon.
