Regular Witcher 3 Console Saves Aren’t Compatible With Upcoming GOTY Edition

The fantastic RPG called The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (and its two equally fantastic expansions) will be all gathered into one collection in the form of The Witcher 3: Game of the Year edition later this month, and now we’re getting some more information about it. We always knew that it would contain all additional content and patches, but there are also some little quirks to it that might not be the greatest news for some gamers.

It has been revealed by developer CD Projekt RED’s community coordinator that save files between the regular version and the upcoming game of the year version are not compatible. This means that those who completed the main game but held out on all DLC due to waiting for the GOTY edition are out of luck, as they’ll have to start all over.

Community coordinator Marcin Momot says that “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.”

The game will also feature its own separate achievement/trophy list, so at least fans will be able to rack up some more achievements/trophies if they’re into that sort of thing. The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 30th.
