We’re not sure there are many gamers left, who consider themselves a fan of open-world RPGs, that haven’t invested a few dozen hours into The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But if you’ve been living under a rock for the last 13 months, CD Projekt Red is about to make it much easier for you to catch up on one of 2015’s best games, along with the smorgasbord of DLC released after launch.

Early Monday morning, a new report about a Game of the Year repackaging for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt appeared on popular European gaming site Eurogamer. The story pointed to a new listing from the German ratings board, spotted on Tuesday by a Twitter user, which suggested The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would get the usual GOTY treatment we see for most major AAA releases. As an added bonus, the site reportedly confirmed the project’s existence with a separate source, who claimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt GOTY will head to stores in August.

On its own, the report likely would’ve been enough for anyone holding out for such a release to start squirreling away their spare cash. But it only took a few hours for the site to get confirmation from CD Projekt Red. There’s still no word on an official release date, other than Eurogamer’s 8/26 projection, but (assuming the launch price is $59.99) it sounds like waiting about a month to pick up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will save you $15 on Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.
