Witcher 3: Blood And Wine release date may have been leaked

Blood and Wine is the second, and unfortunately final DLC for the Witcher 3, a game that I've come to absolutely adore, despite it being somewhat flawed.

The expansion is officially slated to arrive sometime in the first half of 2016, and if the Polish gaming site GRYOnline is to be believed, the actual release date is June 7. GRYOnline has since then removed it from its listing, but WCCFTech has managed to capture a screenshot beforehand that clearly shows the supposed release date.

While June certainly fulfills the "first half of 2016" criteria, it is completely possible that the release date listed is either a placeholder, or that GRYOnline got their information from a bad source, and then decided to pull it after realizing their mistake. Naturally, there is also the option that its completely true, which wouldn't be much of a surprise given the current lack of information on Blood and Wine, which to me indicates that its release is going to be closer to the middle of the year than where we are now.

As for Blood and Wine, it will take Geralt on a 20 hour trip across an entirely new in-game region of Toussaint, an area of the world that's completely untouched by the ravages of war, and where carefree indulgence and knightly rituals hide an ancient and bloody secret. Hopefully it ends up being a worthy final adventure for one of my favorite fictional characters.

If CDPR decides to either confirm or deny this rumor I'll make sure to update you, but for now take this with not just a grain of salt, but an entire sack.
