With the upcoming Blood and Wine expansion for The Witcher, we´re pretty sure that the RPG will harvest even more awards. The Blood and Wine expansion is scheduled for a release in the first half of 2016. According to CD Projekt Red´s community manager, Marcin Momot, the expansion will feature "awesome" changes. One of those changes might be the completely new soundtrack for the expansion, written from scratch. The game´s composer said as much during a recent interview with Gamepressure.
" Yes, Mikolai will be back in the new expansion, we also have a new composer on board – Piotrek Musial, who is behind music for games of 11 bit studios, including This War of Mine that received multiple awards. The three of us are working on the music for Blood and wine, and it will be completely new. We’re not using any pieces that were written before, because we get a completely new area, new characters, and a new plot. They deserve to have their music written from scratch", explained Witcher 3 composer, Marcin Przybylowicz.
