Right after its initial release The Witcher 3 received universal critical acclaim and was dubbed by many as the one of the best RPGs. A few days have gone by since the game officially received modding support. The step was great and was met with enthusiasm by the many fans of the franchise however not all viewed the development in the same light. “Modkit” saw a release on Friday, but many fans are not happy with the available tools.
As Gamespot explains, the toolsuit allows a player to modify the game in many unique manners. The lack of satisfaction is partly due to the fact that player were expecting a version of “REDkit,” that is currently available for The Witcher 2.
In an interview with IGN last year CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski said that the developers were “looking to release the REDkit sometime after [The Witcher 3] launches for the modding community.” Hence the expectation bars were set high which the developer has been as of yet unable to deliver.
CD Projekt Red said along side release of the Modkit “the modding tools we are releasing are not an editor. They’re meant for people who are somewhat experienced with modding software and are designed to make creating mods easier.”
After a fans inquiry about the matter Marcin Momot explained that the developers had not made any plans for a new release of any-sort
@MeerMusik This is the mod support for the Wild Hunt. At this moment we are not planning to release anything else.

The developers have indeed engendered the wrath of many fans. Parts of the gaming community believes that the developers failed to deliver what they had promised and at often times we see people comparing the franchise with Skyrim. However there are also many who have shown satisfaction with CD Projekt Red’s efforts.
Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine are the two expansion packs that have been planned and are in development with Hearts of Stone being expected to be released in October 2015. Blood and Wine is expected to appear in early 2016.
