New Game Plus is coming to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, according to the game's official Twitter account.

It is unclear as yet how NG+ will operate in The Witcher 3, but given that the announcement image features a literal pile of weapons and armour, it seems likely that players will be able to carry their gear over into the mode.

New Game Plus, which enables players to replay missions with a powered-up version of their character, has been a popular addition to games like Dark Souls, the Batman: Arkham titles, and Dead Space.

Breaking with CD Projekt Red's weekly DLC release schedule, the NG+ DLC will not be released this week, as the developer needs "a bit more time to finish it."
