Leaks are complicated. On the flip side, they cut. On the other, they rob developers and publishers of the enormous coming out parties, a period of elation and celebration during which they're eventually able to talk about their job with the planet after years of contractual silence. Love them or hate them, escapes occur, and 2019 was no exception.

Another escape, posted to ResetEra, could occur in late May before Nintendo E3 Direct. The port will be confirmed during that Direct as The Witcher 3: Complete Edition, bundling the base game with both expansions and 16 DLC packs.
It's reveal would have been a huge surprise on Microsoft's E3 stage... had it not been leaked two days before. The data was supposedly revealed because of a connection on the website of publisher Bandai Namco that was made public. Along with spoiling Elden Ring's show, the leak outed two other E3 statements: Tales of Arise and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered for PS4 and PC (plus a Change port of the first version).
The image was confirmed to be just that. In response to a speculative article, game programmer Matthew Stott wrote at a since-deleted tweet,"It's a dev kit we've got some in the office." Assuming this is Stott's LinkedIn page, he was a senior artist in Grid developer Codemasters from August 2007 during October 2019, lending credence to his potential confirmation.
