CD Project Red is sending a taxman after all you cheaters

The developers for Witcher 3 acknowledge money exploit in a funny way.

The Witcher 3 is a very deep and complex game, offering players hours upon hours of gameplay with meaningful side quests. But what CD Project Red added to their latest expansion— Heart of Stones might give you some laughs.

If you played Witcher 3 before, you might have heard of 'The White Orchard’ money exploit. This exploit made players massacre cows then selling their hide to rack up easy money. If you took part of this exploit beware, CD Project Red has made a taxman to hunt you down.

Mitty the taxman will randomly find you, which will call for a little cutscene. During this time, Mitty will ask you whether or not if you took part of the exploit. If you honestly admit to your crimes Mitty will give you a diploma of honesty; if you say that you never took part in the exploit Mitty won't penalize you, even if you did.

Either way, the consequences aren’t harsh, it's just funny to see a developer make fun of a community cheat. Have you taken part of the exploit? Let us know in the comments below!
