Oddly, this appears to be a programming oversight on MS part.

This game was a free Games With Gold title the second half of January 2015.

I wonder how many other GwG titles accidentally re-free each year?...

It's also possible that it's a glitch while updating the game to be Xbox One compatible. Last month they announced this game was going to be added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list in the future.

I'd be very happy if I end up being able to download this on my XB1! Let's hope that this is the case.

Beware while combat is greatly improved between Witcher 1 & 2 there is still asignificant difference in mechanics between 2 & 3 (2 still requires potions to be mixed/used before battle, etc.)

I wonder if this is a new free game that is permanently discounted, or a glitch. If it's a glitch, expect to have your XBL account banned forever.

Banned forever cause MS screwed something up?
Yep sounds like MS.

Doubt that would happen, but if it does MS would have a ton of bad press over it.

Thanks a bunch OP! Recently beat the Witcher 3 and I've never played 1 or 2. Might as well give it a shot whenever it comes to BC.

This isn't a mistake FYI.  Nelson mentions it's for select regions until 2/5 as part of being BC.
