In my https://www.gog.com/account, I see I have The Witcher: Enhanced Edition but it doesn't say Director's Cut.
Mine does not say Director's Cut at gog.com/account
But in the GOG Galaxy launcher it doe say Director's Cut when viewing my library of owned games.
Thanks. So, TW:EE is bascially DC.

In one fell swoop they get a free game, used to the idea of DRM- free, exposed to GOG, and are excited for new games by a stellar company.

And then promptly scared off the whole concept by that damn camera no doubt!

Yep, I did all that was suggested and still no update or offer. I guess I will have contact support.

Edit, they finally pushed the update to me. It appeared from no where at 4:20 Sat.

Apparently GoG Galaxy pushed the update to me later in the day as I just logged in and was prompted to update.

They give it away every year because every year they , I would assume at least, bring in brand new pc gamers who probably never heard of the Witcher. Up to that point they had probably only played Peggle and the like. In one fell swoop they get a free game, used to the idea of DRM- free, exposed to GOG, and are excited for new games by a stellar company.

I found it in the store, even though I already own it I was given the option to gift it to someone. So that is cool as well.

I had to manually update my client. When I opened it, I had a small notice at the bottom of the window that said it couldn't auto-update. After manual update, the free Witcher showed up on the "Recent" tab with a Claim button.

Sales must still be pretty decent on 2 since they've given the first away several times but not the second.
I actually got the 2nd one free also. If memory serves it was one of their last real, creative sales. It was some kind of strange Flash sale,
where you buy $15(?) worth of games and get a free random game. I remember thinking The Witcher 2 had only been out for a year, so it must have been 2012?
I obviously had no problem buying The Witcher 3 at GOG after receiving 1 & 2 for free. Gift Cheerleading

Oddly enough, the first one is the only one I've paid for. I got the 2nd one for free. I just checked, it was some kind of giveaway in the fall of 2014. The discount on the receipt shows "DISCOUNT – XA - BIG FALL STAMPS GIVEAWAY - THE WITCHER 2". The first one was on sale for $1.49 during the following winter sale, so I went ahead and bought it since I got the 2nd one free. Then I got the 3rd one free with a GPU.
That must have been it, thanks for the memory jog!

Marvin T. Martian, sorry don't have galaxy installed atm, new OS installed recently. RedEye9's idea sounds like the best idea or you could send a request for help from GOG Support?

There is really no reason you probably wouldn't have gotten 1 and 2 at some point. 1 is usually free or 1 dollar on steam sales and 2 is around 3 dollars on steam sales. For that matter, unless you really have zero interest, you probably own 3 which is usually 15 bucks on sale on Steam often. If I didn't already own it and played it to death, I would say it's a gem of a purchase on this day with all that it has to offer. The Next Gen edition will be dropping soon and I believe is a free upgrade for those that own it already. That should be enough incentive to replay it again. I know I will!

Probably giving it away because Cyberpunk pre-orders are insane.
ok
But then what was their reason for when they give it away before.

Actually I wasn't paying attention and thought it was The Witcher 3.
