It looks like we’ll have to wait just a little bit longer to play the final act of Geralt’s journey.
CD Projekt Red has just sent out a letter to the press and fans alike announcing another delay for The Witcher 3. Originally planned to release on February 24th, the team has decided they need another 12 weeks of development time for the game to make sure it’s the best experience possible. The Witcher 3 will now release on May 19th, 2015.
You can read the official response from CD Projekt Red just below:
The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production. Now, nearing the end of our work, we see many details that need to be corrected. When we release the most important game in our studio’s history, we must be absolutely sure that we did everything we could to limit any bugs to a level that will allow you to enjoy the game thoroughly.
With this in mind, we took another look at current workloads and what they mean for the team. Even though everyone is working at full speed, we concluded that we need another 12 weeks, so we are shifting the release date of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt toMay 19th, 2015.
We owe you an apology. We set the release date too hastily. It’s a hard lesson, one to take to heart for the future. We know what we want to do to make Wild Hunt one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that. So, we apologize and ask for your trust.
