Previously announced as a 2015 Qtr 1 launch, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from the talented development team at CD Projekt RED has officially announced the delay of the game until May of 2015. An open letter from the developer was sent fans stating that the game will now launch May 19, just 4 months after its original release in February 2015.
“Ever since we started working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we knew it would be an ambitious game. We wanted, and still aim, to give you an incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe,” the developer said in the email.
“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 to May 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.”
Technically The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has now been delayed twice. Let’s hope by May 2015 we all are basking in the vast of world of Geralt.
