Second Delay Pushes Game Back To May

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed yet again, this time until May 2015.

Originally scheduled to launch in October 2014 before being pushed back to February 2015, the game has been delayed to allow for more development time.

In an open letter to fans, CD Projekt Red explained that it now requires a further 12 weeks to refine the PC, Xbox One and PS4 game.

The studio said: “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.

“Thank you for the all support you show us on a daily basis. We truly do appreciate it. It has fuelled us in our passion since the start and will continue to do so.”
