The Witcher 3 Coming in 2015
CD PROJECT have today announced that they’ll be delaying The Witcher 3 into 2015. Although there was never a firm release date for the project, it was expected to be in stores in time for Christmas.
From the open letter, published on their official website:
We recently reexamined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game’s final release date. The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. Yet we concluded that a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015.Dear gamers – we know many of you would have liked to play The Witcher 3 sooner, as soon as possible, even. We’re sorry to make you wait longer than you, or we, initially assumed you would. At the same time, we believe the game will prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us. We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment.
The massive RPG is one of the big AAA titles showing off what next-gen is really capable of, and it’s a shame that we won’t have hold of it for another year. Still, it’s better that it’s released as close to perfect as possible. I’m sure I’m not alone in rather having a good game tomorrow than a bad game today.
