The Witcher 3 Hit With Another Delay

"The release date for the highly anticipated RPG has now been moved to May 19, 2015"

Ruh-oh fantasy RPG fans! The Witcher III: Wild Hunt has been delayed until May 19, 2015. This is the second time the game has been delayed, with it’s release date having been moved from Fall 2014 to early 2015 near the beginning of last year.

The previous delay came along with a statement from developers CD Projekt Red saying that there would be no more delays, amusingly it included the choice line “This is not our first game; we are not newbies.” Good stuff.



Here is the full open letter that CD Projekt Red sent out to fans alongside this particular delay.

Dear Gamers, May 19th, 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 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

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 fueled us in our passion since the start and will continue to do so.
