The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Pushed Back to February 2015
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
has been pushed back to make sure it achieves the high bar it is aiming for. A quote coming in from the developers themselves mentions how passionate and committed they are to making the RPG everyone is waiting for. The open letter reads below:
"We knew this to be an ambitious plan, but believed we could achieve it by bringing together our team with its creative energies and current gaming platforms with their technical capabilities. A project this vast and complex would inevitably require special care in its final stages, manual fine-tuning of many details, thorough testing time and again."
"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."
Despite the disappointing delay, I can commend the people at Projekt Red for making the rough decision, it shines through just how much they want this game to live up to the players expectations. As mentioned above, the new release date stands somewhere in February 2015 on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
