Just when we thought we were nearing a release date announcement for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, developer CD Projekt RED has announced that we’re going to have to wait almost a whole year to get our hands on it.
The Witcher 3 was earlier planned for release in the latter part of 2014, but CD Projekt RED has now said it will release in February 2015. Well, at least they’ve narrowed it down to a specific month this time. Hopefully the next delay announcement will come with an actually release date.
CD Projekt said in an open letter:
“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 Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is scheduled for release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
