In an open letter from developer CD Projekt RED to gamers and shareholders, the studio has delayed the blockbuster RPG title The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt until February 2015.
Here is an excerpt of their press release:
“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.”
While this is definitely a disappointment to all of us at RGN we know CD Projekt Red wants to release a polished game that exceeds gamers expectations. With a projected 100 hours of content it comes as no surprise that great things may take time.
While we wait for this much anticipated title, check out some former coverage of the game on RGN:
