This week CD Project Red the developers behind the highly anticipated Witcher 3 game which is currently under development, but was unfortunately delayed form an Autumn 2014 release to February 2015.
Has this week announced that there will be no more delays for The Witcher 3 game and that fans can rest assured the delay from autumn to February for the Witcher 3 release date was a one-off.
CD Project Red Co-founder Marcin Iwinski explained to the Eurogamer website during the Polish conference Digital Dragon :
“This is not our first game; we are not newbies,” he said. “It’s not like ‘hey we are delaying and we’ll keep on delaying’. If we would think we need more time we would say ‘hey we’ll release it not in Feb but, I don’t know, June’. We made the decision at the moment we were able to judge how much time we needed, and we planned it well and it works well for us. So, no more delays.”
“But we were really positively surprised with the response,” he said. “It was ‘hey guys, great that you have the balls to say that you take your time and you spend money on it’. Because it’s not happening for free. That’s a really important thing to mention.”-“You can always take more time on a game, especially with huge games,” he said. “You’re never able to plan perfectly, and then the closer you get to shipping, the more you see ‘oh I could use these [extra] two-three months…'”.
