Gamers looking forward to the launch of the new Witcher 3 Wild Hunt game that was first expected to launch sometime before the end of 2014 and was pushed back into February 2015.
Will be once again disappointed to learn that the games developers CD Projekt Red have had to push back the launch date even further into the middle of next year into May 2015.
It seems that CD Projekt Red may have been a little hasty announcing the first delayed February 24th launch date, and even after saying they would be no more delays. Have had to go against their word and push the game’s launch back until May 19th, 2015. CD Projekt Red explains a little more about the issues that have caused the game to be delayed even further:
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 May 19th, 2015.
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 apologise 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.
