The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Delayed Until May 2015

Previously set to release in February, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt stalks its way to a May 2015 release

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt


Still your blades, hunters. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed until May 19, 2015, developer CD Projekt RED announced today. The game, which was originally slated to be released in February, evidently needs more time in development before it’s ready to stalk its quarry across the PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. “The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production.” the developer said in their presser confirming the game’s delay. “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.”

“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 apologize and ask for your trust.”

While it’s disappointing to see this ambitious title shelved for a few months, this past year has shown us far too many examples of what happens when big budget games get pushed out too soon with little regard for quality. Here’s hoping the added time in development awards gamers with an epic adventure worthy of the Witcher name.
