According to a blog posting on CD Projeckt Red’s website, the hotly anticipated game The Witcher 3 will be delayed until May 19th, 2015. In the article, the game’s development crew cites the need to make sure the game is bug free up release as a reason for the twelve week delay and that it would simply not be possible to do so within the game’s current development timeline. A more detailed explanation for the push back can be found below:
“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.”
The team stated that they are deeply sorry for the delay and do hope that gamers will bear with them and look forward to a truly great roleplaying experience when the Witcher 3 is finally release in the late spring.
