The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Delayed to May
CD Projekt Red have pumped the breaks on releasing The Witcher 3 to help make the Wild Hunt have a better open world experience.
Looks like you'll have some more time to play Geralt of Rivia's first two games now that CD Projekt Red have delayed The Witcher 3 to a May 2015 release. This past March, we reported that The Witcher 3 would come out on Feb. 24, which was a few months past what we thought would be a Winter 2014 debut. Now, it looks as though the Poland-based teams of CD Projekt Red need even more time to iron things out and make it the best current-gen Witcher title it could be.
"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," a letter from CD Projekt Red stated. "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."
Hey, no need to explain, Projekt Red. With all the glitches that have plagued the top tier titles released this past November, we're glad to see that you guys are taking the high route and giving yourselves more time to iron things out instead of rushing an unfinished game out and hoping post release patches can fix the errors you knew about.
"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 19, 2015."
There you have it, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will launch on May 19 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
