We’ve recently been in regular contact with CD Projekt RED, creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We’ve talked to them about resolution and frame rate, staying independent as a studio, and even briefly about Cyberpunk 2077.

Today, the studio announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been pushed into 2015. CD Projekt Red released this statement,

We recently reexamined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game’s final release date. The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. Yet we concluded that a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015.

 

Dear gamers – we know many of you would have liked to play The Witcher 3 sooner, as soon as possible, even. We’re sorry to make you wait longer than you, or we, initially assumed you would. At the same time, we believe the game will prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us. We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment.

A game with the size and scope of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can’t be rushed. There’s no good reason to release before it’s fully finished. We’re behind CD Projekt RED in their decision to take the necessary time to finish the finale of The Witcher trilogy right.
