CD Projekt RED has just announced that its highly anticipated RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has been delayed one more time. While the game was meant to hit stores this February, the game has been delayed almost three additional months and now targets a May 19th release.
According to the team, the game is delayed because it wants to further polish it.
“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.”
A couple of months ago, we heard some rumors suggesting that The Witcher 3 was under a development hell. Not only that, but the game was originally meant to hit stores in 2014. Add these two together, and you may have a sneak peek at what’s happening in CD Projekt RED. That, or we are simply reading too much into this.
Let’s also not forget that the latest trailer was not as mind-blowing as the previous ones. CD Projekt RED did not reveal whether it was from the console version or not, however we can safely say that NVIDIA’s specific features were missing from it.
CD Projekt RED concluded that game will be coming on May 19th:
“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.”
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
