    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Release Date Delayed to 2015

    Source: http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/03/1...elayed-to-2015

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed until February 2015 so CD Projekt Red can make sure it reaches its full potential

    In an open letter, the developer explained the team's ambition to make the game the crowning achievement of 11 years work creating RPGs meant it was not prepared to rush the game out the door.

    "We have wanted The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to expand creative boundaries, set new benchmarks, develop the genre as a whole. Ultimately, you, the players, must get an unforgettable adventure to experience in a vast, open world – and that’s most important," it reads.

    A few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us.

    "We knew this to be an ambitious plan, but believed we could achieve it by bringing together our team with its creative energies and current gaming platforms with their technical capabilities. A project this vast and complex would inevitably require special care in its final stages, manual fine-tuning of many details, thorough testing time and again.

    "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."

    Seeing as the upcoming RPG will have over 100 hours of content along with and an all-star cast, it isn't surprising that CD Projekt Red is taking its time to make sure the game is all it can be.

    Gutted, was really looking forward to this game as well

    Hopefully when it is released the delay would have been worth it!

    It'll be releasing after Dragon Age then.

    I don't know. If Bioware improve on DOA, and not DO2, they're looking at a mighty RPG right there. Bioware, being critically acclaimed as one of the best videogame script writers currently operating. CD projekt had very wonky/cheesy script for both Witchers. They looked good though. certainly better than both Dragon Ages.

    yeah, super bummed about this...I'm sure it'll be amazing when it's finally done, but in the mean time I'm really underwhelmed by the games available in the first 4.5 months (even PS3 had a better 4 month period for games in my mind)

    With all these delays it seems like these consoles launched before developers were ready.

    well &@%# that sucks. I know it is for the best but man, is it too much to ask to get a RPG within the first year of the new console?
    Hard work never killed nobody but I ain't taking any chances

    I wonder when a nuclear warhead goes off, does the frame rate of real life drop?

    I agree, just seems to be one delay after the other at the minute!

    Good luck.

    This was a 100% buy for me if it was a mid-late 2014 title. With more games out next year? I might not be able to get it.

    I know it has to be ready - but wtf? Capitalise on the lack ('0') of RPGS out this year.

    Sad that this game is delayed to 2015, but better that than releasing a game that's not finished, IMO. One of the games I looked forward to the most this year.

    The enhanced edition features an expanded script but not sure the differences since i never played them before the changes.

    CD Projekt Red dont believe in DRM, they just believe in making good games.

    I decided that I was going to get my PS4 at the same time Witcher 3 was coming out. Decided that this Monday.

    Obviously going to be rethinking that strategy.

    Another one I'm interested in delayed, just as another finally gets a release date! Nooooooooooooooooooo!

    Man, I'm glad I've been gaming forever and am used to this kind of thing. It seems there are more now than ever before (maybe mistercrow is right about consoles being released before games were ready) but I'm no stranger to waiting a good game out. Damn though, this one stings hard. I loved both Witcher games and REALLY want to play this badly. Oh well, as always with delays, better late than broken! If the devs feel it needs more polish I'm going to respect that.
