CD Projekt RED has announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed three months and will now launch on May 19th, 2015.
The studio originally planned to release the game in late 2014 but announced in March that it was delayed to February 2015.
“The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production,” the studios board wrote in an open letter on the game’s website. “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.”
“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. We owe you an apology. We set the release date too hastily.”
“It’s a hard lesson, one to take to heart for the future. We know what we want to do to make Wild Hunt one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that. So, we apologize and ask for your trust.”
