    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Delayed Until February, 2015 says CD Projekt Red

    Those expecting to play the highly-anticipated The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have to wait just a bit longer. Originally scheduled for a Fall, 2014 release, the developers CD Projekt Red have decided to push the release date back to February of next year. In an open letter to consumers, the studio says that while they could release the game this Fall as originally scheduled, they'd rather take the additional few months to refine the game, solidifying the quality that they sought to originally achieve, and what they believe the gamers deserve.


    Here's the full open letter:
    Ever since we started working on the third installment in The Witcher franchise, it has been our aim to produce a title that would take our 11 years of experience in creating RPGS and distill them into a quintessence, into a game that would effectively crown those years. At the same time, 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. We’ve created a story that flows naturally, cinematically, rendered it in amazing sound and visuals, while preserving full freedom of choice – all for you. 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.

    Dear shareholders – we are aware of the responsibility that rests with us and thank you for the trust you have granted us thus far. We firmly believe that quality – more than any other factor – determines a game’s success, and that the decision we have made is thus equally valid in business terms.

    Why do games always get delayed?

    I've never read something like:
    "even though the game was scheduled for september, we've already finished it! We knew we are hard workers, but we didn't know we could work that fast and hard! We tested it and it's perfect now, just the way it is, so it will be in the stores on 25 march this year!"

    I wish...

    What?! Another game has been delayed too? Last time Aliens: Colonial Marines kept delaying many times, then Watch Dogs, Driveclub, the Crew, and now this! What a lazy game developer.

    Just because games get delayed doesn't make the developer a "lazy game developer."
