The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Release Date Revealed

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had the unfortunate delay hammer smashed on it recently, pushing it from this fall to sometime in February of next year. Now, developer CD Projekt Red has announced that the game will be released on February 24th, 2015.

A new pre-E3 trailer was released that shows off new characters that will be appearing in the latest iteration of the Witcher. You can check out that video below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtVdAasjOgU’%5D


'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' Delayed For More Polish, Not For New Content

Many fans were seriously bummed when it was announced that CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was delayed to February of next year, but now we have more information that discusses why that delay ultimately happened.

Speaking with Power Unlimited, level designer Miles Tost said the following:

“Essentially we get one shot to do The Witcher 3 right [and] we could have released the game this year but we wouldn’t be satisfied with the result and fans wouldn’t be as well. The additional time that we have is really something that we use for polishing and not for creating new content because that is mostly done.”

The Witcher series is loved by both fans and critics, so it’s no wonder that the developers want to spend as much time as they can on the game to ensure that it loves up to the hype that is unquestionably surrounding it.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is being developed by CD Projekt RED for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It is currently looking at a February 2014 release window.

News Judgment – The Witcher 3 Delayed

I have unfortunate news to bring to Witcher fans, as the hotly anticipated roleplaying game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed from Fall of this year to February 2015.

Developer CD Projekt Red posted the lengthy message below:

“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.”

Condemn (OR) Condone: 

Well, this is really crappy news. It’s always a shame when a game like this gets delayed several months, though the silver lining is knowing that the time will be used to make the game better. Still, that wait is gonna suck.
