CD Projekt RED drafted an open letter explaining why they decided to delay the much anticipated open world RPG. Spoilers: it’s the usual “we shall delay until we deliver quality that’s expected of us” spiel.
Here’s a quote:
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.
Well, there it is. As of now, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is expected to release in February 2015 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
