The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is looking like it’s going to be one of the most ambitious games of the start of this console generation. The graphical fidelity is impressive, and the story and mechanics have been vastly boosted. Unfortunately though, it looks like making such an awesome game can take some time. CD PROJEKT RED have released an apology that, while lamenting the delay of release, assures gamers that it is for the best.
“ 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,” reads their statement. “With this in mind, we took another look at current workloads and what they mean for the team. 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.”
So there you have it folks, it looks like we’ll have to wait until May 19th, 2015 to slay our foes. It’s pretty impressive to see such humility from a developer. The apology closes with:
“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. Thank you for the all support you show us on a daily basis. We truly do appreciate it. It has fueled us in our passion since the start and will continue to do so.“
