CD Projekt Red has sent out a press release to let fans of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt know that the release date has been pushed back from February 2015 to May 2015. Calling The Witcher 3 "the most important game in our studio's history", the letter indicates that there are still corrections to be made before unleashing it on the world.
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.
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.
