Arguably the biggest game release of the Spring has now become the biggest game release of the early Summer. Following a delay from late 2014 to February 24th next year, CD Projekt Red’s much anticipated “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” has been pushed back again to a May 19th 2015 release according to the studio.
Considering so many major titles released last month were full of bugs and glitches that made games unplayable, the company is understandably opting for more time to fine tune and polish the game so it to doesn’t become the next “Assassin’s Creed Unity” or “Halo: The Master Chief Collection”. Here’s the open letter the company has just posted:
“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 makeWild 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.
Now, nearing the end of our work, we see many details that need to be corrected. 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. 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.”
