Fans of role-playing video games will at least be aware of the Witcher series of titles. There have been two entries in the series so far from Polish developer CD Projekt RED and the third, an open-world take on the Witcher known as Geralt of Rivia, was supposed to launch this year. Except that it’s not going to.
CD Projekt has announced that they are pushing back the release date for The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, which has been impressing gamers with the visuals that have been released of late, to February 2015.
The reason given for the delay, on the game’s official website (mind the age-gate), is that they would like “…a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us.”
The post goes on to apologise to gamers for the delay before addressing company shareholders, saying “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.”
