Bad news Witcher fans for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed once more.

We’ve been hotly anticipating The Witcher 3 dropping on our consoles at the end of February, but in an open letter posted on the official The Witcher 3 site, developers CD Projekt Red have announced the game will be put back by another few months in order to rid the Witcher universe from as many bugs and issues as possible.

Dear Gamers,

Ever since we started working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we knew it would be an ambitious game. We wanted, and still aim, to give you an incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe.

The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production. 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, 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.

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.

Whilst it’s obviously disappointing, we’d much rather CD Projekt Red drop a game that both they, and us, are happy with. Nothing worse than releasing a half baked, bugtastic new game is there?!

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will now release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on May 19th 2015.
