Marcin Iwinski has addressed some new concerns in regards to the possibility of "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" being further delayed. According to a report from Dual Shockers on May 15, the co-founder of CD Projekt Red stated that the development team has enough experience to prevent another postponement. He also stated that the initial announcement has been planned out by the studio to reassure that the project won't be further pushed back.

Marcin Iwinski went on to revealed that his staff were pleasantly surprised to hear the fan responses after the initial release date delay announcement for "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt." The community thought it was great that CD Projekt Red is spending extra time and money to work on the project. The video game was supposed to come out sometime in 2014. You can find a part of the statement made by the co-founder with the comments below:

We were really positively surprised with the response. It was ‘hey guys, great that you have the balls to say that you take your time and you spend money on it’. Because it’s not happening for free. That’s a really important thing to mention.

"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" is the biggest project to be developed by CD Projekt Red. In fact, the company had to add more staff members to compensate for the development of the sequel, which features an open-world setting that is even bigger than "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim." The company is also promising that the decisions made by the player will have a rippling effect on the story and world state. For example, choosing whether or not to kill a legendary monster would change the composition of a village later on in the game.

CD Projekt Red wanted to add more polish to the experience and, therefore, decided on a new release date window of Feb. of next year. Doing so may also provide some financial benefits as the install bases for the PS4 and Xbox One will be expanded after the 2014 holiday season rush.
