CD Projekt Red, the developer of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” has provided an explanation as to why the multiplatform next-generation video game won’t be released this year as originally planned. According to a report from Game Planet on March 12, the studio sent an open letter to fans mentioning that the decision was “difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious.”
Although CD Projekt Red could have released “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” in 2014, the delay will help the development team improved on the quality of the open-world action role-playing game to a level that will satisfy both the company and players. As a result, the release date for the software product has been pushed back to the second month of 2015.

The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. Yet we concluded that a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015.
“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” is one of the most anticipated next-generation video games for the PS4 and Xbox One. The new consoles give CD Projekt Red the ability to increase the visual fidelity in addition to adding open-world elements. However, the studio will need a little bit more production time than originally planned.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is the North American publisher for “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” which is also coming to the PC along with the PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
