CD Projekt Red Explains The Witcher 3's Second Delay

Yes, we could use an explanation, especially after you promised there'd be no more delays.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt won't make its projected February date; it has been delayed until mid-May. CD Projekt Red board member Adam Kicinski explained the reasons behind this move (as reported by Eurogamer).

First, he said "gamers took our decision very well," as he says the market is currently "afraid of badly polished games on next-gen platforms." That's undoubtedly true, given what we've seen in 2014. Beyond that, Kicinski said they're simply finding a lot of small bugs:

"There's a lot of small errors though, because the game is huge. It's the only reason behind the delay. We didn't assume it will be this big. Only after putting all the pieces together it turned out it's bigger than the two first put together.

Let me remind you: it's open and not linear. We are just learning how to play it and we have to catch the little pieces. We know what to do, we just have to do it. We don't want to release the game with bugs that undermine the gameplay."

Kicinski added that in retrospect, the February 2015 date was too optimistic. "We announced the release date very early and we're paying for it now." That's unfortunate but at least we won't get a buggy game!

I think most gamers will be okay since there is still a lot to play but I was looking forward to it asap.

I think they are going for 10/10 scores cuz the cost of this thing has got to need big sales.

Well, like Assassins Creed Unity, its using the full power of the next generation of consoles so it makes sense to put more time into refining it.

Just like I thought, they paid attention to all the buggy games that released this year and decided not to be in that boat.

I hope to squash most of the bugs before launch and this game releases with little to no bugs.

I also am very curious if they can break the mold of open world games not having good stories, because both witcher games thus far have had insanely good stories.

well i'm all for this and i'm glad a suit has the balls to be frank with gamers and that they aren't being an EA or Ubisoft that rush stuff now for profit andi was being nice for awhile they have worne my patience and that is no easy task, so with all that in mind i'm give credit where its due and respect where its due and thats to the Devs and the suits involve. but more than anything the guy had the balls to be frank with that and that i have alot of respect for that, and so i am really looking forward to a really good game

happy gaming
