CD Projekt Red has promised that its upcoming RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will suffer “no more delays,” and is on track to meet its scheduled February 2015 release date.
The developer recently announced that the game needed a few more months than originally planned, and so decided to push it back from late 2014 to February 2015. Co-founder Marcin Iwinski told Eurogamer at Digital Dragons that this delay was a one time thing.
“This is not our first game; we are not newbies,” he said. “It’s not like ‘hey we are delaying and we’ll keep on delaying’. If we would think we need more time we would say ‘hey we’ll release it not in Feb but, I don’t know, June’. We made the decision at the moment we were able to judge how much time we needed, and we planned it well and it works well for us. So, no more delays.”
Iwinski added that he was surprised by how fans reacted to the news. “But we were really positively surprised with the response,” he said. “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 set to launch February 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
