Developer CD Projekt RED released an open letter stating that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, earlier slated for release in February of next year, has been delayed until May.

"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."

CD Projekt RED also apologized to fans for being too 'hasty' with the earlier release date and thanked them for their continued support. While delayed, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will trek through the mountains to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.
