CD Projekt pushes The Witcher 3 to February 2015 photo
CD Projekt pushes The Witcher 3 to February 2015
by Jordan Devore

No Witcher 3 this year -- it stings, doesn't it? But we'll be better off. CD Projekt's board has written about its reasons for the delay to February 2015 in an open letter, viewable in full below.

"We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned," reads the letter. "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 studio intends to "expand creative boundaries, set new benchmarks, [and] develop the genre as a whole" with The Witcher 3. I'm usually happy to see a game delayed even if I don't realize it at the time and that's especially true here. To have something with such potential miss the mark in order to hit an arbitrary release date would be disappointing beyond words.

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has passed 1.1M worldwide sales since its January 2013 release. Which maybe doesn't seem like that much with Tomb Raider needing five times that for profitability and unfinished games like...

Dark Souls II set for April 25, 2014 on PC

There was concern that the PC release of Dark Souls II would arrive long after the game hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 11, 2014. While the PC date isn't as bad as some had feared, it's by no means right around the c...
