The Witcher 3 will arrive in February, devs promise “no more delays”

Delays are happening all over the place, and sometimes it seems like half the games these days get delayed multiple times. As Eurogamer learned at the Digital Dragons conference in Poland last week however, that would not be the case with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

CD Projekt Red first announced a delay for the much anticipated RPG in March, when the final installment in The Witcher trilogy was delayed from the end of 2014 until February 2015. But as CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski explained:

“This is not our first game; we are not newbies. 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.”

The delay did not, as some commentators speculated, have anything to do with the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition – set to be released on October 7th this year:

“No, not at all. Having said that, if they were shipping on October 8 and they would announce it before us, then we would look, I don’t know, for November or something. Because there are so few RPGs that it’s really a very stupid idea to ship them at the same time.”

The rest of the interview is well worth a read if you’re a fan of The Witcher and CD Projekt Red, check it out over on Eurogamer.

I like that they were truthful about DA:I, that if it was releasing at the same time they would delay by a month or so to not clash.
