CD Projekt Red har netop udsendt nogle nedslående nyheder om deres kommende rollespil, The Witcher 3.

I første omgang var The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt planlagt til en halvsen 2014 udgivelse, men nu fortæller CD Projekt Red, at man har valgt at udskyde spillet til februar 2015.

Begrundelsen skal findes i, at udviklerstudiet ikke mener, at man med den tidligere deadline, havde muligheden for at opnå den kvalitet, som man mener at spillerne forventer fra dem.

I et åbent brev, som du kan finde nederst i denne artikel i sin fulde form, lægger CD Projekt Red ud med at begrunde forsinkelsen, forefter at sende en undskyldning afsted til såvel spillere som firmaets aktionærer.

Dermed skal man altså forvente godt et års ventetid, før man endnu engang kan kaste sig ud i det vellidte The Witcher-univers. Til gengæld er BioWares Dragon Age: Inquisition planlagt til en 2014-udgivelse, så der bør altså være nok at gå i gang med, hvis man savner en god rollespilsoplevelse.

Ever since we started working on the third installment in The Witcher franchise, it has been our aim to produce a title that would take our 11 years of experience in creating RPGs and distill them into a quintessence, into a game that would effectively crown those years,

At the same time, we have wanted The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to expand creative boundaries, set new benchmarks, develop the genre as a whole. Ultimately, you, the players, must get an unforgettable adventure to experience in a vast, open world - and that's most important. We've created a story that flows naturally, cinematically, rendered it in amazing sound and visuals, while preserving full freedom of choice - all for you.

We knew this to be an ambitious plan, but believed we could achieve it by bringing together our team with its creative energies and current gaming platforms with their technical capabilities. A project this vast and complex would inevitably require special care in its final stages, manual fine-tuning of many details, thorough testing time and again.

We recently re-examined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game's final release date. The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. 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.

Dear gamers - we know many of you would have liked to play The Witcher 3 sooner, as soon as possible, even. We're sorry to make you wait longer than you, or we, initially assumed you would. At the same time, we believe the game will prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us. We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment.

Dear shareholders - we are aware of the responsibility that rests with us and thank you for the trust you have granted us thus far. We firmly believe that quality - more than any other factor - determines a game's success, and that the decision we have made is thus equally valid in business terms.
