The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt delayed to release on May 19, 2015

CD Projekt RED has announced The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be delayed to May 19, 2015.

In a statement sent to Shacknews today, CD Projekt RED says it knew The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would be an “ambitious game” as the development studio aims to give players an “incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe.” As a result of the sheer size and complexity of The Witcher 3, CD Projekt RED will need another 12 weeks of development time to make sure the title not only has a number of key features, but to also correct “many details” that need improvement. “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.”

In light of all of all of the titles that have released with numerous bugs this fall, which includes Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Assassin's Creed Unity, and DriveClub, I for one am completely fine with waiting a bit longer for The Witcher 3.
