In an open letter posted on the official The Witcher website, "The Board of CD PROJEKT SA" announced that the release date for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been pushed back to February 2015. While the studio felt it could have released the game toward the end of this year as initially planned, CD Projekt made the tough decision that extra time was needed to provide the exceptional quality gamers deserve and desire.

The letter apologizes to fans, but says the studio believes The Witcher 3 will be worth the wait and that it "will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment." The letter also addresses shareholders, stating that CD Projekt "firmly believe[s] 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."

With the equally highly anticipated fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition set to launch Fall 2014, the delay for The Witcher 3 may be beneficial in more ways than one. Now gamers will get to enjoy both games at launch without having to decide which to get first – assuming, of course, no other major RPG competition also releases February 2015. The fate of CD Projekt's other title, Cyberpunk 2077, was not addressed.
