Default The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Reason for Delay

July 17th, 2014, 14:13
Gamerant's Andrew Dyce posted a new article for The Witcher 3 that talks about the delay, and quotes the developer saying it's because "The Open World Was Missing"

As one of the very first games confirmed to be coming only to next-gen home consoles, CD Projekt Red set expectations for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunteven higher than they may have been on their own. But after putting on an impressive show at E3 2013, the developers announced that the game would be delayed from its initial release date, hitting store shelves on February 24, 2015. So why did the team need the extra time? According to the heads of development, the game’s open world just wasn’t up to the level they demanded.

Bah.
It was delayed because they don't want to sell bugs and they will not make Sims houses lousy rip-off and sell that separately.

Just get it right. Creating a massive game like this takes time, so a delay or two is nothing to worry about.

If someone with enough discipline would take front position, I promise to provide a solid and thorough design

The Watch should kickstart something eventually, no?

Afaic, they can take as long as they want. It's not like I'm going to run out of games to play over the next year.
