Witcher 3 - Editorial @ Pixelgate

Pixelgate has a new article for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt where they write the delay is a good idea, and that we should all appreciate CD Projekt for doing so.

Normally video game delays come with a sigh of disappointment along with the despairing thought of yet another game in developmental hell. Truth be told, however, some delays are just what a game needs. The latest Thief, for example, stinks of a game that could have done with a good few extra months of polish before it was released. The point, then: delays may have a negative impact on the consumer, but the product benefits from it.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the latest game to be delayed (now set for release February 2015), but I, as a Witcher fan, am utterly delighted by this. Why? Simply because it comes down to the talent, class, and relationship CD Projekt has with its franchise and its fans. They’re a studio whose attitude is both commendable and human–a rare thing in the video game industry.

In the face of heavy piracy, and during the days when DRM was a hot topic, CD Projekt’s refusal to incorporate harsh DRM into their games commanded a lot of respect. They trusted their fans, and that, today, reflects their dedication to producing quality games.
