The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to launch February 2015

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will launch in February 2015, CD Projekt Red announced today via the game's official website.

According to the post, CD Projekt Red hopes to "expand creative boundaries, set new benchmarks, develop the genre as a whole" with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. To do so, however, means pushing the game back from its intended release at the end of the year.

"We recently reexamined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game's final release date," the post reads. "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."

The Witcher 3 will conclude the story of Geralt of Rivia. It follows the longstanding hero as he searches for the dark, deadly force known as the Wild Hunt.
