Sorry folks, looks like the witch hunt won't begin this year after all. CD Projekt Red has announced today that The Witcher 3 will not be released until some time in 2015.
"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. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015."
