We already knew that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was delayed a few months because of bugs, but developer CD Projekt RED has spoken out about the game’s actual content, confirming that it is complete and “locked.”
Speaking with Nerdacy, CEO Marcin Iwinski states, “We are removing the final bugs and still running optimization in various areas.
“What it will result in is a smoother and more engaging experience and, yes, the game looking better across all platforms.”
“The content is locked, so no content changes are being made at this point. The scale of the open world in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is unprecedented, so fear not – there is enough gameplay to keep you playing for weeks.”
So no, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is not going to be undergoing any extra side missions or quests with this delay. All of CD Projekt RED’s time is being devoted to making sure this launch is primed and ready for a smooth release. A wise decision considering the horrible state of releases we saw in 2014. Take all the time you need guys. I’m in no rush.
It will be released on May 19 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
