Witcher 3 Release Date Not Definite, Cyberpunk Unaffected

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn’t strutting down the beardwalk until 2015. Boooooo. But we shall save mourning for another day, as there is work to be done and questions to be asked. After all, CD Projekt isn’t just a Witcher factory anymore. It’s also working on Cyberpunk 2077 and a couple mysterious “smaller” games. When Geralt – CDP’s clear ace-in-the-hole – gets shuffled back into the deck, what does that mean for everybody else? I got in touch with CD Projekt to find out.

Boooooo! – The Witcher 3 Delayed To 2015

That ominous mountain is now retroactively symbolic of a very long wait.

It was all going to be so simple. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was set to come out toward the end of 2014, and I was going to tear into it like a ravenous wolf cub, all fur and fang and aggression, no hesitation or 9-5 desk job or mortgages I should be worrying about. But that, sadly, is no longer the plan. CD Projekt’s open-ish world opus has been pushed into 2015. It’s all in the name of making the best game possible, but… oh jeez what is this entire freshly sliced onion doing in my eye? It’s getting in the way of all that bitter sobbing over The Witcher 3 I was going to do.

Finally: There Is A Witcher Boardgame

The day that everyone’s been eagerly awaiting is finally upon us. After years of suffering through CD Projekt’s childish “videogame” machinations, The Witcher is assuming its proper place on sturdy, grown-up tables the world over. The Witcher Adventure Game – which is not a Witcher adventure game – is a four-player role-based romp through the series’ witchy wilds. All the trademarks are in place: recognizable characters, quests with choices and multiple outcomes, and – yes, thank the heavens – Geralt’s beard. Trailer and info on how all these jagged jigsaw pieces fit together below.

At Least Some Of These 65 Witcher 3 Screens Are New

We’ve no new Witcher 3 videos of late, but if you scroll through these really, really quickly, it’ll be just like watching a low frame rate, abysmally edited video. Make some sword-swooshing noises as you do it, for added effect. The genesis and/or novelty of these 65 1080p screenshots of CDP’s next massive roleplaying game is somewhat indeterminate at present, but I’m sure a good number of them will be fresh to your eyes. PCs with low memory should perhaps be wary of this doubtless RAM-hungry post.

Buy Anything On GOG, Get A Free Copy Of Witcher

Geralt, minus beard and graphics.

Purchasing games is hard. Nearly impossible, in some cases. You have to pick one out, remember your credit card number, do, like, a million other things, and then pray that the game will materialize on your hard drive via magicks so dark that their casters take their coffee double-black. Oh, and the process always, invariably costs at least 14 million dollars. I was thinking of giving up on it altogether until GOG announced a rather tantalizing incentive. For one week, any purchase you make will come with a free copy of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition.

See CDP Explain The Mad Scope Of The Witcher 3

Of the many, many games I have seen this year, The Witcher 3 stands out as just ridiculously ambitious, as I explained in this article. If you want to get a handle on just what a challenge CD Projekt’s Polish RPG commandos have set for themselves, you should take a look at the presentation they gave at the Eurogamer Expo last weekend. I’m not saying this game is definitely going to flatten the RPG opposition in the coming years – because they are biting off what only a monster can truly chew – but I can’t see any other icebergs as ominous or as enormous as this one.
