    Yeah, just be ready for whenever it does release, and keep in mind there's a lot of really good games coming out this year that you can look into such as the Resident Evil 3 Remake, The Last of Us 2, Dying Light 2, Ghost of Tsushima, Bravely Default 2, No More Heroes 3, and way much more. I know I'm really excited for NMH3, however I have much more to hold me over too with a back log the size of a Lexicon.

    To be honest it is kinda sad, I was really hoping it wasn't gonna be delayed... again. However this Open World Cyberpunk game has been in development for 8 years now, and has been restarted several times before, so it should be somewhat expected at this point to get delayed, especially if they have to polish the game a bit, and iron out the bugs, so it releases with the respectable quality, and care we have come to know with CDPR. It's better to wait a bit more for QC then to rush a project that has been in development for almost a decade, we all know the Crackdown 3 effect.

    At this rate doom eternal and animal crossing are going to get delayed too.
    At least RE3 remake looks mostly complete.

    Small possibilty but do you think they are trying to see if a switch release can be acheived? if it can the delay makes sense as this couldn't be done by April.

    to be fair we never thought a witcher 3 release would of happened. This could happen sooner rather than later.

    In any case they are just slowly kicking it forwards to do a simultaneous nextgen release.

    You don't understand, the IP as a whole may have been in development for 8 Years, but the IP has openly restarted it's development several times, so the actual game build we saw in the game-play trailers, that might only have been in development for 2-3 Years, so it's valid for them to want to delay it for bug fixing, especially after so many development restarts, they want to avoid a Crackdown 3.

    I get your concern, but there's more to this that you can openly look into, don't jump to conclusions just yet. Just don't pre-order it, and wait until reviews, or the game releases to draw a valid whole conclusion.

    Was it development hell or just a long development?
    Development hell normally gets reserved for times when publishers/investors/higher ups change requirements on people at the last minute (usually change of genre or suddenly we need multiplayer but occasionally when more features get added and added), when publishers change, sometimes when you get a late in the day engine change, if not engine then industry sea change and suddenly there is new hardware out, maybe like some of the fun Aliens Colonial Marines got where there were allegations of fraud, when promised cash gets delayed or removed, when key players (various directors, technical leads, lead writers...) in the development get removed/leave the company... the sorts of things that usually lead to a game tanking or not being released at all.
    I have not heard any of that. At best we got some people wondering about crunch time style development being employed here, which was answered by several people in the thick of it saying "all good here".

    Well paint me incorrect on my terminology then, and pardon that ignorance, I'll make some edits to those posts. I assumed incorrectly that Development Hell was just writers fluff, for Long Development.

    Well that sucks, but it's not really surprising. Takes a long, long time to make games as large and full of content as The Witcher 3.

    I don't mind how long a release takes, as a well polished and bug tested game is better than a quick ride on the hype train only to find it's wheels fall off.

    I was planning to buy this on steam this week, well it's a good thing I haven't yet because it's just going to sit a while in my library. Atleast now I have more time for ff7, re3, animal crossing, etc...

    The game fully playable they said, yet they delayed it because some sex scenes are buggy or what?

    Good. It means that they're not overworking their developers to push the release date.

    For those of you who forgot, CD Projekt Red was under fire for encouraging crunch (forcing developers to work insane hours -think "no weekend, can't see family when home since they're all asleep" shit- release deadlines rather than delaying them) a year or so ago.
