The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released in February 2015, according to CD Projekt Red.
Speaking in an open letter on the official CD Projekt Red website, the firm said it has "re-examined: what it has created so far, which ultimately made the team decide on a choice about the game’s final release date.
"The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious," said the firm. "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."
CD Projekt goes on to apologize for the delay, but said the extra time will "prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us."
"We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment,
the firm said.
The Witcher 3 was announced in February 2013 as an open world game 40 times as large as The Witcher 2 and 20% bigger than Skyrim.
The game will be released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
