The Witcher 3 has been delayed by 12 weeks, moving its release date to May 19, 2015.

CD Projekt Red released an open letter explaining the situation:

Dear Gamers,

Ever since we started working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we knew it would be an ambitious game. We wanted, and still aim, to give you an incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe.

The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production. Now, nearing the end of our work, we see many details that need to be corrected. When we release the most important game in our studio's history, we must be absolutely sure that we did everything we could to limit any bugs to a level that will allow you to enjoy the game thoroughly.

With this in mind, we took another look at current workloads and what they mean for the team. Even though everyone is working at full speed, we concluded that we need another 12 weeks, so we are shifting the release date of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to May 19th, 2015.

We owe you an apology. We set the release date too hastily. It's a hard lesson, one to take to heart for the future. We know what we want to do to make Wild Hunt one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that. So, we apologize and ask for your trust.

Thank you for the all support you show us on a daily basis. We truly do appreciate it. It has fueled us in our passion since the start and will continue to do so.

Well, there go my plans for February. In the meantime, watch a new trailer above to make that wait all the harder.

Footage from the Witcher 3 panel won't be up for some time, but thanks to live tweets from the event we've got some idea what happened in there:
Technical difficulties mean there's been no audio from the gameplay footage, but Geralt's voice actor, Doug Cockle, is on hand to provide context.


The gameplay featured the use of fast travel which is available outside of cities, and showed the ability to visit any location on the map. Best of all, in case you missed it in previous gameplay trailers, jumping confirmed:


In other words, nothing new here.

Get pumped for The Witcher 3 by watching Geralt take on one hell of a monster in this gorgeous cinematic video.  Content warning: visceral violence, lady nips, and blood ahead.
