Am not surprised. The same thing happened to The Witcher 3 and it all worked out in the end.
And come on. If there's one developer we can make allowances for delaying it's these guys. Yeah it sucks but I'd rather they fix and polish what they can before the release date so that they don't pull a Bethesda.
Its kinda offputting how CDPR were bold with ''Its ready when its ready'' anthem and give out a release date as if they stand by it only to delay the game. Not saying the game wont have extra finesse after the delay.
I have seen countless big publishers do this with their titles with same excuse and at this point, i just think its some psychological marketing to get people even more hyped up for the release. Money talks.
I'm honestly kind of happy about this. The first few months of this year were way too packed with games I wanted to play and I really want CDProjekt to get this right. If they need more time, I want them to take it.
Would make sense if Series X & PS5 is close to the release date. Wonder if there will be like an upgrade program like they did with the previous gen (Such as getting AC4: Black Flag at a discounted cost).
I totally respect this decision. It is so nice to see a Developer actually take responsibility and have the desire to release a complete AND functioning product. Nowadays it seems that we get one , the other, or neither and still pay full price.
Given the importance of this title for CDPR, with the next console cycle set to begin this coming holiday season, it makes sense to postpone the game and time its release with the new systems. Even if the current-gen game does launch in September, I imagine we'll have info & dates on when people could instead opt to purchase versions for the new hardware.
