The Witcher 3 Developer Issues An Apology Over Korean Language Screw-Up

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt 1

Well, it seems PC is more than often on the receiving end of negligence from developers. Not too long ago, when Capcom released Revelations 2, it was missing some features on PC even after its Steam page suggested otherwise. Now, a similar situation was seen when The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released yesterday.

The Witcher 3 is a massive game and it isn’t a surprise that some of its pieces are missing. However, CD Projekt RED failed to mention which of these pieces are missing from the final build.

The most notable piece of the puzzle was found missing by Korean gamers who bought the title on PC. Gamers were excited to see the title being localized in Korea, but sadly, the final build of the title had no support for Korean language even after it said that Korean language is supported.

Fans were enraged and rightfully so, however, developer CD Projekt RED has issued an apology and explained the situation to its fans.

First and foremost, we want to deeply apologize to every Korean gamer who could not enjoy Wild Hunt in their native tongue on launch day. Before I explain the situation, please rest assured — Korean will be added to the game via an update in less than two days, on May 21st.

To get right to the point, the delay in introducing Korean language support was caused by technical difficulties we could not foresee. When we discovered them, we had a decision to make: we could either release a game that would not live up to our (and your) standards, or do additional tests and release a product that would satisfy the Korean Witcher community. Since we’ve put in a lot of effort for this localization to be of top quality, we decided to choose the second option.

However, and I wish to emphasize this, the delay is our fault.

CD Projekt RED has been pretty modest and humble, they have also shared a heartfelt thank you note within each copy with players who bought the game. From the looks of it, there was nothing much they could have done to prevent this but still, they have admitted their mistake.  I guess we can let them off the hook, they have indeed created a great game which we all are going to keep playing for a long time.

I am excited to see what’s next for CD Projekt RED.
