You can stash those pitchforks and rest easy. CD Projekt RED has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has officially gone gold. This means that the game’s development is complete and is all set for shipping. Most importantly, we don’t have to fear the game being delayed any more, a trend we’ve come to see in past year.
“We worked so damn hard over the past three years to bring you this game,” said studio head Adam Badowski, “From the corrupt nobles in Novigrad to ancient monsters lurking in deep forests, to the bustling cities, colorful ports and breathtaking vistas; all the people, all the places.
“We literally spent tens of thousands of hours to turn all that into an adventure that will kick your ass and make you want to come for more. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has gone gold and will soon be yours.”
Any changes that the developer now wants done will be through post-release patches. Previously, the game saw to a couple of delays because CD Projekt RED required more time to squash bugs which were present in an abundant quantity. That is understandable when considering the scale of the game.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available on May 19 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. We’ll now rest our hopes of seeing a smooth release into the palms of CD Projekt RED’s experienced hands.
