In response to a question from  Eurogamer about the relation of Inquisition to the delay, “No, not at all” said Iwinski, “He too add that, “if [BioWare] were shipping on October 8 and it would announce that before us, then we would look, I don’t know, for a November release or something, because there are so few RPGs that it’s really a very stupid idea to ship them at the same time.”

Iwinski also emphatically stated the delay was the only pushback we’ll see for Wild Hunt. “This is not our first game; we’re not newbies,” he said. “It’s not like, ‘Hey, we’re delaying, and we’ll keep on delaying.’ If we would think we need more time we would say, ‘We’ll release it not in February but, I don’t know, June.’ We made the decision at the moment we were able to judge how much time we needed, and we planned it well and it works well for us. So, no more delays.”

Scratch a deep cut with your silver sword into February on the calendar, then, because that’s the locked-in month for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.
