The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Goes Gold

The folks at CD Projekt RED hit us up with a mail to announce that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, certainly their most ambitious RPG yet and hopefully also the best, has gone gold. We won't have to wait all that much longer to see how the transition to an open-world fared for the series:

CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, announce The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt going GOLD

(We worked so damn hard over the past three years to bring you this game,) said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD PROJEKT RED. (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,) adds Badowski. (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has gone GOLD and will soon be yours!) he concludes.

Garnering over 200 prestigious awards before launch, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is CD PROJEKT RED's most ambitious endeavour up to date. Set within a truly open world, the game puts you in the role of a wandering bounty hunter and monster slayer, Geralt of Rivia. In The Witcher, you take on the greatest contract of your life -- tracking down the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world.

The game is scheduled to launch May 19th, 2015, on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Windows PC, and PlayStation®4. Visit and for more information about the game and pre-order availability worldwide.
