Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Launching February 24 Across Xbox One, PS4, and PC

CD Projekt Red confirms release date for upcoming role-playing game and reveals preorder bonuses and collector's edition.

Polish developer CD Projekt Red today announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will launch across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on February 24, 2015. Previously, the game was expected to be released sometime in February 2015. CD Projekt Red made the announcement today during the company's annual summer conference, which recently ended.

In addition to announcing the game's release date, CD Projekt Red today revealed the preorder bonuses and collector's edition for The Witcher 3. The preorder bonuses, which leaked this morning, include a map, stickers, manual, a special Witcher Compendium, and a soundtrack. This will be available at all retailers where you can buy the game.

The collector's edition, meanwhile, includes a special Geralt figurine, a 200-page art book, steelbook game case, a wolf medallion made of steel, and everything from the standard edition. Pricing was not announced.

If you preorder The Witcher 3 through CD Projekt Red's own store, GOG, you'll get even more. In addition to a special limited-time $54 price point, you'll get a DRM-free version of the game (of course), as well as access to the closed beta for upcoming Witcher Adventure Game, a copy of Neverwinter Nights (for immediate download), a digital Witcher comic book, an extended soundtrack, and a digital art book. There's also wallpapers, avatars for social media, and never-before-published digital artwork included with GOG preorders.

CD Projekt Red cofounder Marcin Iwinski previously said that The Witcher 3's preorder bonuses on GOG would be "f***ing amazing." Do you think they've lived up to the hype? Let us know in the comments below!

I would totally love to buy the Collector's Edition provided it fits within my budget, but I know that my poor little laptop will not be able to handle this behemoth of a game Q.Q


I'm hoping that I can build myself a new gaming rig by then, or I'll just buy a PS4.

You can tell that CDPR actually give a crap about the gamers for supporting them and buying their games, unlike everyone else who just see gamers as ATM's.

Time to upgrade my preorder while my wallet continues to fly away.

When will we be able to pre-order the collector's edition?

The Witcher 3 is released roughly 30 days before my 30th birthday, how very convenient and numerological. It also seems as Geralt has aged 3-30 years since The Witcher 2.

Another game delayed to 2015...Exactly why should I buy a PS4 or Xbox One this year again?

Bought The Witcher Games elsewhere?

Simply redeem your free backup copy to add the games to the GOG.com account and get the better price for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt too!


These guys are incredible.

CDPR is one of the only companies out there worth supporting anymore.

This will likely be the game that makes me buy a new console.

I would have played it on PC but there is no way in hell my laptop will play it and I'd have to buy an entire new computer from the ground up. No thanks. I love Witcher but it isn't worth that sort of cost right now.

I am SO glad this is coming to PC. Consoles are going to take a major hit with this one.

"Since the price in your region is almost $15.98 higher than in the US, we’re giving you $15.98 back (~11.98) in bonus codes to get free classic games from GOG.com."


Wow this is so amazing, I love GOG!

£36.49 for the gog.com edition, bit much but I don't mind for these guys.

@maddad5000 Strange..I have bought in EU from Amazon US before because it's cheaper and yet they can't ship this game to me now (Romania), sucks. :-/

But of course! I almost forgot that a fanboi is more intelligent than a true video game developer and knows way more about a game than the person that is actually developing it and therefore we should always take a fanbois words over a video game dev! :)

You must also doubt whether the PS4 is able to handle pinball I suppose?

Not really considering what comes with it. That's just my opinion doesn't have to mean anything.
