A few days ago, CDProjektRed confirmed that Ciri will be the second playable character in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt! I know I’m a little late to the hype train, but this is still exciting news! Ciri is said to be fast, agile, and will wield many unique powers, including the blink ability teased in the Elder Blood trailer.
On a less exciting note, CDPR also announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed until May 2015, stating that there are still “many details that need to be corrected” and will require another 12 weeks of development. At first, this news is a real bummer. However, I would rather wait a couple months to ensure that the game is polished and ready, rather than pay for a game that is riddled with bugs that may or may not be fixed through a series of patches. It’s always a good sign when a reputable game company has the balls to take extra time to polish their game; I’m sure W3 will be worth the wait.
