The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s Street Date Broken

by Dean James


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been one of the most talked about games for awhile now. Looking to set new benchmarks in visuals and coming from a team like CD Projekt Red that is not utilizing shady DLC tactics, the game is bound to be one of the top games of 2015 and we are closer than ever to its May 19 release date. However, those in one part of the world may not have to wait as the street date has apparently been broken as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has literally been found out in the wild.


The part of the world that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt been found to have broken its street date is in the Middle East, specifically the UAE, according to Gearnuke. This includes both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions it appears, but the question is whether this is a widespread issue or something pretty self contained. Often times we see pirated versions of games show up after this, so hopefully that will not be the case here.

At the very least, I would expect to see some footage of the game going up online prior to release. The only problem is that the version that is set to release in the Middle East is censored in some ways, so it technically will not be the full experience. Either way, for those elsewhere, look for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to arrive for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 19.
