A new Witcher 3 trailer has just been released, and it looks like CD Projekt Red is preparing for an awesome E3 reveal.

CD Projekt Red admitted it was forced to extend delays in the development, to ensure the next installment in The Witcher franchise doesn’t slack in the gameplay and graphics department.

The Witcher 3 trailer tease is likely followed up by more content in the coming months, as CD Projekt continues development for the PC and console ports.
A Reddit user revealed more details than developers might be comfortable with, though. A candid exchange leaked info on characters and gameplay dynamics.
