This is a joke. But a joke that had to be made...

On a serious note, I'm sure they just feel they need more time with the game before they're satisfied. And that's always good when publishers give developers that option, imo. (In this case CD Project Red is both developer and publisher though.) I hear it's quite rare these days. We may not think so, because we only hear about the delays. And not so much the games that get rushed. Which can be noticeable if there are terrible glitches Day 1, but it's much harder, or impossible, to tell when it comes to many other aspects of polish.
As a bonus everyone gets a better game, and they'll launch in a seemingly less crowded time of the year.
