Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 delayed to 2012

Publisher delays console version of RPG due to legal battle, needing more development time

Posted on
CD Projekt RED has announced that the release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for Xbox 360 – previously planned for the end of 2011 – has been shifted to calendar first quarter of 2012.

The Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2 is an adaptation of the game to the new platform. This means that the process involves significant changes and improvements for the Xbox 360 console version – not a typical port of the game, which is usually much simpler and faster. The move of the release date allows the team to spend more time expanding and polishing certain elements of the gameplay.

We have decided not to withhold information and to tell our fans immediately of the Xbox 360 launch moving to Q1 2012. The extra time will allow us to polish the title to perfection, so that the game offers an ideally balanced, fantastic experience to gamers. As the launch of the game approaches, we will be sharing more details how it will be released on Xbox 360. I trust that despite the release date shift, players will be satisfied with what we are planning for them,” stated Adam Kicinski, President of CD Projekt RED.

Another reason for the move to Q1 2012 is an ongoing legal debate with Namco Bandai Partners concerning distribution of the Xbox 360 version of the game in Western Europe, Asia-Pacific, as well as Central and South America.

The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360 will be presented to attendees at the upcoming Gamescom 2011 tradeshow in Cologne, Germany.
