The Witcher 2 Xbox 360 delayed into Q1 2012
Slipped to next year due to legal disputes over publishing rights between Namco and THQ.
CD Projekt RED has confirmed that the Xbox 360 version of its acclaimed RPG, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, has been pushed back from its initial release late this year until the first quarter of 2012.
The Polish developer explained that the legal dispute between Namco Bandai and THQ over publishing rights to the console port was the main reason behind the delay decision.
The good part is that CD Projekt says that the delay will give them more time to polish the title, as they’re opted to deliver an adaptation instead of a messed up port.
“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,” said studio head Adam Kicinski.
