The Witcher 2's Xbox 360 Debut Delayed until 2012

CD Projekt RED announced today that the Xbox 360 version of their critical hit The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings would be pushed from the end of 2011 to the first quarter of 2012. Unlike other game delays, the press release for this one straight up gives the reasons behind the delay. Moving the game over to the Xbox 360 is an adaptation, not a direct port, thus the process takes longer. There was also mention of the ongoing legal issues between the developer and their publisher for many other parts of the world outside the U.S., Namco Bandai.

Hopefully things will work out because, being the great game that it is, it deserves a wider audience than what it can get on the PC. Bringing the game to consoles in some manner is a great idea, we’ll just have to wait a little longer to get it.
