The Xbox 360 release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has been delayed to early 2012 due to technical reasons and the ongoing proceedings with Namco Bandai regarding the game's distribution in Europe.
"We have decided not to withhold information and to tell our fans immediately of the Xbox 360 launch moving to Q1 2012," stated Adam Kicinski, President of CD PROJEKT RED S.A. "As we have stated many times before, The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360 will be an adaptation and not regular 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."
The Xbox 360 version of the game will be at Gamescom later this month, in both video for the public and a closed demonstration form for the media.
