Developer CD Projekt has revealed that the Xbox360 version of their The Witcher 2 will be delayed. The PC version has already been released a couple of months ago, and while the Xbox version was supposed to be released at the end of the year, it will now hit the shelves at some point during the first quarter of next year.
The developer said that they needed some extra time to “polish the title to perfection,” according to VG247. This will be the first time that the franchise will release the title on a console.
But the company is also wrangled in a legal battle. “Last month it emerged that Namco Bandai had entered into a legal dispute with Optimus SA, the parent company of Witcher 2 developer CD Projekt Red. Namco-owned Atari is dealing with the 360 version in the US,” Eurogamer wrote.
“Namco is also seeking damages after accusing CD Projekt Red of breaching contract by removing DRM from the PC version of the game,” the publication added.
