In a slightly confusing twist on the saga that is The Witcher 2, the Xbox 360 version of the game will be published in certain regions under the THQ Partners label. In other regions the game (just like the original in the series - and, indeed, the PC version of the sequel) will be published by Namco Bandai, and nobody's quite explained why the sudden switch.
And the new publisher's come out swinging, promising the Xbox 360 version will be an "enhanced adaptation" of the PC game, including a whole bunch of enhancements and improvements, which are being kept quiet for another few months.
Adam Badowski, Studio Head at CD Projekt RED explains:
Adapting The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Xbox 360 is a massive endeavor for us, and we're committed to delivering one of the most complex and mature games ever to Xbox 360 players. We believe that with the marketing strength and distribution network of THQ we will be able to make the game an incredible success in Europe and around the world.
We are excited to work with CD Projekt RED to bring this unique role-playing game to Xbox 360 gamers.
The Witcher 2 is out now for PC, and in the not-too-distant future for Xbox 360.
I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
