The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt RED has signed a distribution deal that will see the game brought to Europe and marketed across the region by Namco Bandai.

CVG reports that Namco Bandai confirmed its distributor status today. It wil oversee the release of the PC, PS4 and Xbox One editions of the game in both the UK and Europe.

In a statement, CD Projekt RED studio head Adam Badowski said, “We’ve worked with Namco Bandai before, so our partners there know both The Witcher and the ideals that drive us as a studio. We’re convinced that they understand our vision for the game and that they will do a great job at letting gamers know how the game’s open world and great story are going to change the next-gen RPG landscape.”
