Witcher 2′s 360 version pushed back to Q1 2012

CD Projekt's confirmed it's delaying The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360 into Q1 2012.

The console version of the RPG, which first launched back in May for PC via Namco Bandai, was originally due to release near the end of the year from THQ. Not to be, though.

CDP said the delay was down to giving more polish to the game, but also in regards to the company's ongoing legal battle with Namco over the publishing of the 360 version.

"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," said studio boss Adam Kicinski.

CD Projekt also said it would show a video on "major DLC" that will form part of an "upcoming, as-yet-unannounced update" for the PC version at gamescom.
