Atari, Namco Bandai, and THQ have already had a hand in bringing CD Projekt's The Witcher 2 to the masses, and now another name can be added to the project. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today that it will be handling North American distribution duties for the Xbox 360 edition of the game, with a launch window set for Q1 2012.
The news comes during a period of unsettled litigation between CD Projekt and the PC version's European publisher Namco Bandai. The publisher alleged an initial contractual violation when the developer released a downloadable version of the game free of digital rights management through its own online storefront, Good Old Games. A second breach was claimed to have occurred when CD Projekt signed a distribution deal with THQ to bring the game out in Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East.
The Witcher 2 is a direct sequel to CD Projekt's original and picks back up with professional monster slayer Geralt following a failed assassination of Temerian royalty. Geralt then sets out on a quest to track down the king's attempted killers, while also continuing to pursue those responsible for murdering other witchers. The PC edition received a 2.0 update last month, adding an arena mode, extended tutorials, a harder difficulty setting, and various other updates, all of which will be included in the Xbox 360 version.
