Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced it will be bringing CD Projekt Red's popular PC Action RPG The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings
to North American Xbox 360s early next year.
CD Projekt Red promises "significant enhancements" for the Xbox 360 version that go well past a straight port. "Thanks to one of the world's newest game engines, the RED Engine, it will be one of the best-looking games ever released on Xbox 360,” said studio president Adam Kiciński, in a statement.
is a AAA franchise that fits well with our strategic distribution of high quality games, making it a great addition to our 2012 line-up in North America," WB senior VP for sales Kevin Kebodeaux said in a statement.
An Xbox 360 version of the title was already planned for European release through THQ, though European PC version publisher Namco Bandai has taken the developer to court
over that publishing agreement.
The Witcher 2
was reportedly approaching 1 million sales
as of late August, following a June release.
A planned console port for the first Witcher
title, released in 2007, was eventually scrapped
due to what the company called quality issues. That title saw more than 1 million sales
nearly a year after its PC release.
