The Witcher 2 Coming to the 360

By Jonathan Barnes, 7 years ago
PC gamers everywhere have been singing the praises of CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. The game currently has a Metacritic score of 89 and is receiving high praise from most outlets. In fact, the game is so popular that Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk gave President Obama a copy as a diplomatic gift on his recent visit to Poland (where CD Projekt Red is based).

Today, CD Projekt Red made an exciting announcement. They are bringing The Witcher 2 to the 360 and have promised the game out by the end of the year.

While the game (on the PC side) is being praised for its impressive graphics engine, no word has been issued on how this beefy engine will be reproduced on the 360 (word on the street is you need a high end PC to run the game). Reps from the developer have said the 360 version will look close or on par with the PC version, and also called it an "adaptation, not a port."

They have also released a teaser for the game.

More details are sure to emerge from CD Projekt Red about The Witcher 2 at E3 this week.
