The Witcher 2 Set to Launch May 17, 2011

CD Projekt RED has just confirmed in a press release that their much-anticipated RPG, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will be releasing on May 17, 2011. This is a general launch date, and likely will not apply to all territories.

Adam Badowski, project lead at CD Projekt RED, said of the announcement,

We’ve decided to move the launch date back a few weeks to afford us
more time to polish the game. Of course, we know that players would like to get the game as soon as possible, so we hope that they will forgive us! We strongly believe that the extra time spent polishing the title will be well worth the wait

This Thursday is CD Projekt’s fall conference, and it’s expected that we’ll hear more information on the release, including details of the Collector’s Edition and pre-orders, at that time. As usual, we’ll keep an ear to the ground for any new info.

If you aren’t up on The Witcher 2, might I invite you to check out our E3 preview? In case you didn’t know, The Witcher 2 made into our Best of E3.

This is one of the few games where I can buy it and be comfortable that it will be eventually good even if it has a few bugs on release day. CD Projekt proved this when they released that EE patch. They stand behind their products.
