However we should look on the bright side, says studio boss Adam Kicinski, because they can polish it more for an "ideally balanced, fantastic experience".
Namco Bandai are taking issue with CD Projekt RED for not sticking with them to publisher the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2, but also for dropping the DRM used in the PC version without their consent. The RPG studio meanwhile says it's all a load of hogwash.
"The extra time will allow us to polish the title to perfection, so that the game offers an ideally balanced, fantastic experience to gamers," said Adam Kicinski.
"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," he continued.
The Witcher 2 released on PC earlier this year. The console version was shown in June at E3 2011. The original game was meant to land on console but it never materialised.
