“We are very pleased to partner with CD Projekt RED to bring ‘The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings’ to consoles in the United States, Canada and Mexico,” said Warner Bros. Interactive senior VP of sales Kevin Kebodeaux. “Witcher 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.”
It'll be interesting to see the marketing for The Witcher 2, since in North America the first game wasn't the blockbuster it was in Europe. Warner Bros. Interactive will be working to raise the awareness of the Xbox 360 version and introduce Geralt to the uninitiated.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is due to be released on the Xbox 360 sometime in Q1 2012.
