CD Projekt RED has published their official statement about the leak of The Witcher 2 presentation movie

"Of course, we can't and won't try to deny the facts. The movie that appeared on the various sites yesterday presents our newest project, The Witcher 2, which we've been working on for some time. We made something about half year ago, to present the first playable version of the game." said Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt RED. "Currently we are looking for a potential publisher (or publishers) for this title, and this leak is an uncontrolled side effect of that process. For today, we are not commenting on anything that concerns the game itself."

More information about The Witcher 2 will be unveiled alongside the official announcement.
