Report: Witcher 2 Launching on Good Old Games in May Alongside Retail Release

According to Eurogamer, CD Projekt will launch its anticipated RPG, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, on Good Old Games on May 17, alongside the game's planned retail release.

Although GOG.com is known for releasing retro PC titles for current Windows-based operating systems, CD Projekt--who owns and operates Good Old Games--will make an exception for its upcoming title. Additionally, plans to launch on GOG.com means that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will be completely DRM-free.


Eurogamer notes that CD Projekt will announce the plan during a scheduled conference call today.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was originally scheduled to launch in March, but was recently pushed to May so that developers could "polish the game."
