A new batch of screenshots were also released, giving another lovely look into the lovely-looking world of RED's sequel to its unexpectedly lovely 2007 RPG The Witcher. Lovely stuff.

The Witcher 2 is scheduled for a PC release on May 17, having been delayed from a planned March 2011 launch to give "more time to polish the game." It'll be published by Atari in North America. Should the "potential" console editions be made, they'll follow later.
