The Witcher 2 coming to Xbox 360; new PC patch tomorrow


During its 'Summer Days' pre-E3 event, CD Projekt has finally confirmed that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will arrive on the Xbox 360.

The developer promises that the console version will not "compromise" quality in its conversion. The Xbox port is expected to launch by the end of 2011.

The news of a console version comes to no surprise as the developer had previously stated the team "always wanted and still plans to develop The Witcher 2 on consoles."

CD Projekt also took a moment to reveal a new patch (v1.2) will arrive tomorrow. The patch balances the game's prologue, adds the ability to map keys, tweaks "Target locking", TW1 save file import fixes, and more. The patch also adds new DLC allowing players to change Geralt's hairstyle.

All released updates on the PC will be added to the Xbox 360 version, the developer confirmed.

According to CD Projekt, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has sold 400,000 units since launching two weeks ago.

Described as a game that "outdoes everything in its class" in the Shacknews review, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was developed by CD Projekt RED and released on May 17 for the PC.
