Console role-playing fans itching for a chance to try The Witcher 2 will have to wait a wee bit longer. Developer CD Projekt Red has delayed the release of Assassins of Kings for the 360 due to “expanding and polishing certain elements of the gameplay” and an ongoing legal kerfuffle concerning the game’s distribution overseas. Originally scheduled to ship at the end of this year, the new release date is now set for the first quarter of 2012.

“We have decided not to withhold information and to tell our fans immediately of the Xbox 360 launch moving to Q1 2012. As we have stated many times before, The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360 will be an adaptation and not regular port. The extra time will allow us to polish the title to perfection, so that the game offers an ideally balanced, fantastic experience to gamers. As the launch of the game approaches, we will be sharing more details how it will be released on Xbox 360. I trust that despite the release date shift, players will be satisfied with what we are planning for them,” stated Adam Kicinski, President of CD PROJEKT RED S.A. (formerly Optimus S.A.).
