Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment has announced that they will be publishing The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for Xbox 360 in North America in Q1 2012. Slated to include a swath of improvements over the PC version of the title, this version is claimed to be, "one of the best-looking games ever released on the Xbox 360," by Adam Kiciński, President of CD Projekt RED.

"We are very pleased to partner with CD Projekt RED to bring The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings to consoles in the United States, Canada and Mexico," noted Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "[The] Witcher is a AAA franchise that fits well with our strategic distribution of high quality games, making it a great addition to our 2012 line-up in North America."

Kiciński continued, "We are sure that this partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, with its strong position in the entertainment sector and particularly in the video and games distribution market in North America, will help us to achieve even bigger success in the most important market for Xbox 360 games. This is also a big distinction for us, that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment recognizes The Witcher 2 as a rare example of a game with world-class production values, which merges a very ambitious and complex approach with big commercial potential."
