Even though half the mid-ranged computers out there couldn’t play The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings on its highest settings, CD Projekt Red has somehow managed to fit the game onto the Xbox 360. Well, today Warner Bros. Interactive announced that they have come to terms of agreement with CD Projekt to help squeeze The Witcher 2 onto Microsoft’s console by distributing the game to North American retail.

Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment shared a few thoughts on the buddy-up combination, saying…
“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,” ... “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.”

It’s a smart move by Warner Bros no doubt. But I still can’t get over how this game will run on the Xbox 360. I guess I’m more of a see it to believe it kind of guy. Adam Kici?ski, President, CD Projekt RED has no qualms about the transition, though, making optimistic comments about the port, saying…
“We have added significant enhancements to the Xbox 360 version of ‘The Witcher 2,’ going far beyond simply editing the code to run on a new platform. Thanks to one of the world's newest game engines, the RED Engine, it will be one of the best-looking games ever released on Xbox 360,”

The Witcher 2 pushed boundaries with it’s player-based morality system, enabling gamers to make choices that they feel are right as opposed to following a linear narrative on what should be right or wrong. The game rivals the story and character complexity oftentimes found in BioWare games and has become a new staple of mature-themed RPGs for this generation of gaming.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is set for release in the early first quarter of 2012 for the Xbox 360. You can learn more about the game by visiting the Official Website.
