The Witcher 2, one of the hottest RPGs of the year, now officially has a publisher and a release timeframe on Xbox 360; it’ll launch with the help of Warner Bros. Interactive in the first quarter of 2012.

Here’s some stuff from a press release:

“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,” said Adam Kicinski, President, 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,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales Americas, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “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.”

Still no word on a PS3 version, for those wondering.
