Not surprisingly, given the long-planned May 17th release date, but The Witcher 2 has gone Gold. We received notices from both Namco for Europe and CD Projekt:
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Has Gone Gold
Highly acclaimed RPG masterpiece to hit shelves May 17th 2011
LYON, FRANKREICH / WARSAW, POLAND – 27. April 2011 – Namco Bandai Partners S.A.S. and CD Projekt RED are pleased and proud to announce that The Witcher 2 has gone gold. Both the Premium Edition and the limited Collector’s Edition are now in production. The game will be available for purchase on May 17.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is the eagerly awaited sequel to the award-winning, million-selling RPG that captured the imaginations of discerning players everywhere. It introduced a truly unique protagonist, the professional slayer of monsters, Geralt of Rivia, and defined a new standard for thought-provoking, non-linear game narration, with mature themes, significant choices that weren’t automatically good or bad, and true decisions that led to meaningfully different consequences.
The Witcher 2 builds upon these distinctive strengths within an all-new storyline filled with complex characters, captivating political machinations and intriguing challenges. It also features a new, brutal combat system that uniquely combines tactical elements with dynamic action. The proprietary REDengine, designed and built in-house to support the specific demands imposed by our complex, branching style of open-ended storytelling, also takes full advantage of the latest advances in graphical technology.
