Fantasy role-playing game Two Worlds II will be released in the UK and US on 25th January next year, TopWare Interactive has announced.
The game has already sold over one million units in Europe after just three weeks on sale.
SouthPeak Games was set to publish the game in the UK and Ireland, but TopWare has now taken control and will publish on these shores instead.
"The rights were not purchased back by TopWare, as was previously reported," TopWare said.
"Both TopWare and SouthPeak want our game to get the attention it deserves," TopWare's managing director James Seaman said.
"South Peak wants to give the North American market 100 per cent of its attention, and we're happy we were able to take some of the weight off their shoulders. Two Worlds II really is a labour of love, and after seeing how far the game has come, the fans are going to be blown away in January!"
Meanwhile, TopWare announced plans to open a UK office within the next six months.
Two Worlds II has suffered a difficult time in the UK.
In October SouthPeak pushed the game's release back to after Christmas because, "November is an exceptionally busy period at retail."
Eurogamer challenged the Two Worlds II date in mid-September. The game had been promised for autumn but shops offered only contrasting dates. When pressed, few admitted to knowing what was going on.
The confusion has detracted from Polish developer Reality Pump's promising role-playing adventure.
