The Xbox 360 version of fantasy role-playing game The Witcher 2 has been delayed.

It was due out at the end of the year. It will now release at some point during the first quarter of 2012.

Developer CD Projekt said the extra time will allow it to "polish the title to perfection", according to a VG247 report.

The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 will be published by THQ in Europe. The PC version was published by Namco Bandai.

Last month it emerged that Namco Bandai had entered into a legal dispute with Optimus SA, the parent company of Witcher 2 developer CD Projekt Red. Namco-owned Atari is dealing with the 360 version in the US.

Namco is also seeking damages after accusing CD Projekt Red of breaching contract by removing DRM from the PC version of the game. It is thought to be refusing to pay €1.2 million in previously agreed fees to the developer as a consequence of the actions.
