The Witcher 2 delayed, dated for May

CD Project RED has dated its RPG sequel The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Though there’s been a slight delay, the game’s now officially on for May 17, 2011.

That’s the expected North American date then. Specifics for other regions will be confirmed closer to launch, but expect it around then worldwide.

The game slipped from its initial March window to allow for additional polish time, Adam Badowski, project lead at CD Projekt RED, says: “Of course, we know that players would like to get the game as soon as possible, so we hope that they will forgive us! We strongly believe that the extra time spent polishing the title will be well worth the wait.”
