Report: Namco Bandai Suing CD Projekt Over The Witcher 2

A recent report has surfaced stating that Namco Bandai has issued a law suit to developer CD Projekt RED over The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.

Apparently the law suit deals with Namco Bandai claiming that CD Projekt broke an agreement the two had to have Namco Bandai publish the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2 when it is released. The suit also states that CD Projekt broke the publishing agreement again by removing the retail version's DRM in a post-release patch for the game.

The suit states that CD Projekt then gave the publishing rights for the 360 version to THQ.
“As with most cases, we first tried to end the dispute peacefully. Attempts failed and because of this, we hoped that our partner would send the case to the court,” CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski said.

“The agreement that we signed last year, concerned only the distribution of The Witcher 2 for the PC. The records were carefully clarified to avoid any ambiguity.

“Namco Bandai have options when choosing the priority of our distributor’s version of the Xbox 360. It could use, but not taken advantage of certain preferences. In this situation, we chose the offer that THQ made us.”
Kicinski then stated;
“I hope that the whole thing will end with a pre-litigation settlement. If it doesn’t, I am sure that we will win the case and then the loser will pay for our lawyers,” he said.
The Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2 is due out this holiday season.
