Witcher 2 developer sued by Namco Bandai

CD Projekt RED has managed to secure a baffling number of publishers for the original PC release of its RPG, The Witcher 2, and the upcoming Xbox 360 release as well.

While the developer self-published the game in their native country of Poland, it partnered with Atari to distribute the PC version in North America, with Namco Bandai in Europe, and 1C Company in Russia. The Xbox 360 version will be coming to Europe courtesy of THQ, a deal that Namco Bandai is disputing in a new lawsuit.

Seems like they (CD Projekt) paid extra attention to what the distribution contract entailed. Great game, a must buy for fans of the WRPG genre imo.

Bandai to CD Projekt - "you give us more money!!!, not those THQ bastards!!!"

CD Projekt to Bandai - "Get the **** out of my building"

Bandai to CD Projekt - "I guna suuueeeee yyoooouuuuu"

Bandai = Profit? Not likely...

Wow, you're creative.

On a serious note, I know CD Projekt created Witcher 2, thus can do no wrong, but I think we're jumping to conclusions. It's not like we've seen the contract or any pieces of it; just because they say there isn't ambiguity, doesn't mean there isn't.

Oh I'm wasting my time. Logic falling on deaf, fanatical ears.

"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"

And this is why publishers can go and burn in hell for trying to steal the developers' well-deserved earnings. CDPR knew they would try it lol.

This is pretty funny, Looks like Namco signed a contract without reading it.
