    Cool Witcher 2 studio sued by Namco Bandai

    Last month, Witcher 2 developer CD Projekt Red took a victory lap of sorts, announcing that its PC role-playing game sold through 400,000 copies and would soon be receiving an Xbox 360 port. That celebratory mood may have since faded, as a CD Projekt representative confirmed for GameSpot today that the developer is being sued by the game's European distributor, Namco Bandai.


    Namco Bandai is accusing CD Projekt of sorcery and breach of contract. Mostly the latter.


    According to a report on Dark Side of Gaming, Namco Bandai is accusing CD Projekt of breaking its contractual obligations with the publisher twice over.
    The first violation allegedly occurred when the developer released a downloadable version of the game free of digital rights management through its own online storefront, Good Old Games. The second breach was said to have occurred when CD Projekt signed a distribution deal with THQ to bring the game out in Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East.
    Beyond confirming the existence of the suit, the CD Projekt representative could not comment on the case. A Namco Bandai representative was also unable to comment.


    The Witcher 2 is a direct sequel to CD Projekt's original and picks back up with professional monster slayer Geralt following a failed assassination of Temerian royalty. Geralt then sets out on a quest to track down the king's attempted killers, while also continuing to pursue those responsible for murdering other witchers.

    This has already been posted in the Witcher 2 thread, I think the main reason for the lawsuit is that CDP went with a different publisher for the X360 version, needless to say this would have made Namco Bandai a huge pile of money if they were on board for the console release, hence the legal tantrum....
