Namco sues over Witcher 2 console publishing rights - report

Namco Bandai has reportedly filed a lawsuit against CD Projekt Red parent company Optimus SA over European publishing rights for The Witcher 2.

According to Giant Bomb, Namco, publisher of the PC edition of the title, has taken issue with the decision to grant THQ European publishing rights for the Xbox 360 version of the RPG.

Namco also claims CD Projekt Red broke a contract with the publisher by removing DRM from the PC version of the game without its permission. Explaining its reasoning at the time, CD Projekt stated: "DRM schemes do not support our philosophy."

As a consequence of the legal action, Namco is said to be withholding payments of €1,225,000.

Optimus said in a statement that "Namco's claims are unfounded." Namco and THQ have yet to respond to the site’s requests for comment
