    This is what my  steam front page looks like right now. If you enter the Steam page for The Witcher 2 it says that the release date is "Nov 2010". Anyone else heard about this?

    Dude, what? O.o I haven't heard anything about a solid release date. Seems kind of odd that they would release the game so silently. Makes me wonder if there's problems with it.

    Steam makes mistakes now and again.

    The release date was just announced to be May 17th.
    Obvious mistake, unfortunately.

    Yeah I just saw all the the digital premium edition stuff you'll get with the game. I hope the boxed premium edition comes with all of that. I sure can use a new map on my wall.

    Man... if only :( 
     
    Think I'll be ordering the physical collector's edition anyway, with all the crap I'll never use, but will enjoy opening.

    yep looks like that was a mistake, at first it said Available Now, then it said Pre-Order now with the release date listed as Nov 2010 and now the release date is removed completely

    Not only is it coming to Steam, the Steam version supposedly has Steamworks support as well. That sounds completely crazy. Imagine if Valve were to distribute their games on a competing digital distribution platform, and then also provide people with exclusive features if they bought it from there. I'm surprised CD Projekt would be willing to do that.

    I'll be going GOG as well. I mean, gog.com is owned by CD Projekt so all my money does directly to them.  
     
    I'm also going to buy the $130 Retail Collector's Edition. I don't mind double dipping for The Witcher 2.

    This, I don't need Achievements in my Witcher 2. 
     
    A year or so from now when the Steam version drops to 7.50, I'll pick it up and play it through again. Day One on GoG.com though.
