Witcher: WildHunt sold over 6 million copies
27 August, 2015

CD PROJEKT RED celebrated another big achievement of the Witcher franchise. The recently released game The Witcher: Wild Hunt sold over 6 million copies all over the world. This happened only a couple of month after the studio reported about 4 million sales.

The company’s director Adam Badowski thanked the fans for their support:

One could think we have six million reasons to be happy and that’s it. We do, but that number is also a big responsibility and I want everyone to know that we, as a studio, realize that. For us, all your high praise, all the positive reviews, are also an obligation — we’ve made a really good game but there’s still a long road ahead of us. Everyone here in CD PROJEKT RED is really attached to their work and how you, the gamers, perceive it. RED is full of artists, wild dreamers and people crazy about what they do (and sometimes just plain crazy). We lose sleep over that particular colour the sun has when it sets over Velen, and argue over arranging the furniture in a house the majority of gamers will probably never see. We’re not the kind of people who are easily satisfied and we always strive for more. I’d like you to know that. Yes, six million copies is a great achievement for a company making RPGs, but this business is not only about that. If our games are a gallery of sound, picture and text – you are the visitors of this gallery. To an artist, there’s no sweeter sight than people enjoying their work. That’s why, in the name of all the devs in the studio, I’d like to say thanks to each and every one of you.

CD PROJEKT RED actually supported the game from the very first day of the release. The company pushed out new free content add-ons nearly every week. A few month after the official release studio also uploaded a huge patch, that fixes all the bugs and provides some adjustments to the interface and gameplay.

This is a wonderful example of a fantastic game, created by a Polish company without the support of any big Western publisher. Now let’s wait and see how Cyberpunk 2077 will do in terms of sales. This game is to be released in 2017.
