The Witcher Series Passes 25 Million Copies Sold


MCV has the story.

Quote:
Developer CD Projekt has announced some big numbers for its now smash-hit RPG series The Witcher.

Total cumulative sales of the series, which now spans three titles, have now passed 25m global unit sales. Furthermore, sales of the Witcher 3 and its expansions have passed PLN 1bn (PolishZloty), which is just over £200m or $250m.

As for CD Projekt overall, its 2016 numbers were down 25 per cent on 2015, but considering the previous year saw the release of The Witcher 3 and 2016 saw only the Blood and Wine expansion pack hit the market, that’s actually pretty impressive.

“These excellent financial results for the past two years enable us to pursue new, ambitious undertakings and further expand our enterprise,” VP for financial affairs Piotr Nielubowicz said. “Key development projects currently underway include Cyberpunk 2077 and GWENT: The Witcher Card Game. In 2016 alone CD PROJEKT spent nearly PLN 56m (£11.3m) on projects in progress.

President Adam Kici?ski added: “For years we have consistently prioritized quality and focused on a limited range of products. The persistently strong sales of the entire The Witcher series vindicate our approach and contribute to long-term appeal of our releases.

Funny, I was just thinking about Cyberpunk 2077, and I was hoping that CD Projeckt was still working on it.

Hands down the best game I have ever played other than steel battalion (loc). I sometimes fire it up for a quick game of gwent,

Great news for CD Projekt! From independent to juggernaut, plus GOG on top.

EA and its numerous Developer Studios are you reading?
CD Projekt consistently prioritized quality and focused on a limited range of products. Someone please send them a memo.

Glad to have contributed to the Witcher 3 sales figure last month. Picked up the game after getting disappointed by Wildlands and couldn't be happier. The game, from graphics (which still stand strong IMHO) to quest design to dialog are all top notch - and I know I'm only in the beginning segments of the game.
