For some video game companies, a good achievement is to reach one million copies sold in a month, if not quicker. For CD Projekt Red and their title The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, they did four times that number in half the time. In a statement today, team member Marcin Iwinski told of how the game sold the number in two weeks and wanted to ensure that the expansions (that will soon come) reflect the support they’ve gotten for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
“Since day one, you have given us tons of positive feedback and support — the sheer volume of emails we’ve gotten since launch simply congratulating us for our efforts is both epic and heartwarming, and I wish every developer comes to have such a fantastic community,” he writes. “In terms of media reception, we’re really humbled by the scores the game has received all around the world. With an average of 90+ on every platform, Wild Hunt is our dream coming true.
“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the four million gamers worldwide who bought The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the first two weeks from launch. Four million RPG fans spending their hard-earned money on our game is a sign that we did something right, and you can be sure that we’ll harness all that positive energy and make the upcoming expansions worthy of the grand adventure that you’re telling us Wild Hunt already is! Until then, keep on enjoying Wild Hunt, do not forget to grab your weekly set of free DLCs, and stay tuned for constant updates and enhancement to the game we are continuously working on.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
