The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red announced today that the role-playing game series has now sold more than 5 million copies, up from 4 million last summer.
According to company CEO Adam Kicinski, the 2012 Xbox 360 debut of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was a major contributor to the increased sales.
To celebrate the new sales milestone, CD Projekt Red has dropped the price of The Witcher 2 on the Xbox 360 to $30. In addition, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut ($5) and The Witcher 2 ($10) are 50 percent off through GOG and Steam until February 8.
