CD Projekt Red didn't specify how that figure breaks down between platforms or physical/digital.

Although The Witcher 3 doesn't arrive until next week, the game is already on sale at some stores in the United Arab Emirates.

Gameplay footage from early copies of the game has appeared on Twitch, but the streaming site is having none of it. Streams featuring the game before May 19 will be taken offline.

In other recent news about The Witcher 3, comedian Conan O'Brien played the game and explored its sexy, unicorn-filled world.

The Witcher 3 officially launches on May 19 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Digital copies of the game unlock at 1 AM CET, meaning gamers in the United States can actually start playing in the evening on May 18.
