Witcher 3 Sells 4 Million Copies in Two Weeks
"Four million RPG fans spending their hard-earned money on our game is a sign that we did something right."
Celebrated open-world role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sold more than 4 million copies in two weeks, developer CD Projekt Red announced on Tuesday. The game launched on May 19 behind rave reviews, including a rare perfect score from GameSpot.
"Four million RPG fans spending their hard-earned money on our game is a sign that we did something right," CD Projekt Red co-founder and joint CEO Marcin Iwinski said in an open letter.
That sales number certainly sounds impressive, but CD Projekt Red did not say if four million copies sold is in line with the developer’s internal projections and expectations for the game
Looking beyond those expansions, CD Projekt Red has said that, although The Witcher 3 is the final entry in Geralt's story, it may not be the final installment in the series. The possibility of a follow-up now seems even more likely with The Witcher 3 getting off to a hot start.
