Witcher 3 Ships Almost 10 Million Copies - Report
A huge hit.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has shipped nearly 10 million copies, CD Projekt Red's Adam Kasinki reportedly said this week as part of the company's latest earnings report. Overall, the entire Witcher series has sold 20 million copies, meaning the latest game--released in May 2015--made up half of all franchise sales.

"In these 20 million units sold, The Witcher 3 constitutes almost 10 million," Kicinski said during the briefing, according to Twinfinite.
Before this, the latest Witcher 3 sales number that CD Projekt Red disclosed was 6 million copies back in August 2015. This was before the holiday shopping season, of course.
Released in May 2015 to glowing reviews, The Witcher 3 is expected to be the final entry in hero Geralt's story, though not necessarily the last game in the series. Whatever the case, you shouldn't expect CD Projekt Red to release another Witcher game anytime soon, as the Polish studio is now focusing on Cyberpunk 2077.
More Witcher 3 content is coming this year, however, as the Blood and Wine expansion is due to launch in the first half of the year. Perhaps more interestingly, CD Projekt Red also plans to ship a brand new game before the year is out.
