Although hopes are high for CD Projekt Red’s upcoming new RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, the last heavy-hitter from the company is still flying the flag high.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is quite possibly one of the best RPGs of all time, but it’s still immensely impressive to see it selling so well, four years after it first released.
In a statement, CD Projekt Red’s CFO Piotr Nielubowicz said [via PCGamer]: “Our financial result for the first half of the year was again mainly affected by sales of The Witcher 3, which remain strong. This further confirms our belief that investing in top-quality games pays off, and that such games may continue to sell well for many years,
“In the first half of 2019 gamers actually purchased more copies of The Witcher 3 than during the first half of the previous year!”
Congratulations, CD Projekt Red!
2019 has been a great year for fans of The Witcher, and it’s looking like CDPR can expect even more sales as the year goes on.
The launch of Netflix’s The Witcher series, which is set to hit screens later this year, might not be related to the games, but it’s likely to get more people playing than ever before.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is also expected to reach new players with its upcoming migration to the Nintendo Switch. Despite some fears over how well the power-limited console will run the game, there’s going to be a lot of people who want to take Geralt and Roach on another adventure without having to be glued to their computer.
Now’s a better time than ever to delve into the world of The Witcher!
The Witcher 3 will release, as a complete edition, on the Nintendo Switch, October 5 2019.
