CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher series is a franchise that’s redefined the RPG. The fantasy-fuelled adventures of Geralt of Rivia have amassed millions of fans across the world, especially after the 2015 hit, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
It’s been confirmed that the series as a whole has now surpassed over 40 million sales worldwide [via ComicBook], with The Witcher 3‘s sales alone accounting for over 50% of that figure.
Despite now being nearly half a decade old, the love for the third game in the franchise isn’t ending anytime soon.
It’s just been announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch, which will get a definitive edition including all DLC available for the title.
Although no release date for the port has yet been confirmed, we do know it’s expected to launch sometime this year.
In other The Witcher news, Netflix is working hard to turn the beloved game (and book!) series into a television epic.
Fans are tentatively holding their breath, hoping that the likes of Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Cholotra and Adam Levy will be able to bring the beloved book and game characters to life, and give them the justice they deserve.
The show’s official premise reads: “Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
“But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.”
Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandso has given a release window of Q4 2019 for the series, meaning it’ll be hitting our screens anytime from October 2019. Which is great news. Hopefully.
