CD Projekt RED has a lot to be proud of. A week before release, the company announced that pre-orders for the Witcher 3 had exceeded the 1 million mark.
Today, two weeks after release, CD Project RED confirmed that the final chapter in the White Wolf trilogy has been a roaring success, selling 4 million copies.
Marcin Iwanski, the co-founder of CD Projekt RED, took the opportunity to address the gamers who made this success possible:
Since day one, you have given us tons of positive feedback and support -- the sheer volume of emails we’ve gotten since launch simply congratulating us for our efforts is both epic and heartwarming, and I wish every developer comes to have such a fantastic community,” - Iwanski writes.
In terms of media reception, we’re really humbled by the scores the game has received all around the world. With an average of 90+ on every platform, Wild Hunt is our dream coming true.”
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the four million gamers worldwide who bought The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the first two weeks from launch. Four million RPG fans spending their hard-earned money on our game is a sign that we did something right, and you can be sure that we’ll harness all that positive energy and make the upcoming expansions worthy of the grand adventure that you’re telling us Wild Hunt already is! Until then, keep on enjoying Wild Hunt, do not forget to grab your weekly set of free DLCs, and stay tuned for constant updates and enhancement to the game we are continuously working on."
Iwanski concludes his open letter by adding:
Dandelion once said to Geralt that the world is changing, the sun is setting, and vodka’s running out -- go, play, and have fun!”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, while certainly not perfect, is one of the best and biggest RPGs in recent years. The game not only immerses players in a gigantic world, filled to the brim with meaningful content, but also tells a compelling story with a large cast of interesting and nuanced characters. CD Projekt RED delivered and they certainly deserve the success.
