CD Projekt Red announced today that it has sold over 4 million copies of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The sales milestone was achieved in just two weeks since the release of the game. Obviously, a significant chunk of it were pre-orders, but that doesn't diminish the value of this feat by any means.
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.
Two expansions for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are going to be released later this year.
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!
Also, CDPR promised 16 free DLCs to buyers of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and they are going to honor that.
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.
UPDATE 1: Wondering how much it cost to develop The Witcher 3? Well, the development cost for the Polish studio was $32 million, whereas $35 million was spent on marketing. The marketing budget was greater than the development budget!
UPDATE 2: Another little update on The Witcher 3 sales figures (via DSOGaming). Of the 4 million copies sold, 1.3 million are copies of the PC version of Wild Hunt. Breaking down that figure further, about 700,000 gamers bought The Witcher 3 via GOG Galaxy. The rest of the sales came from Steam, presumably.
