Was there ever really any doubt this game would do well? Guess not. CD Projekt has revealed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has sold 4 million copies since it launched on 19 May. It took two weeks to reach that sales milestone. That’s the equivalent of more than 285, 000 copies sold per day if you’re into that whole numbers sort of thing.
“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,” co-founder of CD Projekt RED Marcin Iwiński said on the game’s official website. “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!
Do note, however, that this figure likely represents (though not actually stated) pre-orders sales as well. Iwiński’s wording is a little ambiguous, but whatever the case may be, there are 4 million people traipsing around the war-torn and muddy countryside of Velen, hacking up anything that shows up as a red blip on the mini-map. Take THAT, red blips. If you want to know whether or not you too should be hacking up red blips, then read our review right over here. Spoiler: yes… yes you most definitely should.
