The third installment in the popular fantasy RPG series The Witcher launched just two weeks ago after great anticipation and now it has sold four million copies.
Matthew Handrahan of Gamesindustry.biz reports that Polish Developer and Publisher CD Projekt RED’s “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” has sold more than four million copies in just two weeks. Handrahan adds:
Selling four million units in a fortnight isn’t quite on the level of Skyrim, say, but it represents a huge step forward for CD Projekt. To put it in context, the first and second Witcher games sold six million units combined by the end of 2013. The Witcher 3 is already 66 per cent of the way there and it’s barely a month old.
As Winbeta reported at the time of the game’s launch, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” is an open world fantasy RPG, played from a third person point of view, where, as the series protagonist Geralt Rivia, the player explores a rich environment filled with merchant cities, pirate islands, dangerous mountain passes, and forgotten caverns.
The game is also scheduled for two future additional campaigns to be made available but can be purchased ahead of release with the digital bundle. “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” is available now on the Xbox Store for $59.99 for the standard version or for $84.99 for the digital bundle which includes future expansion packs.
