CD Projekt Red thanks fans as The Witcher III sells a staggering 4 million copies

Yep, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is a hit to the tune of 4 million copies sold.

This is big, to put it plainly.

The Witcher has always been a popular series with RPG fans, but 4 million copies in less than a month is awesome and speaks to a bigger cross-appeal. Of course, it seems like Wild Hunt is more than deserving of that. A massive game with tons and tons of quests and things to do in a monster of an open-world, and with free weekly DLC would certainly place it pretty high on any gamer’s list of awesome titles.

And critics agree with some of the best scores around, including our own Benj, who slapped it with a 9.0 out of 10. And with all the acclaim and copies bought, comes a special ‘thank you’. Below you’ll find a letter from Marcin Iwiński, who’s the co-founder of CD Projekt Red. And if you’re one of the 4 million who bought the game, this one’s aimed right at you:

Dear Gamers,

May 19th was a crucial date for all of us here at CD PROJEKT RED — we released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, our open world role-playing game that we had been hard at work on for over 3 years. 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. 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.

Dandelion once said to Geralt that the world is changing, the sun is setting, and vodka’s running out — go, play, and have fun!

All the best,
Marcin Iwiński
