CD Projekt Red’s massively popular RPG has been a big success for the company. On the official Twitter account for The Witcher games, the company announced the series had sold over 50 million copies. That’s a lot of time with Geralt of Rivia and shows how much gamers have enjoyed journeying through the unique and interesting world.
Over 50 million adventurers joined Geralt on his journey from Kaer Morhen to Vizima, through Flotsam and Vergen, Velen and Novigrad to Skellige Isles and Toussaint, and many, many more places, time and time again…

Daniel Ahmad, Senior Analyst at Niko Partners, provided more context around those numbers in another tweet. According to him, The Witcher 3 was the driving catalyst. In 2013, the first two games had only sold a combined five million copies. The Witcher 3 sold over 28 million copies. It’s likely the interest generated from the third game, multiple platform releases, and a television tie-in has generated a lot of sales too.
As we head toward Cyberpunk 2077, we hope the quality and longevity of the next game brings us as much enjoyment, and congrats to CD Projekt Red on reaching this amazing milestone.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
