‘The Witcher’ is officially one of the most successful game series of all time – CD Projekt Red

According to new numbers from CD Projekt Red (CDPR), the developer of the Witcher games, the series has sold more than 75 million copies, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt accounting for at least 50 million of those sales.

This performance puts The Witcher 3 in stiff competition with other best-selling games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Red Dead Redemption 2, which have sold more than 53 million copies.

The success of The Witcher franchise will continue, with CDPR releasing a next-gen update for The Witcher 3 in December while several other Witcher games are in the works. These include a re-release of the first Witcher game, a new Witcher trilogy, and a Venus codenamed “Project Sirius”. Let’s just hope these new titles will be better at launch than Cyberpunk 2077, though CDPR has largely fixed the game’s issues, and released a next-gen patch for it in February 2022.

We’ll soon be hearing more about Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, the game’s upcoming major expansion starring Idris Elba as one of the big names at Summer Game Fest, CDPR announced this week.

Netflix is ‚Äč‚Äčalso betting on The Witcher franchise, renewing the TV series of the same name for a fifth season, although the third season has yet to start airing. Season 3 will be Henry Cavill’s last as Geralt, with Liam Hemsworth taking over the role from season 4.
