Developer celebrates fantasy RPG’s sixth birthday with sales milestone

The Witcher series has racked up six million sales in the six years of its existence, developer CD Projekt has confirmed.

In celebration of the fantasy RPG’s sixth birthday, the developer explained that the Witcher games have sold six million copies worldwide.

“CD Projekt Red was built on the idea that giving gamers more is always worth it. Since the very beginning of our journey we have seen that the approach of inviting gamers into a dialogue with the developer is really important and can shake up the – sometimes self-destructive – business side of games. We hope you’ll stay with us for the years to come and that we will continue to make these changes together,” said Adam Badowski, head of studio at CD Projekt.

Originally based on a series of short stories by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher first appeared on PC in 2007. The sequel, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was the title’s first appearance on console when it came to Xbox 360.

Next on the horizon for CD Projekt is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which is in development for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and set for a 2014 release.
