The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sold more than 4 million copies during its first 2 weeks in market, making it one of the year's most successful game launches.
Of course selling 4 million units in half a month isn't quite on the level of top hitters such as GTA: V or Skyrim, but it is a major achievement for studio CD Projekt Red which launched its first game in 2007. In fact, the previous two installments of The Witcher only sold 6 million copies throughout their lifetimes. It is quite telling that the latest sequel is already at two thirds of that sum that early in its lifetime.
"Since day one, you have given us tons of positive feedback and support," said Marcin Iwiński, CEO and co-founder of the studio. "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."
