The Witcher 3 Reaches 6 Million Sold, Dev Offers Thanks

It's one of the most revered games of the year and it just keeps selling.

Developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has now sold 6 million copies. The well-received RPG only needed 6 weeks to reach that total, so about a million a week.

As a big thank you, studio boss Adam Badowski offered the following statements to all you role-playing lovers out there who have enjoyed The Witcher 3:

"One could think we have six million reasons to be happy and that's it. We do, but that number is also a big responsibility and I want everyone to know that we, as a studio, realize that. For us, all your high praise, all the positive reviews, are also an obligation--we've made a really good game but there's still a long road ahead of us.

Everyone here in CD Projekt Red is really attached to their work and how you, the gamers, perceive it. Red is full of artists, wild dreamers and people crazy about what they do (and sometimes just plain crazy). We lose sleep over that particular color the sun has when it sets over Velen, and argue over arranging the furniture in a house the majority of gamers will probably never see. We're not the kind of people who are easily satisfied and we always strive for more. I'd like you to know that.

Yes, six million copies is a great achievement for a company making RPGs, but this business is not only about that. If our games are a gallery of sound, picture and text--you are the visitors of this gallery. To an artist, there's no sweeter sight than people enjoying their work. That's why, in the name of all the devs in the studio, I'd like to say thanks to each and every one of you."

I still say we shouldn't gloss over how many problems this game had upon first releasing, but it's undoubtedly one of my favorite games of 2015 (and the generation thus far). Let's hope the upcoming expansions really add to the already addictive and wonderfully satisfying experience!

It's too bad I didn't buy a physical copy. I would've traded it towards an MGSV pre-order.

They did this without any use of DRM also. Congrats to them. I happen to be one of that 6 million.

Me too, I should get around to ripping the soundtrack.

Not only did I read the comic book that came with it, but I might start reading the books, once I finish my current series.

Bug fest indeed, but great great game. Standard armor needs a major improvement as far as aesthetics go. I mean all the "beautiful" armor must be crafted or purchased. Didn't realize this until around 4/5 completion! Haha
