Witcher 3 Game Sales Top 50 Million Globally

Witcher 3 Game Sales Top 50 Million Globally


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Sells Over 50 Million Copies Worldwide

CD Projekt Red, the publisher of the video game The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, confirmed that the game has sold over 50 million copies worldwide. This, along with the franchise’s total sales, which includes earlier titles such as The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, makes it one of the most successful gaming series in history with over 75 million units sold. The Witcher 3 now ranks ninth on the list of the best-selling titles in history, putting it just behind Red Dead Redemption 2 (which sold 53 million copies). However, these numbers are expected to grow due to the game’s newly released next-gen update, which includes ray-tracing support, improved console performance, and quality-of-life changes.

The Future of The Witcher Franchise

“This shows the tremendous strength of the franchise,” says Piotr Nielubowicz, CFO of CD Projekt Red, in a video summarizing the company’s Q1 financial results. “This makes us even more excited with what the future holds, and with our upcoming projects set in the Witcher universe.” CD Projekt Red is currently working on a brand-new Witcher trilogy to be released within a six-year period, starting with the release of the first one — codenamed Witcher Polaris. The studio confirmed that it would be switching from its in-house engine to Unreal Engine 5 for this new trilogy. The sequels in the trilogy will benefit from the groundwork laid out in the first game, indicating that the plan appears to be a feasible one for the team.

Remaking the First Witcher Game

CD Projekt Red is also receiving support from Epic Games for the full-blown remake of the first Witcher game, codenamed Canis Majoris. This reimagining aims to take an open-world approach while following the same story as the original 2007 game that saw Geralt of Rivia searching for his memories. The studio is remaking a game from its portfolio for the first time with this title. Additionally, there is the multiplayer spin-off title, codenamed Sirius, which underwent an internal overhaul earlier this month. The lead developer, The Molasses Flood, laid off 29 employees to define a new framework for the game. In short, the story mode will be the game’s core foundation.

Cyberpunk 2077 and the Phantom Liberty Expansion

Finally, CD Projekt Red will be revealing information about its other big title, Cyberpunk 2077, soon at the Summer Game Fest. The information given will be about the Phantom Liberty expansion, starring Idris Elba as Solomon Reed, an FIA Agent for the New United States of America. The presentation for this game has been included in the Play Days category, a special invite-only preview event for media and influencers. The Summer Game Fest, hosted by Geoff Keighley, will start June 9 at 12:30 am IST in India/ June 8 at 12 pm PT in the US, live from the YouTube Theatre in Los Angeles. Users can use all major live-streaming platforms, including Twitch, Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube, to stream the event.


In conclusion, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt’s latest sales figures and its overall success proves the strength of the franchise. CD Projekt Red is working on a brand-new Witcher trilogy and is receiving support from Epic Games for its full-blown remake of the first Witcher game. With all of the fantastic content The Witcher franchise has provided, there is a lot to look forward to in the future.
