Witcher 3 sells 6 million copies

CD Projekt Red's open-world RPG reaches new sales milestone.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sold more than 6 million copies during its first six weeks, developer CD Projekt Red announced on Wednesday. The company revealed the new sales figure, up from 4 million in its first two weeks, as part of its latest earnings report. The exact sales figure is 6,014,576.

Released in May to glowing reviews, The Witcher 3 is expected to be the final entry in hero Geralt's story, though not necessarily the last game in the series. Whatever the case, you shouldn't expect CD Projekt Red to release another Witcher game anytime soon, as the Polish studio is now focusing on Cyberpunk 2077.

"It deserves some rest," Iwinski said about The Witcher series earlier this month. "The past 10 years the team has been working on swords and castles and medieval Slavic monsters. So I think it's time for some guns, androids, and some ammo. And a necropolis. So this is what we'll be working on."

CD Projekt Red isn't done supporting The Witcher 3 just yet, however. The first of the game's substantial-sounding paid add-ons, Hearts of Stone, will launch in October. Combined with the second expansion, Blood and Wine--coming in 2016--players can expect about 30 hours of additional gameplay.
