After a mere two weeks on the market, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt has sold 4 million copies across all platforms, developer CD Projekt Red has announced.
This is the first tangible number that the studio has provided, after the critically-adorned threequel became the biggest UK launch of 2015. In a heartfelt open letter to fans, the Polish studio thanked those who have picked up the title for their continuing support, and asked users to keep their eyes peeled for more DLC to be released in the coming months.
Since day one, you have given us tons of positive feedback and support — 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.
Until then, keep on enjoying Wild Hunt, do not forget to grab your weekly set of free DLCs, and stay tuned for constant updates and enhancement to the game we are continuously working on.
Of the 16 pieces of free DLC that has been released for Wild Hunt, a total of 6 content packs have made their way into the wild. Acting as part of CD Projekt Red’s pragmatic approach to add-on content, these cosmetic items include Nifgaardian Armor and the ilk. All of this will act as a bridge between now and the release of the RPG’s first bona fide expansion in the form of Hearts and Stone, which is due later this year before the game’s sophomore add-on, Blood and Wine, debuts in 2016.
