As it turns out, CD Projekt Red’s Witcher franchise is kind of popular for a PC series. Just how popular? Try a tidy four million copies sold over five years. It must be magic.
Or, maybe it’s just that the games are really that good. Regardless, the Polish game developers can put a feather in their collective caps, as The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings have collectively broken the four million mark across Macs, PCs, and Xbox 360 sales.
From the original press release:
“I’m still amazed with the result we have achieved with The Witcher franchise,” aid Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio. “Many gamers on many platforms have been drawn to the vivid and complex world we have created. In the gaming world summer means a lot of great, hot deals. So if you still don’t own the game look out for both retail and digital special offers. ‘The Witcher’ and ‘The Witcher 2’ are great, robust RPGs, that every true gamer should own.”
On the 23rd of August, Japanese Xbox 360 gamers will be able to play “The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition”, and later this year the game will be also available for Mac computers.
It’s good news for everybody, especially since this could potentially revive a rumored console version of the original Witcher. If that happens, it’s probably safe to assume that a lot of people would be happy to see an HD collection of some sort.
