The Witcher Sells 1 Million Copies On 'Dead' Platform


Noting the number represent sales to "real, live people" playing on a platform some have declared "dead", CD Projekt RED announced that its debut project The Witcher (PC) has sold through one million copies since the game's release twelve months ago.

"We created The Witcher with the intent of becoming an acclaimed and successful development studio that always made games for its fans; we spent more than $11 million developing The Witcher and the Enhanced Edition, and it sure is nice to make some of that money back!" said CEO Adam Kicinski about the milestone.

CD Projekt followed the original release of The Witcher with an Enhanced Edition last month, offering re-recorded dialogue, additional NPCs models, improved load times and many other improvements. The company also recently launched Good Old Games, a digital distribution platform for classic PC games.

      Better not tell those people the uncensored cards can be found on RapidShare along with the patch that places them in the game.

        People like you spit in the face of the devs who made the positive statements in this news. Don't you realize that with what they said, they are actually fighting for the users? Everyone else releases PC stuff later because of the fear of pirates, because it sells better on consoles. Because they want to declare the PC platform as dead. They actually proved that you can make money, even if you are a not well known studio

          Don't you realize that these two are talking about a couple different art assets that they removed from the NA version and not piracy?
