The Witcher Among 100 Best Selling PC Games Ever, Claims Developer

Having sold over 1.2 million copies since its October 2007 debut, The Witcher is now among the 100 best-selling PC games of all time, claims developer CD Projekt RED.

"Because of those numbers, The Witcher has jumped onto the list of the 100 bestselling PC games in history," CD Projekt RED marketing coordinator Karol Zajaczkowski wrote in a forum post announcing the 1.2 million unit milestone.

The 1.2 million figure includes both retail and digital distribution sales, a CD Projekt representative confirmed with Shacknews.

Based off the works of Andrzej Sapkowski, the morally ambiguous fantasy role-playing game saw an enhanced re-release arrive last year with new content. A rebuilt console version, The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf, will hit PS3 and Xbox 360 this fall.

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

    1.2 million is enough to get into top 100? Good for them.

      Saints Row only sold 2 mil for the 360, and it's in the top 10 for that console. It goes down from there I'm afraid.

        That can't be true! Halo 3, every CoD so far, Madden, NFS, FIFA, Mass Effect, Fable 2...all of these games have sold at least 2 million. I just cannot believe 2 mil gets you in the top 10.

        I'm probably wrong though...

        The 360 is also about four years old, but the PC has decades of games
