The Witcher Franchise Sold More On PC Than On Consoles

The Witcher series started back in 2007, when the first part in the series was released for PC. The game instantly gained popularity due to the awesome and unique gameplay it featured. After four years, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was released which again gained a lot of popularity along with positive reviews. Its popularity can be seen from the fact that it sold more than 1.7 million units for the PC and Xbox 360 by May 2012. At last, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released on May 19, 2015, which is the latest installment in this critically acclaimed series. The game received a lot of game of the year awards along with high critics and reviews from all over the world. This was expected considering the fact that players could wander in an open-world filled with a lot of stuff.

The series is without any doubt, a huge success and CD Projekt Red has done a remarkable job by creating it. Recently, a YouTuber who goes by the name Maciej Pius got a chance to speak with the Co-Founder of CD Projekt Red, Marcin Iwinski, where he shared some details about the Witcher series. According to him, this critically acclaimed series sold more copies on PC than on Consoles. This was quite expected considering the fact that the PC industry is bigger than the Console industry.

Here’s what he had to say about this.

“Consoles began for real with PS2 from Sony, and then with X360. PS wasn’t available for everyone. It was an expensive toy with expensive games. I was already distributing games at that time and I remember what was the expenditure for video games. PS was available for more affluent people and PS2 was available for the masses and started to develop this market. However, the PC still holds strong. Most of The Witcher sales are for the PC, though consoles started selling very well. “

Personally, I love the Witcher series and would love to see another installment in this series. For now, we can just wait to see what CD Projekt Red has for us.
