CD Projekt Red has revealed that its action role-playing game (RPG), The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has sold an impressive 50 million copies since its launch in 2015. The game has been made available on various platforms, including Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and PC.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has received a few updates over the years. In 2019, the game was launched on the Nintendo Switch as a ‘Complete Edition,’ which included all of the game’s expansions and downloadable content (DLC). The game’s developers have also provided visual and performance upgrades to improve its compatibility with modern systems. The latest upgrades include enhanced textures, increased crowd density, and a ray tracing mode.
Awards and Recognition
The game has garnered several accolades over the years, including Game of the Year at The Game Awards in 2015 and SXSW in 2016. The game’s popularity has grown steadily, even after its initial launch, leading to the development of a spin-off game called Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and an upcoming Netflix series called The Witcher.
CD Projekt Red’s Recent Struggles
CD Projekt Red has had a rough start with its latest game, Cyberpunk 2077. Despite being highly anticipated, the game launched with numerous bugs and performance issues, leading to a lukewarm reception from gamers and critics alike. However, the studio has since made strides to improve the game’s performance and has announced an upcoming major expansion called Phantom Liberty, starring Idris Elba from The Wire.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s success can be attributed to its engaging storyline, memorable characters, and immersive world. The game’s developers have also shown their commitment to their fans by providing regular updates and improvements to the game. While CD Projekt Red may have stumbled with their latest release, it’s clear that they have the potential to create great games, and fans are eagerly looking forward to their future releases.
