CD Projekt Red released their financial info for 2019, and looks like The Witcher 3 did amazingly well gaining its second largest year for game sales.
Witcher 3 Surpasses 28 Million Copies Sold
The Witcher 3 had its second best year in 2019, where over 5 million copies were sold, 53% being on PC, 26% on the Switch and 10% on Xbox One.
The latest figures shows that the Witcher 3 picked up quite a few sales in 2019, partly due to port for the Witcher 3 on the Switch which gained 700,000 copies sold and brought cross-save between Switch and PC. This adds to the staggering number of units sold over the Witcher 3’s lifetime surpassing 28 million copies sold, the exact number being 28.3 million.
The resurgence is also due to the tail end of last year, when the Witcher series released on Netflix, which helped top the number of concurrent players, even when the Witcher 3 launched in 2015. The RPG continues to be one of the best titles in the last decade, also included our Top 10 Best RPGs of the Decade.
