The Witcher sells 600,000 in three months

CD Projekt's debut game The Witcher has sold over 600,000 copies since going on sale three months ago, according to the developer.

CD Projekt's debut game The Witcher has sold over 600,000 copies since going on sale three months ago, according to the developer.

The worldwide sales of the PC game, published in Europe by Atari, are pushing the title to the developers intended audience of one million, says CEO Adam Kicinski.

"We are very happy with The Witcherâs performance to date. Our goal was — and still is — to reach one million copies sold during the first year," commented Kicinski.

"600,000 games sold in just three months brings us much closer to this ambitious goal. It"s a great success for us, made all the more impressive by the fact that The Witcher was created by a completely new team and it is our debut both as a game developer and in bringing our products to a global audience."

The company has promised continued support for the game, and is also preparing an announcement to be made next week during GDC.

"Our plans include continuous game support, the release of the powerful Dâjinni module editor, the continued release of game updates and patches, and in late spring gamers can expect a pretty big surprise, which will be revealed at a press conference really soon," added Kicinski.
