The Witcher is officially one of the most successful game series of all time

The Witcher is a behemoth, and new data from The Witcher game developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) gives us a better understanding of just how massive it is. The Witcher video games have sold more than 75 million copies, with The Witcher 3. Wild Hunt alone has accounted for more than 50 million of those sales, as reported by the studio.

These kinds of figures indicate that the series is one of the most successful video game franchises of all time. In comparison, The Witcher 3 is within striking reach of blockbuster smashes like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Red Dead Redemption 2. Both of which have sold more than 53 million copies and are among the best-selling games of all time.

Upcoming Projects

The sales figures of The Witcher franchise are certain to rise significantly in the coming years. CDPR recently published a next-gen update for The Witcher 3 in December. CDPR is also developing several other titles in The Witcher franchise. Some of the titles include a remake of the first Witcher game, a new Witcher trilogy, and a spinoff dubbed Project Sirius. However, CDPR recently announced that the game is being reassessed.

Hopefully, those new titles do better than Cyberpunk 2077 at launch. However, CDPR essentially turned that game around when it  released a next-gen patch for it in February 2022. We’ll be hearing a lot more about Cyberpunk 2077 in the near future. According to CDPR, the upcoming big expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, Phantom Liberty, will be showcased at the invite-only Play Days event of Summer Game Fest in June. This is Cyberpunk’s upcoming big expansion and will be starring Idris Elba.

Netflix is also betting big on The Witcher franchise, having just extended its Witcher TV series for a fifth season despite the fact that the third season has yet to be released. The third season will be the final one with Henry Cavill as Geralt; Liam Hemsworth will take over in season four.

Final Thoughts: Unparalleled Success and Bright Future

The Witcher franchise has achieved remarkable success in the gaming world. Its influence extends far beyond the realm of video games. With an impressive sales record, a successful TV adaptation, and a dedicated fanbase, The Witcher’s success is truly unparalleled. The Witcher’s legacy as one of the most successful game series of all time is secure. Its impact on the gaming industry will be felt for years to come.
