CD Projekt RED’s upcoming open world adventure, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is certainly making an impression
It looks like people can’t wait to get their hands on CD Projekt RED’s latest videogame, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as not only have some retailers been letting the game sell early – causing a headache for CD PR – but the developer has revealed that so far the game has received over one million pre-orders.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launches on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on May 19 and already the game has amassed a huge following with the developer revealing that the game has already received more than a million pre-order sales. Though that may not always translate to actual sales, it goes to show that a good number of people are keen on getting their hands on the game at some point. Unfortunately the studio didn’t reveal a breakdown of what platforms had more pre-sales than others.
Co-founder of CD Projekt RED, Marcin Iwinski said:
“We’ve crossed the 1 million pre-order milestone and it’s all thanks to you guys! We would like to thank all the gamers for their trust and support. This is the last stretch and we’re pushing hard — over the last two weeks, we’ve increased performance on all platforms and started working full speed on the expansions, Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine.”
The DLC mentioned should make fans pretty happy as CD Projekt RED plan on releasing around 16 pieces of DLC absolutely free. There are however two expansions planned that’ll add 30 hours to the already massive 200 hour game, but players can get the full experience without those. The developer plans to release additional content for free on a weekly basis in pairs, starting from May 20.
