Just how big was The Witcher III: Wild Hunt for CD Projekt RED? Well, current data from the Polish developer pegs the epic open worlder at over 20 million units – that’s more than half the entire series’ lifetime sales to date. Of course, the statistic takes into account the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the title – and the figure will surely be boosted by the impending Nintendo Switch edition as well.
To put things into perspective, the last sales figure attributed to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – one of the biggest and most re-released titles of all-time – put it at 30 million units. That was back in 2016. It’s still a long way off Grand Theft Auto V, which was estimated to be at around 85 million units back at the tail-end of 2017, but it’s a staggering result nonetheless. We have a sneaking suspicion that Cyberpunk 2077 may do even better, too.
