The Witcher 3

Have you been watching the Netflix series The Witcher this past weekend? What do you think of it? The adaptation of the book series may be dividing opinions critically, but we've seen nothing but positive praise from fans. It sounds like a success, and the show has even had an impact on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's player numbers across the board.

Over the weekend, a reported 48,000 players once again took up the role of Geralt of Rivia on Steam, the highest number of concurrent users since the release of the game's Blood and Wine expansion pack in 2016. That's a huge increase, and it looks like player numbers on PlayStation 4 are also rising. Play Tracker reports popularity increases across the board, meaning that Sony console owners are also rejoining the search for Ciri.

We even considered kickstarting a new playthrough of the game, although then we reminded ourselves of the backlog currently on our hands. Has the Netflix series inspired you to replay The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? Toss a coin to your Witcher in the comments below.
