CD Projekt RED’s CEO, Marcin Iwinski, has confirmed that The Witcher franchise has sold more on the PC than on consoles. This was revealed in an interview with YouTube’s Maciej Pius who had the opportunity to sit down with Marcin Iwinski about the past, the present and the changes in video game industry.
As Marcin Iwinski said at one point:
“Consoles began for real with PS2 from Sony, and then with X360. PS wasn’t available for everyone. It was an expensive toy with expensive games. I was already distributing games at that time and I remember what was the expenditure for video games. PS was available for more affluent people and PS2 was available for the masses and started to develop this market. However, the PC still holds strong. Most of The Witcher sales are for the PC, though consoles started selling very well. “
Marcin also confirmed that he prefers playing on the PC, that he’s a big fan of RPG games, that he has not played yet Fallout 4, and that he really enjoyed Telltale’s games.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
