CD Projekt RED has revealed that their amazing RPG, The Witcher 2, has sold 1.1 million copies in 2011. From those copies, only 270,000 were sold through digital services. In other words, retail sales were about 70%, proving that retail is not going anywhere and can be really successful. The Witcher 2 is slated for release on X360 and it will be interesting to see how well will it sell in Microsoft’s console.
In other news, CD Projekt revealed that the first Witcher has managed to sell 400K copies in 2011. This is shocking, given the fact that The Witcher is almost five years old.
CD Projekt RED’s Adam Badowski said:
“I have to admit, though, that the sales results for The Witcher, five years on from the game’s premier, are remarkable.”
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition is coming to the PC this April and will feature new content. This new content will be made available to all owners of The Witcher 2 fans for free via a patch.
