After launching to immense critical acclaim and exceptional sales, CD Projekt RED’s long-awaited The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launched to smashing success last month, and in a new video from the developer some new insights were given to the game’s player base, in particular to the PC version of the title.

A new video released through GOG.com’s official YouTube channel gave a slew of statistics for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, revealing that on PC the game currently holds its largest share of players on the company’s recently-released GOG Galaxy digital platform, a surprising reveal given the dominance of Steam as the largest PC platform available.

In the video, CD Projekt RED and GOG revealed the following stats for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for its GOG-based PC version, compared to other PC platforms:

  • 693,000 owners on GOG Galaxy, 613,000 owners on all other PC platforms combined
  • 28 hours played on average
  • 127 hours played by top 1% of players playing The Witcher 3 through GOG
  • Over 15.5 million hours played, equaling over 1,770 years combined
  • Average player unlocked 18% of achievements
