Since it released later last month, CD Projekt RED’s long-awaited and highly-anticipated The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has earned rave reviews and critical acclaim from both gaming outlets and gamers alike, with the studio now celebrating and offering their thanks to a exceptional new milestone for the open-world RPG.

CD Projekt RED posted an open letter by co-founder Marcin Iwiński revealing that since launch, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has sold four million copies in just over two weeks since release, marking an incredible achievement for both the studio, the title, and for its numerous fans and supporters. Iwiński detailed in his letter on the game’s official website:

May 19th was a crucial date for all of us here at CD PROJEKT RED — we released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, our open world role-playing game that we had been hard at work on for over 3 years. Since day one, you have given us tons of positive feedback and support — the sheer volume of emails we’ve gotten since launch simply congratulating us for our efforts is both epic and heartwarming, and I wish every developer comes to have such a fantastic community. In terms of media reception, we’re really humbled by the scores the game has received all around the world. With an average of 90+ on every platform, Wild Hunt is our dream coming true.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the four million gamers worldwide who bought The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the first two weeks from launch. Four million RPG fans spending their hard-earned money on our game is a sign that we did something right, and you can be sure that we’ll harness all that positive energy and make the upcoming expansions worthy of the grand adventure that you’re telling us Wild Hunt already is! Until then, keep on enjoying Wild Hunt, do not forget to grab your weekly set of free DLCs, and stay tuned for constant updates and enhancement to the game we are continuously working on.
