We've got fiscal report today from CDP

Total sales (i'm guessing it's shipped retail+digital sales) for Witcher 1 and Witcher 2 is 8 millions.

Previous known data was 7 millions in March 2013


Also some minor facts:

CDP has 51,2 millions PLN in cash reserve (around 12M EUR)

Witcher 3 will be distributed by 17 partners in 109 countries

Well, to be fair a lot of that last half will be under $5 sales on steam.

Still, that's awesome! Not too shabby for only 2 entries.

Not sure, but I think I bought W2 for 2.50. Or maybe that was the first game.

I came here to say that.

Man, I can't wait for 3. I've been replaying 1 and 2 just to prepare my body.

Yeah and let's not forget that:

Witcher 1 is PC exclusive game
Witcher 2 was timed PC exclusive with delayed X360 port.

PS. I've got 5 copies myself :D

Such a fantastic franchise, and 3 is my most anticipated game in a good long while

Looking forward to the Witcherverse post Geralt.

I've bought The Witcher 1 at least 5 times for gifts and the The Witcher 2 at least 3 times. Witcher 2 was, once on PC on release, once on the console for support and then one to a buddy. I love the series.

I decided to start watching Let's Plays of the Witcher 1&2 yesterday to "prepare" for W3. Gameplay of the first two games doesn't interest me but the story seems really good.Really nice atmosphere too.

Wouldn't surprise me at all. Increased brand awareness, plus console ports day and date that (by and large) deliver the same experience, Witcher 3 should sell verrrry well.

Second one is nothing like the first, so you might enjoy it. Give it a try

Does it have that awful timed button press combat system from the first game?

If CDPR had the man power and time they could do something similar to Metro Redux to boost sales for W3 and future titles. Although that probably mean I will own 3 versions of W2 and 2 W1

No, it's a completely different combat system. Plays more like an action game. The devs said they were inspired by the Batman games and Demon's Souls when they created it

Excellent news, love that more people get to experience these excellent titles. With increased visibility for the Witcher 3, it could become mainstream similar to Skyrim.

I will sadly admit I never finished the first once because in my play through on a Mac it got to the point where it would randomly crash about 25% of the time there was a loading screen.

It's been a while, I honestly don't remember. It might have been in a video interview. But I know for sure that they mentioned DS as an inspiration

At the risk of sounding like a weapons grade hater, I don't like either of those games either. I'm going to just say Steam sales claimed another victim on this one.

I haven't played the W2 but from the videos i've watched the combat looked nothing like Demon's Souls.
It was actually the most common complain for the game.

Hopefully the combat is better the third time around as that was my biggest complaint about the previous games. Good sales though nice milestone.

In Witcher 3 related news, the Yennifer model sheet for cosplayers(PDF) is out. It's the first full view of her in game model. Although if it's like the Ciri and Geralt guides it's a much older version of the model from before the first trailer she was in.

I picked up 2 on sale 'cause at the time I was unsure if my capable, yet far from top of the line rig would play it well enough to enjoy it. Well it did, and I did enjoy it a good deal. So much so that I'm currently saving for some upgrades to be purchased and installed in time for 3. Let the hunt begin.

That's fantastic news, and well deserved. Here's hoping to double that with Witcher 3 after the exposure and mindshare already out there. I really needed to get around to playing the second game, myself.

That looks pretty bad, ctually. Hopefully the character model has been updated. The other ones we have seen look much better.

Regarding the new sales milestone, I hope with this much exposure they can get at least 1,5 to 2 million sales in the first few months, when they actually make a lot of money with it.
