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

Yeah and let's not forget that:
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.
Witcher 1 is PC exclusive game
Witcher 2 was timed PC exclusive with delayed X360 port.
PS. I've got 5 copies myself :D
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.
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.
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
I haven't played the W2 but from the videos i've watched the combat looked nothing like Demon's Souls.
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
It was actually the most common complain for the game.
And with a multiplatform release and great impressions from the press, it seems very likely.
That looks pretty bad, ctually. Hopefully the character model has been updated. The other ones we have seen look much better.
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.
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.
