That would put it up there with the best selling BioWare games. Maybe a tad above.

I think that leaves Diablo, Borderlands, and Bethesda's games as the better selling WRPGs.
Absolutely deserved. It's the first game I've played on the "new" consoles that's felt truly ambitious. Still playing through and absolutely loving every moment.

Great game, but a little too long in the tooth for my tastes. I managed to beat it though so I'm proud of myself.

Well deserved. I'm 2/3rds through the game and it is such an accomplishment. It does make me extremely sad that this will be Geralt's last voyage :(

Congratulations CDProjekt. Not only the game itself but also the localization effort they put in is truly impressive. Also one million people activated their game on GoG, seems to have been a real succes for their platform.

That's a lot more than I thought. Well deserved though, this is in my top 5 of best games made in the past decade.

If we counted it as a Namco game, it would be in strong contention for their best selling game ever, but they only helped distribute it in Europe.
Oh right, I hadn't realized they were doing it in Europe only.

Warner shipped it in the US and CD Projekt handled it themselves in Eastern Europe (the company actually started as a Eastern European game distributor).

They did get some loans to finish the project from their publishers, and the distributors paid marketing expenses in exchanged for preferred revenue/profit up front.

Good, the game deserves it. I'm like 18 hours in, but I'm playing on the hardest difficulty (Death March) so I expect to finish it by like October. I've died so many times.

I'm glad I decided to give it a go. Will not be surprised if it ends up being my GOTY.

CD Projekt Red is a monster.

Cyberpunk 2077 will break the internet.












When it releases in 2020.
