The Witcher Series Only Sold 10 Million Copies Before The Witcher 3, Now At 25 Million Units

The Witcher 3

Analyst Daniel Ahmad has provided new details about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sales, making an interesting comparison with the original game and its sequel. According to Ahmad, The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings have cumulatively sold around 10 million copies; since the release of The Witcher 3, the franchise has reached 25 million units.

In a recent interview, The Witcher creator Andrzej Sapkowski told Eurogamer that "I was stupid enough to sell them rights to the whole bunch. They offered me a percentage of their profits. I said, 'No, there will be no profit at all - give me all my money right now! The whole amount.' It was stupid. I was stupid enough to leave everything in their hands because I didn't believe in their success. But who could foresee their success? I couldn't."

These figures allow you to understand why he regrets having sold all the rights relative to the Witcher series to CD Projekt without asking a share of the future profits... And those profits could even raise, considering that, as recently stated, CDPR still wants to tell stories from The Witcher universe once they're done with Cyberpunk 2077.
