The Witcher 3 Crosses 4 Million Sales Threshold In Just Two Weeks

A lot of work goes into a creating a video game. Development studio CD Projekt Red knows that as well as anyone, and after three years of blood, sweat, and tears, the company's newest title, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, released to the public. Just two weeks after launch, the title reached 4 million sales, which is something CD Projekt Red doesn't take lightly.

"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," CD Projekt Red said while announcing the two-week sales figure. "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."

It's nice to see things turn out so well after suffering through multiple delays. Witcher 3 was originally supposed to launch in late 2014 before getting pushed back to February 2015. Then in late February, CD Projekt Red announced a three month delay to May 19, 2015, which is when the game actually launched.

When announcing the most recent delay, CD Projekt Red told the community that it owed them an apology because it had "set the release date too hastily." The company explained that it wanted to make "one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that. So, we apologize and ask for your trust."

It's safe to say all is forgiven at this point.
