CD Projekt RED Says That The Witcher Sold Best on the PC
Cernescu Andrei / 2 years ago
We all know that the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was an incredible success, as it basically allowed CD Projekt RED to stand alongside other industry giants when it comes to developing AAA titles. Hopefully, the Polish developer will be able to use this momentum to create other exciting games, including more from the Witcher franchise. Speaking of which, sources indicate that the company’s CEO, Marcin Iwinski, was recently interviewed by YouTube’s Maciej Pius and used this opportunity to speak about the franchise’s success on various platforms, PC included. Apparently, The Witcher recorded the best overall sales on the PC, but consoles aren’t too much behind either.
“Consoles began for real with PS2 from Sony, and then with X360. PS wasn’t available for everyone. It was an expensive toy with expensive games. I was already distributing games at that time and I remember what was the expenditure for video games. PS was available for more affluent people and PS2 was available for the masses and started to develop this market. However, the PC still holds strong. Most of The Witcher sales are for the PC, though consoles started selling very well. “
Apart from the statement above, Marcin also pointed out that he prefers gaming on the PC and that he hasn’t played Fallout 4 yet. He doesn’t know what he’s missing, right?
