The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released on May 19th in the U.S. and quickly became more than a few critic's front-runner for game of the year, with many claiming that it sets a new standard for open-world RPGs. Now it seems it was a commercial smash as well.

CD Projekt Red is counting its crowns.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has sold an impressive four million copies (one of those would be mine) in just two weeks. Marcin Iwiński, one of the co-founders of CD Projekt Red has written an open-letter to the fans, thanking them for their support.

May 19th was a crucial date for all of us here at CD PROJEKT RED we released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, our open world role-playing game that we had been hard at work on for over 3 years. Since day one, you have given us tons of positive feedback and support the sheer volume of emails weve 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. In terms of media reception, were 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.
Id also like to take this opportunity to thank the four million gamers worldwide who bought The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the first two weeks from launch. Four million RPG fans spending their hard-earned money on our game is a sign that we did something right, and you can be sure that well harness all that positive energy and make the upcoming expansions worthy of the grand adventure that youre telling us Wild Hunt already is! Until then, keep on enjoying Wild Hunt, do not forget to grab your weekly set of free DLCs, and stay tuned for constant updates and enhancement to the game we are continuously working on.
