CD Projekt RED’s wildly ambitious RPG offering, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has surpassed a notable milestone regarding pre-order numbers. The Polish developer announced today that Geralt’s multiplatform adventure has secured over 1,000,000 pre-orders from eager gamers worldwide. This is impressive when you take into account that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings didn’t even hit this sales figure within three months of its release.
Co-founder of CD Projekt RED, Marcin Iwiński, was excited by this news and shared the following statement with the Witcher community:
“We’ve crossed the 1 million pre-order milestone and it’s all thanks to you guys! We would like to thank all the gamers for their trust and support. This is the last stretch and we’re pushing hard — over the last two weeks, we’ve increased performance on all platforms and started working full speed on the expansions, Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine.”
We still have eight days to go before we can get our hands on this highly-anticipated title (and likely GOTY contender) when it hits physical and digital store shelves on May 19th.
