According to a Eurogamer report, CD Projekt RED's popular role-playing game, The Witcher 2, sold 1.1 million copies last year. Surprisingly, the first game managed to sell 400,000 units last year as well. While Steam sales numbers were not disclosed, apparently 270,000 units were sold via digital distribution, with 40,000 moved on GOG.com. We assume the rest of those sales are divided up among Steam and other digital distribution platforms including GameStop's Impulse, and GamersGate.
"I have to admit, though, that the sales results for The Witcher, five years on from the game's premier, are remarkable," said CDPR managing director Adam Badowski. "If anything, they prove that the content we put into our games ages well."
Speaking to Eurogamer, Adam Badowski and marketing manager Michal Platkow-Gilewski also revealed that CD Projekt Red was already working on properties for "the next generation of consoles." The developer's next two major new releases will be a new IP, and The Witcher 3. They'll be released for PC and next-generation consoles in the 2014 – 2015.
The studio is currently working on The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360.
