CD Projekt Red’s Marcin Iwiński Says ‘Thank You’ to The Witcher 3 Customers

Mason Sylvia



CD Projekt Red, the Polish developer behind The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt have announced that the game has officially sold four million copies. It’s a tremendous number and a substantial accomplishment, especially for a small development company. Going back about eight years, CD Projekt Red was relatively unknown when they launched the first Witcher game and since, have become one of the most idolized and respected developers in the video game industry. With the latest and final installment in the tale of the series’ protagonist, Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has received undivided, critical acclaim from both media outlets, fans and newcomers to the franchise. In lieu of this, CD Projekt Red co-founder, Marcin Iwiński, took the time to write an open letter to gamers, highlighting his appreciation for their support.

Dear Gamers,
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 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. 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.
I’d 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 we’ll harness all that positive energy and make the upcoming expansions worthy of the grand adventure that you’re 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.
Dandelion once said to Geralt that the world is changing, the sun is setting, and vodka’s running out — go, play, and have fun!
All the best,
Marcin Iwiński
Co-founder, CD PROJEKT RED
