The Witcher series tops 6 million sales

First game in the RPG series launched on October 26, 2007

CD Projekt Red has announced that it has sold over six million The Witcher games.

The RPG series launched almost exactly six years ago on October 26, 2007. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings arrived in May 2011, while a third entry in the series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will hit PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2014.

CD Projekt Red released the infographic above to mark the occasion and show how the series has evolved over the past six years.

Head of studio Adam Badowski also said: "CD Projekt Red was built on the idea that giving gamers more is always worth it. Since the very beginning of our journey we have seen that the approach of inviting gamers into a dialogue with the developer is really important and can shake up the - sometimes self-destructive - business side of games. We hope you'll stay with us for the years to come and that we will continue to make these changes together."

Announced in February and built using CD Projekt Red's new RedEngine 3, The Witcher 3 will reportedly boast an open world 30 times larger than its predecessor's.

Last week, the game won the Golden Joystick award for Most Wanted, coming in ahead of Xbox One and PS4.
