CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has proven to be a popular title among players, selling 4 million copies of the game in just 2 weeks. The PC copies of the game are included in that sum, but it seems that most players didn’t purchase the game through Steam.
CD Projekt, the parent company of Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red, has its own digital distribution site called GOG.com, where a large sum of Witcher fans bought the game for PC. In a recent statement, CD Projekt said that “about 690,000 total players have purchased the game through GOG.” Using my excellent math skills, I’d say thats a pretty fair share of 4 million – its also more copies than Steam and other PC distribution sites have sold combined.
Discount deals could be one thing that steered players from Steam. Some distribution sites, such as Green Man Gaming, offered keys for Witcher 3 at a discounted price on GOG. There were also deals on the GOG site itself, knocking as much as 20% off the price.
You can check out GOG.com right here to see what sort of deals you may be able to find. If you’ve played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC or any other platform, how are you liking it so far? Leave your comments below.
