The money the Witcher 3 earns to its producer continues to surprise
The five-year-old The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt continues to surprise with revenue from sales. The game, which earns $ 50 million in the period of October 2018-January 2020, makes its developer happy.
About five years after its release, CD Projekt Red’s (CDPR) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt continues to generate substantial revenue with sales figures. With the impact of the series published on Netflix, sales figures that have been booming have leveled CDPR on the Steam platform.
The company started to receive 80% of the shares of Steam after sales figures, which generated more than $ 50 million in revenue between October 1, 2018 and February 20, 2020. Steam, which gives 70% of the share to most developers, shares 75% of the games with a revenue of over $ 10 million and 80% of those with a revenue of $ 50 million.
The game, whose first season increased by 554% with the Witcher series published in December on Netflix, broke a record with the number of concurrent 100 thousand players reached at the end of January.
The accumulated revenue from sales of The Witcher 3 on @Steam platform for the period of time between October 1st 2018 and today has exceeded 50M USD. As a result, we are now getting 80% on any subsequent sales of TW3 on Steam.— CD PROJEKT IR (@CDPROJEKTRED_IR) February 20, 2020

It is highly appreciated that The Witcher series, whose second season was approved before the first season was released, still makes a five-year-old game popular. Let’s see if CDPR can achieve similar success with Cyberpunk 2077?
