The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Has Sold More Copies On PC Than Consoles Combined – Developer

CEO, Marcin Iwinski on The Witcher 3 sales.

Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt did quite a brisker business when it came to the PC version, compared to the console versions, according to the game’s developer. CD Projekt RED has said the sales for the game overall have been a great success but there is still clearly more of a demand for the game on the PC than the PS4 or Xbox One. This is most likely due to the fact that PC gamers are still usually getting better graphics than what either of the consoles can offer.

The company’s CEO, Marcin Iwinski recently sat down for an interview with YouTube user Maciej Pius where he talked about why the PC versions of The Witcher 3 are still outselling their console counterparts. “Consoles began for real with PS2 from Sony, and then with X360. PS wasn’t available for everyone. It was an expensive toy with expensive games. I was already distributing games at that time and I remember what was the expenditure for video games. PS was available for more affluent people and PS2 was available for the masses and started to develop this market. However, the PC still holds strong.”

Iwinski did add that the console versions of the title are starting to catch up in sales. The company’s CEO also let slip that he personally prefers to game on the PC. This news comes as we’re still waiting to see just what the next batch of DLC is going to bring fans of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

    Great news! Hopefully this shows CDPR where their true fan base still lies, and they don’t sell out the PC community like so many other developers/publishers.

    Considering this news, plus the fact that Rise of the Tomb Raider sold more on PC than on Xbox, we may start to see more of a fair focus on PC gaming and not just the console market.

    I for one, would welcome such a shift.

    Actually, he only says that PC sales were better than console in Poland, not world-wide, and that he personally plays games mainly on the Mac.
