The wind is howling; CD Projekt Red has just released new financial statements that show how\u00a0<em>The Witcher 3<\/em> fared in 201449, and the results are a bit surprising. 53% of all purchases in 2019 were on PC; PlayStation 4 had 26%, Nintendo Switch was 11%, and Xbox One accounted for 10% of the sales. 2019 brought an additional 6,500,000 sales in the fifth year since its original release, cementing its standard-bearing pro-consumer DLC practices and community-building presence that CD Projekt has been know and celebrated for.\r\n\r\nEvery year since\u00a0<em>The Witcher 3<\/em> has released, it has continued to sell surprisingly well on PC versus other consoles; not one year since its release beyond 2015 has any console outsold <em>The Witcher 3<\/em> in comparison to PC sales. In 2015, PlayStation 4 purchases accounted for a whopping 48% versus 31% on PC.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/BenjiSales\/status\/1247941630373572608\r\n\r\nIt bodes well for what many consider to be a PC-centered franchise with modding tools and libraries available, and CD Projekt Red's stance on never including DRM in their has clearly not been a factor in regards of selling the product, in spite of many companies doubling down on digital rights management protection for their titles; some stacking more than two additional protections on top of a software service such as Denuvo Anti-Tamper.\r\n\r\n<em>The Witcher 3<\/em> has now sold well over 28,000,000 copies internationally in both physical and digital mediums, although 2019 saw consumers more readily approaching digital ownership with 82% of sales being digital.\r\n\r\nThe financial report goes well beyond merely how\u00a0<em>The Witcher 3<\/em> sold in 2019; they also talk at length about the upcoming <em>Cyberpunk 2077<\/em>, and how monumentally hyped everyone is to explore the futuristic world where we'll encounter not only Keanu Reeves in all of his meme-styled glory, along with the seedier underbelly of Night City.\r\n\r\nCD Projekt Red has reported that the level of interest they're seeing is 'enormous', likely due primarily to the reception that\u00a0<em>The Witcher 3<\/em> received. With fantastic levels of hype though comes a far sharper critical focus on the title from fans and critics alike, and it's likely going to be difficult to please literally everyone with a new scope for the studio to handle; while\u00a0<em>The Witcher 3<\/em> dealt primarily with melee combat, the projectiles were admittedly a bit rough around the edges in comparison to how well the melee combat felt.\r\n\r\nThese levels of anticipation are likely somewhat to blame for\u00a0<em>Cyberpunk 2077<\/em> being delayed to September this year, missing their April launch that CD Projekt Red. If\u00a0<em>The Witcher 3<\/em> is any indication, however, it's going to be a title that is more than worth the wait.
