The Witcher 3 sells 6m copies

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has sold 6m copies worldwide, developer CD Projekt Red has announced.

The company's latest financial results show Wild Hunt has sold a total of 6,014,576 units – roughly 1m a week on average since the game's launch. The studio adds 1m copies of the game have been activated through distribution partner GOG.

"We've been hard at work delivering you new content, fixing what needed to be fixed, and secretly plotting how to rock this boat we call the RPG genre even more," studio head Adam Badowski stated.

"Yes, six million copies is a great achievement for a company making RPGs, but this business is not only about that. If our games are a gallery of sound, picture and text — you are the visitors of this gallery. To an artist, there's no sweeter sight than people enjoying their work. That's why, in the name of all the devs in the studio, I'd like to say thanks to each and every one of you."

CD Projekt also revealed The Witcher 3 carried a 53m budget, and that net profits for the first half of 2015 reached 41m for the developer.
