CD Projeckt RED's The Witcher 2 stands at 940k copies sold as the first half of 2011 passes, and over 400k of those were during its launch week in May.

The original game cleared 1 million units which CD Projekt hailed as a tremendous achievement. The Witcher 2 releases on Xbox 360 next year.


The studio hails the original RPG title's success as tremendous given it was an unknown IP from an unknown developer. CD Projeckt RED saw profits of $7.09 million for the first half of 2011 as it generated approximately $27.92 million in revenue.

The Witcher 2 releases on Xbox 360 in early 2012. The studio will also be releasing a major update for the PC game which will bring it to 'Version 2.0' they say.

And I still didn't played even the first one. Bugs and CTDs that I heard of is keeping me away from it. Did they patch those?

[EDIT] Bought it. Looks like a decent sum of patches have been released. Bloody 50 EUR! Man what a BS.

PC gaming dead to piracy, horsefart! Must be good marketing or people like it more this way, I kinda think it lost what was good about the witcher, 3 style combat, click thing.

Still playing the first one (picked it up for $4.50 on sale). By the time I get around to the sequel it should be all patched-up. Good show for CD Projekt.

It's a lot less than it deserves, but I guess it's good enough to keep them working on the sequel
