In the context: the Witcher 3 is certainly one of the best matches ever made and its success has recently increased thanks to Netflix’s TV show. Due to the enormous success of the title of CD Projekt Red, the studio’s steam sales have now increased.
In a recent twist, The Witcher 3 has made over $50 million available on Steam’s platform since 1 October 2018. Henry Cavill’s show, which led to a spike in players, certainly helped the accomplishment.
The average number of players in the game for January has hit over 48,000, according to the Steam Chart Analytics. It is the second highest since its 51,000 average startup date in May. Meanwhile, last month the number of peak players surpassed 103,000 and it was the first time six figures were reached.
Besides the brilliant RPG game, sales for The Witcher 3 rose 554% in December.
As noted by CD Projekt Red, 80% of all subsequent TW3 sales on Steam will now be made available to the client. The profits earned by a producer for his Steam games are dependent on their revenues. Valve usually takes 30% but that’s 25% if a game makes 10 million dollars, and it falls by 5% if it’s running 50 million dollars, like the Witcher 3.
Last month, we also learned that The Witcher will become the biggest first season of Netflix ever. In its first four weeks of launch, the streaming service said about 76 million households “watched” the movie, although after two minutes of content Netflix has now recorded an episode or a film.
The Witcher’s second season before the first arrived was confirmed. Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane in Game of Thrones, is said to have starred as Nivellin. We have also heard reports that the role of Vesemir was given to Mark Hamill.
