CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher series is one of the more popular RPGs around. However, it seems that thanks to Netflix’s The Witcher series, the game appears to be more popular than ever. This is according to recent stats on Steam which revealed that The Witcher 3 is actually more popular than it was at launch.
The Witcher 3, when it first debuted back in 2015, had a concurrent player count of 92,268. However, since The Witcher series was released, the new stats for the game is at 94,601. While the difference isn’t particularly huge, the fact that it surpassed the original concurrent player count even four years after the game was launched speaks volumes.
The game has even managed to make its way into Steam’s top 10 games, with it being the eighth most-played game at this point in time. Other games in The Witcher series have also seen an increase in popularity, where The Witcher: Enhanced Edition managed to break into Steam’s top 100 most-played games.
It also broke its concurrent player record where it peaked at over 12,000 players. For players who are hoping to see more The Witcher games, CD Projekt Red recently signed a new deal with The Witcher’s author, Andrezj Sapkowski, hinting that we could be seeing new titles in the future. However, with the developer working on Cyberpunk 2077, maybe don’t hold your breath just yet.
