Since the release of The Witcher Netflix adaptation was released, we have seen a renewed interest and resurgence of people playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Well if you take a look at the number of concurrent players now, you will see that the CD Projekt Red title released 4 years ago has hit a new record on Steam.
The news was shared by Global Community Lead at CD Projekt Red, Marcin Momot. The game has eclipsed its peak concurrent player count, which is now even higher than when the game launched four years ago. It sits now just shy of 94,000 players.
The Netflix series certainly had a lot to do with the game’s resurgence, especially with the general consensus of the series being that it is really good. Combined with the fact that The Witcher 3 was on sale on Steam this holiday season and it all makes sense that the player base would come back to the game.
It’s an exciting time to be a Witcher fan, especially with the fact that CD Projekt Red and Andrzej Sapkowski (creator of The Witcher series of books) have reached a settlement agreement that will see more Witcher projects in the future.
