We are proud to announce that Geralt of Rivia, as known from your favorite video games, is now six years old!
Six years have passed since we’ve embarked on the magical journey of bringing one of the most unique and recognizable fantasy worlds into the realm of video gaming. We’ve started with a dream and a few rough ideas and today we’re on the forefront of the next generation of role playing games.
The continued support of gamers worldwide has been one of the keys to our success and a reason we have such a strong foundation to build from. We’d like to announce that six million copies of The Witcher games have been sold up to this day and our community is growing into one of the strongest RPG fandoms in the world. It is because of your dedication and constant involvement that the Xbox 360® version of The Witcher 2 has achieved “Classics” status in Europe and we are able to grow as a developer and bring you games that we hope will stay with you for years.
“CD Projekt RED was built on the idea that giving gamers more is always worth it. Since the very beginning of our journey we have seen that the approach of inviting gamers into a dialogue with the developer is really important and can shake up the – sometimes self-destructive – business side of games. We hope you’ll stay with us for the years to come and that we will continue to make these changes together,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD Projekt RED
We’ve prepared an infographic to show how The Witcher series evolved during the years. You can download it here.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is only $19.99/19.99€ on Xbox 360 – it’s the perfect time to embark on one of the most captivating dark fantasy adventures on the current generation. Visit buy.thewitcher.com for more information!

Gamescom 2013 has ended, yet our journey is far from over. During the expo we hooked Witcher fans up with more than 10,000 t-shirts, gave 254 interviews and presented the game to more than 880 journalists from 37 countries. Thank you all for making it a fantastic gamescom!
We’ve prepared a little treat for you – a video showing some of the backstage happenings from the fair! Gamescom facts, off the record statements, cheeky Instagram selfies and the-Ice-Giant-riding-the-escalator-prank are all included. We hope you’ll have as much fun watching as we had making it.

We are proud to present The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt “Killing Monsters” cinematic trailer to the public for the first time, offering a thrilling glimpse into the morally ambiguous universe of Geralt of Rivia.
“Killing Monsters” portrays the cruel and gritty world of The Witcher and foreshadows the mature mood of the upcoming story-driven RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, set for release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2014.
“Actions speak louder than words. We wanted this short movie to communicate that Geralt, despite being seen as a sellsword by many, has his own code of conduct and operates outside of the dirty morality of the world he lives in,” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED.
“Killing Monsters was a great opportunity to show the ambience of No Man’s Land – one of the vast areas in the game that the players will visit during their adventure. The overwhelming feeling of despair can be quite shocking, especially when you consider who the real monster is,” Badowski added.
