    Hey Gamers!

    Time does fly! These few months since launch passed faster than you can say potestaquisitor. We’ve been hard at work delivering you new content, fixing what needed to be fixed, and secretly plotting how to rock this boat we call the RPG genre even more. We’ve just concluded our shareholder conference where we announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt family got a bit bigger -- we sold over 6 million copies of the game in six weeks since launch. Worry not, I won’t discuss any financial stuff here. I would, however, like to give you some insight on what that means to us as game creators.

    One could think we have six million reasons to be happy and that’s it. We do, but that number is also a big responsibility and I want everyone to know that we, as a studio, realize that. For us, all your high praise, all the positive reviews, are also an obligation -- we’ve made a really good game but there’s still a long road ahead of us. Everyone here in CD PROJEKT RED is really attached to their work and how you, the gamers, perceive it. RED is full of artists, wild dreamers and people crazy about what they do (and sometimes just plain crazy). We lose sleep over that particular color the sun has when it sets over Velen, and argue over arranging the furniture in a house the majority of gamers will probably never see. We’re not the kind of people who are easily satisfied and we always strive for more. I’d like you to know that.

    Yes, six million copies is a great achievement for a company making RPGs, but this business is not only about that. If our games are a gallery of sound, picture and text - you are the visitors of this gallery. To an artist, there’s no sweeter sight than people enjoying their work. That’s why, in the name of all the devs in the studio, I’d like to say thanks to each and every one of you.

    Thanks!

    Adam Badowski,
    Head of Studio

    That's kinda surprising, Witcher is kinda niche because it's very adult themes but the second sold well and really got the word out. They even own and operate gog.com. It's not my cup of tea though, people sure seem to love it though as seen by the sales. Still a long ways to reach Skyrim however.

    Well that is the big number. Game is amazing, but who would ever guess that after 4 months, 6 million copies got sold. Plus, it is kinda expensive, but I think it should be much more than it's current price. GJ, developers.

    Hmmm, R5... is it a laptop? An i5 and 8GB RAM would be fine on paper (though many different i5's), I don't think the graphics card would be enough though. Witcher 3 is pretty demanding. Here are the requirements:

    Minimum System Requirements
    • Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz
    • AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940
    • Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660
    • AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870
    • RAM 6GB
    • OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)
    • DirectX 11
    • HDD Space 40 GB
    Recommended System Requirements
    • Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3,4 GHz
    • AMD CPU AMD FX-8350 4 GHz
    • Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 770
    • AMD GPU Radeon R9 290
    • RAM 8GB
    • OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)
    • DirectX 11
    • HDD Space 40 GB
