game news CD Projekt: With The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077, the studio reaches exorbitant sales figures!
For a time, everything seemed to smile for the Polish studio. It must be said that the adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s literary saga propelled CD Projekt to the top, which made it even more difficult to collect the fall when Cyberpunk 2077 was released. By the year 2022 -and surely the following-, the study take the opportunity to reveal amazing sales figures for its two flagship licenses!

- Cyberpunk 2077 in the footsteps of The Witcher 3?
Geralt’s adventures, a success
The history of CD Projekt has been marked by great ups and downs, but also great ups and downs. The three parts of The Wizard had the merit of putting the Polish studio in the spotlight, crystallizing great expectations for its future productions. Unfortunately for the teams, the last two years have tarnished the image of the company, forcing it to launch a large reconquest company around cyberpunk 2077but not only ! At this time of year it’s time to take stock for video game companies and CD Projekt has decided to do the math to regain some confidence and reassure players about the company’s good health.
To do this, nothing like a little communication around the sales figures of The Witcher. Very recently, the Polish studio announced that it had sold Over 65 million video games stamped The Witcher. However, whoever wins the award is undeniably the witcher 3 since it counts by itself over 40 million copies worldwide and on all platforms! A resounding success for Geralt’s third adventure -which will later be able to count on the PS5 and Xbox Series versions, still delayed-, but also for the saga in general that will grow, in the coming years, with a new work.
Cyberpunk 2077 in the footsteps of The Witcher 3?
For cyberpunk 2077, the pressure is therefore enormous in the face of figures of this magnitude! But despite a chaotic launch and a general following of the game that makes players nervous, CD Projekt’s latest creation is doing well. According to the studio, Cyberpunk 2077 has sold more than 18 million copies across all media since its release., in December 2020, that is, within a period of 16 months. Coincidentally, the title catches up with the scores of the witcher 3 and if the game gets better with updates, it could perhaps even outshine it, in the long run.
In terms of figures, these are not the only data that CD Projekt offers today. According to the financial director of the study, Piotr Nielubowicz, the economic aspect is not a sensitive issue, quite the contrary. Last year, the studio’s revenue totaled more than $207 million for a net profit of $48.79 million.. A very nice nest egg that has made it possible to inflate financial reserves: the latter increased by $65.3 million, despite a colossal $116.7 million allocated when the dividend was paid.
