We played village before it was fashionable.

I am not lying to you that the whole world has recently gone crazy about the Witcher. While some time ago Andrzej Sapkowski's books were read by only a few, and the Witcher saga was played only by avid players, thanks to Netflix production series the sale of all of the creativity centered around Geralt of Rivia literally exploded. This is confirmed by the report prepared by the NPD Group.

Among the many interesting data, the increase in sales of The Witcher 3 on various digital distribution platforms is striking. The latest game in the well-liked series in December 2019 sold as much as 554% better than in the same month in 2018 – data for both personal computers and various consoles. The production of CD Projekt RED was reached even by people who had never played games in the world before. Many simply wanted to explore even more the world known from the serial installment of the adventures of the butcher from Blaviken, which left some unsatisfied in the plot. Suffice it to say that at the beginning of January, even over 100,000 people played at The Witcher 3 alone.

Sales of Andrzej Sapkowski's books around the world are going so well that it was necessary to reprint … 500,000 copies globally. This phenomenon is basically unprecedented. The Witcher is not only read by Poles – the books of the Polish writer have become permanent bestsellers Amazon, Google Books and many other platforms and stores. Sapkowski's work shook the US publishing market so much that this week of the series premiere recorded a 562% increase in sales of paper books compared to the same period in the previous year.
