The co-founder of CD Projekt Red, the studio behind The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has thanked fans for their support as the game sold 4 million copies in its first two weeks.

The third instalment in the fantasy action-adventure series, which launched on May 19th, was also critically acclaimed worldwide by critics, praising it for its story, graphics and gameplay. Some even called it “one of the best role-playing games ever crafted”.

“Since day one, you have given us tons of positive feedback and support — the sheer volume of emails we’ve gotten since launch simply congratulating us for our efforts is both epic and heartwarming, and I wish every developer comes to have such a fantastic community,” said Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, in an open letter.

“In terms of media reception, we’re really humbled by the scores the game has received all around the world. With an average of 90+ on every platform, Wild Hunt is our dream coming true.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the four million gamers worldwide who bought The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the first two weeks from launch. Four million RPG fans spending their hard-earned money on our game is a sign that we did something right, and you can be sure that we’ll harness all that positive energy and make the upcoming expansions worthy of the grand adventure that you’re telling us Wild Hunt already is.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
