Marcin Iwiński from CDProjekt reveals some sales data of The Witcher 2.
Roughly 240,000 copies of The Witcher 2 were sold across all digital distribution platforms between its May 17 launch and October 30, CD Projekt revealed. Steam accounted for over 195,000 of these (around 81%), while Good Old Games rung up "approximately" 35,000 (15%).
All other other digital distributors combined--including GamersGate, Direct2Drive, Impulse, and Amazon--only managed "approximately" 10,000 sales (4%-ish) between them.
"The digital sales of The Witcher 2 have exceeded our expectations," CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński said in today's announcement. "We are even more pleased that our own platform GOG.com had such a great share in the Witcher's success."
So they've sold 1 million in total, a quarter of that through digital download services.
