The Witcher 2 Sales Approach One Million

The Warsaw Business Journal reports that CD Projekt RED has sold almost one million copies of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (thanks Gamasutra). Also, VG247 has word a playable demo will be coming to the Gaikai cloud service. The Warsaw Business Journal report has the company's financial results, and word that they will become exclusive distributor of Activision Blizzard games in Poland. Here's a bit:

CD Projekt Red (previously Optimus), producer of the record-breaking “The Witcher” and “The Witcher 2” computer games, reported a net profit of zł.20.4 million and generated zł.80.3 million in revenue for the first half of 2011, Parkiet reported.

Of the group’s many areas of operation, the gaming division provided the largest contribution to the result. In particular, The Witcher 2 game, released on May 17, proved a great success, with sales of 940,000 copies, out of which 200,000 were downloaded online by gamers.

The result was what the company had expected, Piotr Nielubowicz, CD Projekt Red board member, told Parkiet.

Im a little confused why this game has taken so long to reach the one million mark. such a great game too.
Its PC only and not some ZOMG U RUENED MY KILLS STREAK!

It is also proof that a game this big can not cause the developer to shut its doors if it does not break 1m in sales opening weekend.
