The Witcher TV Series Causes Huge Game Sales Bump

A report from the NPD Group drills down into some sales numbers to analyze the impact of Netflix's The Witcher series across other media, including videogames (thanks VGC). Word is the television show caused sales of the games based on the fantasy novels to jump over 500%:
In the world of PC and console gaming, The Witcher was already widely popular. The most recent game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, was released in May 2015. In June 2019, the game’s publisher CD Projekt Red confirmed that the game sold over 20 million units worldwide. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was ported to the Nintendo Switch console in October 2019, just before the Netflix series premiered. These combined factors caused the game to have a strong surge in sales during Q4 2019. U.S. December physical sales for the game were 554 percent higher than December 2018, and still 63 percent higher even when excluding the Nintendo Switch platform.

I've always spent my time in the Soulsborne series (played the hell out of all 6 of them thus far) so didn't spend much time in The Witcher series yet. I must admit the resurgence with the show had me playing TW3 again too.
