The Witcher 3 Breaks $50M Triggering Developer Payday

CD Projekt RED Tweets that that sales of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt have now passed USD$50M in sales on Steam (thanks PCGamesN). This threshold triggers a new royalty structure, and they are now entitled to 80% of sales of the RPG going forward:
The accumulated revenue from sales of The Witcher 3 on @Steam platform for the period of time between October 1st 2018 and today has exceeded 50M USD. As a result, we are now getting 80% on any subsequent sales of TW3 on Steam.

Thank you all for your support!

50M USD in revenue from october 2018 (when the game was already more than 3 years old) is very strong. GOG revenue comes in addition, obviously.

While The Witcher 3 clearly still is one of the best games in the genre and therefore has long legs I'm still going to assume that a lot of this comes down to the fantastic success of the netflix-series.

Anyway, I'm glad CDPR won't have finanial woes going into the release of Cyperpunk 2077.
