I recently wrote about Witcher 3 massive increase in player base, which seemed to be to just increasing. The game went on par, and above Red Dead Redemption 2 in terms of players on Steam. Furthermore, it even challenged the top guns like Dota 2, CS:GO, Rocket League, Rainbow Six Siege, and GTA 5, for the top 5 rankings. Apart from Witcher 3, the previous Witcher games were also showing a significant increase in their player base. We all know that this is mostly coming from The Witcher Series, which has been a massive hit.
Apart from games, books are now getting huge demand in the United States especially. In an announcement on Kotaku UK, Orbit Books said that they are reprinting more than half-million copies of Andrzej Sapkowski’s Novels to meet new demand in the US.
“With the Witcher, Andrzej Sapkowski created one of the most memorable characters in modern fantasy. The series inspired one of the most popular videogames of recent years and we’re thrilled that the Netflix adaptation, which launched in December, is introducing the Witcher to a whole new audience,” Orbit said.
“The demand for all eight books in the series increased steadily last year in anticipation of the Netflix launch. Since its release, sales have been phenomenal in all formats—print, ebook and audio—and Orbit’s US division is currently reprinting over 500,000 copies to meet the exceptional demand.”
Books are original background behind all these games and series. If you want an insight into Witcher, you should read these interesting books. Additionally, we are now seeing huge demand of Witcher Games, Books, and especially Series, it’ll be real fun when the new season starts, and there is even more percentage increase in these things. I could see it going to ultimately top if they carry on like they are progressing already.
