Recently we discussed that there is a huge player wave coming back to the Witcher games. The main reason behind this massive increase in player base out of nowhere was The Witcher Netflix Series. Furthermore, the Game showed impressive player base on all three games, and the latest Witcher 3 was on par with Red Dead Redemption 2. Well, currently its on 7th number, beating Red Dead Redemption with a fair margin. You can see the steam chart here.
Today, there is even exciting news. Witcher 3 has broken its previous record of 9200 players. The game has hit 10,0000 players for the first time since its release in 2015. Furthermore, Witcher 3 is currently averaging on number 8 at the Steam’s most played game of the day. However, it reached 6th number, just behind Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
Apart from this people do not realize that all games above Witcher 3 are multiplayer, meaning easily more players. Above Witcher 3 there are games like CS-GO, Dota 2, PUBG, GTA V, Rainbow Six Siege, thus competition is a bit unfair. Coming back to Subject, Its still incredible to see Witcher 3 showing its glory, and completing with multiplayer games, after so many years.
The rise in the player base was no doubt getting supported by Netflix series. However, I predicted that this sort of player base won’t last till long due to Witcher’s Season 2 being planned to release in 2021, but I was wrong. Witcher 3 player base did not drop from that day, instead it has kept increasing. Additionally, there was a recent Sale on Steam and GOG, which made the game price absolutely cheap. Huge chunks of players bought the game at that time, and decided to play it, well it is not a boring game? Hence, people kept playing due to the inspiration from Netflix series. In my opinion, Witcher 3 was always ahead of its time, but never reached its true potential, now we can see that game is showing its class when everyone hears about it.
