2015's THE WITCHER 3: WILD HUNT Reaches Over 100K Concurrent Players on Steam for the First Time

A rising tide lifts all boats, and it looks like The Witcher TV series has helped not only Netflix's statistics and the sales of Andrzej Sapkowski's novels — as CDP Red also has many, many reasons to be satisfied with the show's recent premiere.

According to Steam Stats, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has just reached new heights, with more than 100,000 concurrent players revisiting the acclaimed role-playing title in the past couple of days on Steam alone — which basically means that more people enjoy the prequel at the same time than ever before.

As reported by PC Gamer, the game's previous record on Steam was "only" about 90,200 active players, and it's worth noticing that the PC version of the game is also available on GOG and Origin.

Wild Hunt was originally released on May 13, 2015 — instantly becoming a hit with players and critics alike.

Given that many Netflix subscribers still haven't discovered The Witcher (although it took the 8-episode production only a couple of days to become the platform's second most-watched TV series of 2019, only behind the third season of Stranger Things), chances are that even more players will jump on the bandwagon and give the beloved trilogy a fair chance in the future. 

At the time of this writing, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the seventh most-played title on Steam.


The Witcher: Wild Hunt is a story-driven open world RPG set in a visually stunning fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher, you play as professional monster hunter Geralt of Rivia tasked with finding a child of prophecy in a vast open world rich with merchant cities, pirate islands, dangerous mountain passes, and forgotten caverns to explore.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (Steam, GOG, Origin) NOW!
