First things first. CD Projekt Red has managed to rake up its sales, thanks to "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" game. This only goes to show what a massive hit the action role-playing game is. Meanwhile, the final DLC "Blood and Wine" has been greenlit for release and thanks for the development diary video, fans will have a look-see at Geralt's upcoming adventure.
According to Twinfinite, the Poland-based video game developer acquired 87 million zloty (US$22 million) as "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" covered 73 percent of its sales. As for the remaining 22 percent, it all came from GOG, the company's online distribution service.
With the figures pointing north, it is only right if the net profit of CD Projekt Red exceeds by 12.5 percent (which is around $8.5 million). Adam Kicinski, the company's president, said that "Wild Hunt" was the main reason behind the huge sales spurt.
Kicinski claimed that role-playing games such as "The Witcher 3" always sell for years. And how do they plan to make the sales consistent while sustaining the interest of gamers? Well, simply by releasing a new downloadable content expansion "Blood and Wine" for "The Witcher 3" installment.
The aforementioned DLC is set for a May 31 release, but thanks to a development diary video, fans and gamers alike will be able to know what Geralt is up to, as reported by Tom's Hardware.
In the initial "Blood and Wine" trailer, Geralt finds himself captivated by the wonders of Toussaint, a place full of wine production (the DLC title says it all). As players travel throughout the place, they will see an array of grapevines that are believed to be owned by a group of wine connoisseur family.
Soon enough, these wine fanatics discover that their cellars are infested with monsters. Luckily for them, Geralt happens to be at the right place at the right time. "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" protagonist will battle against a terrifying beast, but he will soon find out a mysterious, dark secret that has since been lurking beneath the wines and the riches.
