The Witcher 3 PC Sales Dominated by GoG as Opposed to Steam

The Witcher 3 Review 01

The Witcher 3 has been a massive success across all platforms, and the case remains true for PC as well. The game’s immense world, fantastic gameplay, and captivating story has resulted in very high review scores, despite the general issues of bugs and performance drops.

Approximately 1.3 million copies of the game have been sold on the PC, but a huge surprise is that Valve’s superb game client Steam isn’t leading the sales chart for the PC. In fact, it is Good Old Games that is the frontrunner.

The CD Projekt Red owned service at the moment has around 693,000 PC users playing the game using the GOG Galaxy, the distribution firm’s software client. Normally, there is hardly any gaming service that can even challenge Steam, let alone surpass it.

A big reason for this could possibly due to the service’s constant reluctance to use the much controversial DRM, a move that has impressed PC gamers and is tied with CD Projekt Red’s own refusal to use the copyright protection method.

The Witcher 3 despite not having any multiplayer is still expected to continue sales, as CD Projekt Red plans to release a good amount of DLC content for the title. The game is also a very heavy contender for the Game of the Year award, despite half of the year still remaining.
