The Witcher 3 has made $50 million since October 2018

Since October 2018, the sales of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Steam has exceeded $50 million.

As revealed on Twitter (below), the new milestone means that CD Projekt Red will get 80 per cent of the revenue for all future sales of the game on Valve's storefront.

In December 2018, Valve changed the terms for its distribution service. It agreed to reduce its revenue share after games exceed $10 million - 25 per cent for the American firm and 75 per cent for the studio. For a game that earns $50 million, Valve will get 20 per cent of future sales while the developers get 80 per cent.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that physical sales of the fantasy RPG were up 554 per cent. After the release of the Netflix show, The Witcher saw its highest number of concurrent Steam players. The Witcher 3 was also the best-selling game on Steam at the start of 2020.

The Witcher series was launched on Netflix in December 2019, a second season was confirmed before the first episode aired.
