The release of The Witcher on Netflix has given new life to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt , originally released in 2015, to the point that the number of people simultaneously connected to the game on the Steam platform has never been higher. Student.
This is a very impressive feat, considering that this third installment of the game series was a resounding success with critics and fans of video games at the time of its release. The manufacturer had sold more than 4 million copies in 2 weeks (and 33 million copies in 3 years).
Now we learn, according to the data analysis site Steam Charts, that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt peaked in popularity on the Steam platform on December 29. During the peak period, more than 94,000 people were playing the game simultaneously – higher than its peak in May 2015, which hovered around 92,000 players simultaneously.
The game is now among the 10 most popular games on Steam; indeed, he ranked eighth at the time of this writing. Other games in the Witcher series have also seen a resurgence in popularity since the broadcast of the series. The Witcher: Enhanced Edition, for example, managed to carve out a place in the list of the 100 most popular games.
Both games are also offered at more than 70% off on Steam until January 2, something that would certainly not hurt their sales and current popularity.
