CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has broken its own record of concurrent players it held since 2015. The player resurgence is thanks in no small part to an ongoing sale of the game, coupled with the holiday break and the popular Netflix series.
Well, it's more happy news this time around as the game has broken its record of all-time peak players during the last 24 hours. According to , CD Projekt Red's title has had 94,601 people playing it during the last day.
This is more players than the game had when it was first released back in May 2015. The player count form 2015 checks in at 92,268 players total.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is over at Steam - at the time of writing. The 70 per cent off deal will come to an end on 2 January 2020. Titles on offer include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, its GOTY edition as well as The Witcher Trilogy Bundle which is 80 per cent off.
The Steam sale, coupled with the Christmas holiday break and the Netflix series' popularity has no doubt created this series of fortunate events we're experiencing right now.
We are sure that the players who have already finished the game once or twice - and we're being super conservative here - are back for more, along with the new faces that missed out on the amazing fantasy game the first time around.
