Witcher 2 sales are nearly 1 million

Takes PC RPG two months.

Fantastic PC role-playing game The Witcher 2 has sold nearly 1 million copies, according to a new report.

The number recorded by developer CD Projekt was 940,00 sales for the first half of 2011, according to the Warsaw Business Journal (via Gamasutra).

Of those sales, 200,000 were digitally distributed copies of The Witcher 2.

The Witcher 2 was released in May, which means those sales were amassed in under two months.

The Witcher 1 took a year to sell over 1 million sales.

The Witcher 2 is regarded as one of the finest role-playing games in recent years. An Xbox 360 version is planned for Q1 2012.

"Fans of RPGs should consider The Witcher 2 a must-buy," wrote Quintin Smith in Eurogamer's Witcher 2 review.

"There's simply no competitor that can touch it in terms of poise, characterisation and storytelling, or the way in which it treats you not as a player - someone to be pandered to and pleased - but as an adult, free to make your own mistakes and suffer a plot in which not everyone gets what they deserve."
