The popularity of the show, The Witcher stimulated curiosity in The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. The title was initially released by the publisher nearly about five years ago.
However, The Witcher fans seem to be starving for more of the content. With the new episodes of the series being some time away, the fans are looking to find other ways to spend their time with Geralt, Siri and Yennefer. This interest has turned the Poland-based publisher, CD Projekt into the second-biggest video gaming company of Europe.
