The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has received unprecedented amounts of praise since it’s release on May 19th, 2015. CD Projekt RED, the Polish studio responsible for The Witcher franchise, wants to say “thanks” for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt selling “…6 million copies of the game in six weeks since launch.”
It isn’t often that humility is shown in the face of success, however, a letter from the studio was sent out to expresses the team’s gratitude for all the support the game has received.
This is what Adam Badowski,Head of Studio at CD Projekt RED had to say:
For us, all your high praise, all the positive reviews, are also an obligation — we’ve made a really good game but there’s still a long road ahead of us. Everyone here in CD PROJEKT RED is really attached to their work and how you, the gamers, perceive it.
He goes on to write:
Yes, six million copies is a great achievement for a company making RPGs, but this business is not only about that. If our games are a gallery of sound, picture and text – you are the visitors of this gallery. To an artist, there’s no sweeter sight than people enjoying their work. That’s why, in the name of all the devs in the studio, I’d like to say thanks to each and every one of you.
It’s very uncommon for such a large developer to reach out to their community on a personal level. What do you think about this letter? Should other developers become for involved with their audience?
