- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt recently broke its all-time high record of concurrent players on Steam.

- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt originally released on May 19, 2015.
Recently, we reported that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had broken its launch day records on Steam and had over 94,000 concurrent players on that platform alone. Those numbers just keep going up, as according to Steam Stats, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt reached over 100,000 concurrent players on Steam today.
It seems likely the success of the new Netflix show has had an impact on the game's playerbase, with more newcomers checking out other works in the franchise and trying the game for the first time, or giving it another go. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt originally released back in May 2015 to critical acclaim and commercial success. Seeing it break records of concurrent players over four years later is noteworthy. It's also worth noting that this is only on Steam and does not count players on GOG or on consoles.
With this resurgence in mind, it'll be interesting to see what comes of the new deal between CD Projekt Red (the developers of the game) and Andrzej Sapkowski, the author of the series. According to a new statement, the two parties reached a new deal where both are happy and CD Projekt Red has gained "additional rights."
