The Witcher Season 2 released on Netflix last month and like before, it's proven to be a hit with series fans and Netflix viewers in general. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it's led to another resurgence of gamers playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt once again.
According to PC Gamer, The Witcher Season 2's release on Netflix has led to a total of 71,000 concurrent players. It's an impressive number, though it doesn’t reach the heights of The Witcher 3’s launch at 92,000 concurrent players.
The Witcher's Second Season Caused Another Surge in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Players
Nor does it reach the heights of The Witcher Season 1, which led to 100,000 concurrent players picking up The Witcher 3. Whether they were veterans who wanted to play as Geralt again, or newbies who'd never played the game before, it got people interested.
CD Projekt Red plans to release a next-gen upgrade of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt this year, with new Netflix-inspired DLC, improved visuals, and better performance. All of this will be free to those that purchased the PS4 and Xbox One versions, via free new-gen upgrades.
Interested gamers can pick up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch, choosing either the base game or a definitive "Game of the Year" edition with all previously released DLC.
