The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has exceeded 1 million pre-orders, Linux support


+CdpredStudio, creators of the critically acclaimed #Witcher series of games, announced that worldwide pre-orders for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has #exceeded 1 #million!

We’ve crossed the 1 million pre-order milestone and it’s all thanks to you guys! We would like to thank all the gamers for their trust and support,” said Marcin Iwiński, co-founder, CD PROJEKT RED. “This is the last stretch and we’re pushing hard — over the last two weeks, we’ve increased performance on all platforms and started working full speed on the expansions, Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine,” concludes Iwiński.

Garnering over 200 prestigious awards before launch, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is CD PROJEKT RED’s most ambitious endeavour up to date. Set within a truly open world, the game puts you in the role of a wandering bounty hunter and monster slayer, Geralt of Rivia. In The Witcher, you take on the greatest contract of your life — tracking down the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world. The game will receive 16 entirely free DLCs that will be available for every gamer owning a copy of Wild Hunt. The DLCs will be released in pairs on a weekly basis, starting from May 20th.

Keep in mind, most AAA game titles release on Windows PC first, then port to Linux. And up to now we have seen information ‘confirming’ a port and other posts exclaiming ‘uncomfirmed.

So we have included our latest findings from on the topic:

Linux support coming to GOG in the future, it’s good to gather some feedback and show CD Projekt Red (who are GOG’s sister company) whether their users want their games to be released for Linux. This is primarily about future titles (such as Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077) since that’s what CD Projekt Red are working now at present. But if you want to mention interest in the past titles (Witcher 1 and 2), feel free to comment as well, but don’t expect that to be an an easily accepted request, since working on past titles is a less probable event naturally.

The game is scheduled to launch May 19th, 2015, on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Windows PC, and PlayStation®4. Visit The Witcher official website for more information about the game and pre-order availability worldwide.
