With the launch of the TV series of The Witcher 3 on Netflix, the video game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has also achieved a return of visibility, returning to being among the most played on PC and console.
It seems that the Netflix series on The Witcher has also done well for the video game The Witcher 3, given the numbers, it is recently recording on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One, four and a half years from its original release date.
Based on data collected on Steam, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt recorded 48,000 users simultaneously connected on the game in question, a level of use that has not been seen since the summer of 2016, when CD Projekt RED launched the latest DLC, Blood, and Wine.
However, the issue also affects consoles as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has returned to being heavily played also on PS4 and Xbox One, leading to a total of about one million active players on the CD Projekt RED title in December on all platforms, even if at the moment it is only estimated.
It is quite logical to think that this flashback is largely due to the launch of the Netflix series on The Witcher, made available in streaming video from December 20, collecting various consents, in particular among the public.
Although not closely related to video games, given that the television adaptation is focused on the books of Andrzej Sapkowski, it is clear that the new visibility given by the TV series on Netflix has reflections in this flashback for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
