To say that The Witcher series on Netflix had an effect on the game is an understatement as people have been checking it out afterward. The Witcher 3, which in itself is a great game and has done well over the past few years, is currently reaping the benefits of the new series. As of this week, it is currently the third best selling game on Steam in the States. With only Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Halo: The Master Chief Collection ahead of it.
What's more, the game is seeing a resurgence in player activity, beyond just new purchases. According to Steam Charts, as of the time we're writing this article, the game has seen over 85k concurrent players within the past 30 days. The Witcher 3 hasn't seen numbers like this in over three years. That's the kind of activity that will make other game publishers look over their library and wonder what IP of theirs can be made into a Netflix show. We'll see how long the trend continues since, like moist Netflix shows, you can binge and bail in a short period of time.
