Already this series has sold over 5 million copies that expands on PC for the first title, and PC and Xbox 360 for Witcher 2.
To be sure this is the final installment of the Witcher games, Adam Badowski, head of the studio stated in a press release:
"People may ask if this is really going to be the last Witcher game. Yes, it is. Why? Because we believe that we should end the series on a high note. Technology has progressed to where we can finally tell the story the way we want, with the visuals we want, in the world we imagined. This will be the ultimate fantasy RPG experience, and while we're hardly out of stories to tell, we believe it's time for us to look to new worlds and new horizons to keep pushing the boundaries of what we can create."
I find this a breath of fresh air, as it seems to be an ongoing trend for games to continue on forever, just as long as it is making money for the company.
Another announcement followed on February 6th, that the price of Witcher 2 would be dropped for Xbox 360 to celebrate the upcoming third title alongside of PC sales for the first two installments.
Both The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition will be on sale for 50% off on both GOG and Steam until February 8th.

Do you like it when a series comes to conclusion (whether it be a video game or book), or do you like them to continue on for an extended period of time?
