This was coupled with interesting settings like Flotsam and Vergen for an RPG worth playing. CD Projekt Red also introduced a new combat system with a more action-oriented approach.

The developer took this combat system and improved it further for The Witcher 3. In other areas, The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings delivered a compelling narrative that made it an immediate success.

The game saw a highly positive critical reception and sold over 1.7 million copies in just over a year. Following the massive popularity of The Witcher 3, fans also revisited the older games, leading to even better sales for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
