"The Witcher" and "The Witcher 2" sell four million copies worldwide.

The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassination of Kings sold more than 4 million copies worldwide, developer CD Projekt Red announced this morning.

"I'm still amazed with the result we have achieved with The Witcher franchise," said head of CD Projekt RED studio Adam Badowski. "Many gamers on many platforms have been drawn to the vivid and complex world we have created. In the gaming world summer means a lot of great, hot deals. So if you still don't own the game look out for both retail and digital special offers. 'The Witcher' and 'The Witcher 2' are great, robust RPGs, that every true gamer should own."

The franchise follows the plot of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's medieval fantasy novels about a professional monster slayer struggling to regain his memories and solve a conspiracy that could bring down a kingdom.

The Witcher was released for PC and Mac in 2007. The Witcher 2 hit PC in May 2011 and Xbox 360 this past April. The sequel is expected to come to Mac internationally and Xbox 360 in Japan this fall.
