Netflix's The Witcher has brought Geralt and pals to the mainstream, with hardcore fans of this franchise hoping that these characters become household names in the future. While we wait and see if Geralt of Rivia becomes a legend in pop culture, gamers know all too well about this franchise thanks to games like The Witcher 3. However, it looks like more people are realizing how good the games are since sales for the third game have increased by a lot.

And we mean A LOT!

NPD reports that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has had a 500% increase in sales ever since the show came out, which is insane. The game was already a bestseller thanks to good reviews and marketing but knowing that fans of Netflix's show are checking it out too is great news. This ensures that everyone will know how great this game is.

Even with a couple of bugs here and there, The Witcher 3 is still a pretty remarkable game, giving fans one of the most absorbing fantasy worlds they've played in a long time. Nintendo loyalists also have no reason to not check this out since an ultimate edition of the game with all the DLC is now available on the Nintendo Switch, albeit with downscaled graphics.

With CD Projekt Red renewing the license to work on more games, we can expect more of The Witcher when it comes to this entertainment medium. Considering how good The Witcher 3 is, you can't blame fans for having huge expectations when The Witcher 4 eventually comes out. In the meantime, Netflix's The Witcher can be streamed right now.
