More people appear to be playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt than were playing it when it first released, which was back in 2015. According to Steam Charts, its peak current player count in May 2015 was an impressive 92,268.
That number has continued to climb since the weekend, and today the nearly five-year-old game set another new mark, surpassing 100,000 current players for the first time ever.
This sudden resurgence in popularity is almost certainly down to the success of The Witcher on Netflix, and curiosity about the game has been easy to indulge thanks to Christmas sale prices on The Witcher 3 on Steam.
Those numbers will inevitably decline; even if all the newcomers play it from start to finish, an aged single-player RPG isn’t going to maintain a player base the way a free-to-play game in active development will, but it’s still an impressive feat never-the-less.
