Wow, almost 30M sales for the game! Didn't expect that much, more like 20M



700k on Switch in only 2 months and a half is pretty great ! With the Netflix show i'm sure the sales might be close to 1 million on the system by now.

Switch really proves there is a place for third party games on a Nintendo console and even if they are released late and heavily downgraded.

Still surprised there isn't much third party exclusives for it. 

I think Nintendo might take that into consideration for next gen even more. We'll see if we still get support with the next gen tho.

Thanks for sharing.

It's interesting how much did the game sell on PS4 given that neither of the previous two games were on PS consoles. And it's also surprising that the game sold more in Asia than North America.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Thank you @Marth for the breakdown. I used your estimates in my breakdown article on the sales figures. Read the article here.

Digital only acounted for 29% in 2015 but 82% in 2019. The trend is clear.

Hmmmm, really?

By the way, it's surprising  for me that this game sells well in Asia.



I bought Witcher 2 and 3 (twice!) but I never imagined it was so successful. 😲
