The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt - Most Expensive Game Ever? (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

The witcher 3 wild hunt


CD Projekt, Polish developer, revealed in a presentation by CEO Adam Kicinski that the critically acclaimed RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt cost a whopping $81 million (£52 million). Most gamers know that the Witcher 3 is not only one of the best RPGs  in recent gaming history, but it also packs more features and way more hours of content, than most games available today combined. Lastly it is also one of the best looking games on any platform to date. The Witcher 3 has had its fair share of social issues:  a controversial game, with accusations of sexism and racism claimed against CD Projekt's latest title.

Being a killer game of 2015, The Witcher 3 and its' $81 million budget are understandable, considering how elite of a title it has become. Although the game’s cost still pales in comparison to Rockstar’s best-selling open world adventure GTA V, which cost a whopping $265 million to develop and market. Other big cost titles include, Activision’s multiplayer shooter Destiny were more expensive still, consuming mammoth $500 million.

But still, The Witcher 3’s budget is impressive for an independent studio like CD Projekt, which clearly does not have the resources of a large video game company like Electronic Arts (sigh). 

CD Projekt also revealed, that more than 1500  people worldwide worked on The Witcher 3. Thus proving what an ambitious game this was, probably on the scale of AAA video games like Assassin’s Creed Unity, which was developed by 10 studios and thousands of people worldwide.
