The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is out next week, and CD Projekt RED has sent word that pre-orders for the saucy RPG have reached the 111,842 mark.

The firm said 40 percent of those pre-orders were for the digital premium edition, and the entire 9,999 available offering of the Polish Collector’s Edition have also been pre-ordered. The availability of the limited edition versions are also “dwindling” in other regions as well.

These figures will likely get higher as the game marches toward its May 17 international release day.

You check out some of the different offerings available for the title through here.

    @1 actually it is. The original game sold 1.7 units ww, which is very good for a indie title. I think what happens, is the huge numbers doled out by aaa-pubs have a tendency to make anything less than half a million to 10 million look shabby. Just my thought at any rate.

    Not to mention that most of the smaller studios don’t spend anywhere near the same amount bugetwise as some of the bigger studios. So those numbers can be smaller and profits can still be good(enough) to be happy and make more games.

    This has got to be the best looking indie title I’ve ever seen.

    @4 & 3

    yeah you’re right, EA will spend 100 million on marketing only, and maybe 50 for developing costs, they need to sell like 8 million copy to get good profits
