There is a link in "come to light" embedded.

$67 million total sounds about right.

I'd love to see more AAA games get closer to $50M or less. Maybe we'd see the return of the AA Mid-tier game!

The middle market is dead, sadly. Now we have indies or massive budget AAA games.

Wasn't Dishonored and Shadows of Mordor mid-tier?

Well, I'll have more of those please.

The dollar is strong and the game is developed in Poland so when the development cost is translated to dollar it seems very low compared to if it was developed in the US.

i'm tryin to figure out why COD costs so much more and is a shit game(s) compared to this. perfect example of taking your time and doing it right. Kudos CD Projekt Red. Kudos.

activision have a bigger marketing machine (global advertising on a massive scale), they utilise big name talent (kevin spacey for example), cost of the discs (they do sell in excess of 20mil a year, that stuff adds up)

cost of the game is probably roughly the same, maybe a couple of mil difference but that could be anything due to developer costs (minimum wage in Poland considerably less than USA), time required to complete the game (short time, more overtime pay, increase costs)

also COD isn't a shit game... it's always well received, sells millions and has an online multiplayer that lasts a long long time.... if you don't like it fair enough, but it wouldn't still be going if it was shit

By shit i mean 3 different teams pretty much making the same game over and over. Can't say that about The Witcher...
