Estimated 4.5 Million Copies Of Witcher 2 Pirated

Fighting piracy is an ongoing battle for companies like Poland's CD Projekt, developer of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which believes that its latest game has been hit hard.

In an interview with PC Gamer, CD Projekt CEO and co-founder Marcin Iwinski estimated that more than 4.5 million copies of the game have probably been pirated, but he still counts the company lucky in a way.

"I would say that's rather on the optimistic side of things; as of today we have sold over one million legal copies, so having only 4.5 to 5 illegal copies for each legal one would be not a bad ratio. The reality is probably way worse."

The Xbox 360 edition of The Witcher 2 is being published by Warner Bros., and is scheduled to hit shelves early next year.
