Witcher 2 developer estimates game was pirated at least 4.5 million times

For every person who purchased a copy of The Witcher 2 legally, at least 4-5 downloaded a copy illegally, said developer CD Projekt. CEO Marcin Iwinski checked piracy websites after the game’s release, and while he agreed that it would have been impossible to get an exact number, he was still able to get a good idea by following the numbers that were available. “There are no stats available, but lets make a quick calculation. I was checking regularly the number of concurrent downloads on torrent aggregating sites, and for the first 6-8 weeks there was around 20-30k ppl downloading it at the same time,” he said.
