Developer CD Projekt Red has announced that its Witcher series has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide since the series debuted in 2007.

CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński credits a significant amount of those sales on the Xbox 360 release of the Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition. As a little thank you, the company is reducing the price of the game to $29.99. PC owners can download the game from GOG.com and Steam for 50-percent off.

Yesterday, Deep Silver revealed that Techland's Dead Island sold 5 million copies worldwide, too. Coincidence? Probably.
