The number of players for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Steam have risen after the launch of the Netflix series last Friday.

This is according to figures from Steam Charts. Although there are normally around 15,000 people playing The Witcher 3 at the same time on Steam, this increased further during the weekend and last Monday the counter stood at more than 49,000 simultaneous players.

This is undoubtedly related to the launch of The Witcher on Netflix, a series based on the books of the same name. The games take place after these books.
