The Witcher Creators Break the Bank at the Golden Joystick Awards

The studio CD PROJEKT RED, the creator of the award-winning Witcher game owned by the CD Projekt Group, has won record-breaking five awards at this year’s international ceremony of the Golden Joystick Awards in London.

The game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the studio CD PROJEKT RED have won five awards:

  • Ultimate Game of the Year
  • Best Storytelling
  • Best Visual Design
  • Best Gaming Moment
  • Studio of the Year (for CD PROJEKT RED)

The Golden Joystick Awards, also known as the Oscars or the videogame industry, are among the most coveted prizes in the videogame world. They are also among the oldest: they have been awarded continuously since 1983 and the winners are voted for by the general public. More than 9 million games have voted this year.

Five Golden Joystick Awards in one year have been won in the 33-year history of the ceremony only once, by Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in 2005.
The CD PROJEKT RED production also won the Most Wanted award in 2013 and 2014, which makes The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt the most awarded game in the history of the Golden Joystick Awards.
