The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the biggest open-world game in the series, and it has already proven its worth to audiences with massive online sales.
Now, the next step is to see how it holds up against other AAA franchises in a world where big budgets and big games are no longer the exclusive province of AAA studios.
