The figure of the day: $ 4,000 was paid to Andrzej Sapkowski for the rights to play in the universe of the Witcher. Polish game journalist Marcin Kosman, who is currently working in the CD Projekt studio, said that writer Andrzej Sapkowski in the past sold the rights to create games in the universe of the Witcher's Metropolis Software studio for only $ 4,000. He also suggested that the developers name the game not "The Witcher", but "The Sorcerer", but they refused. The game was in development, but it was never released, and subsequently CD Projekt acquired Metropolis Software.
CD Projekt subsequently had to renew the license, but the amount of this transaction remains unknown. However, it is unlikely that it is a question of big money, given the recent information about Sapkowski's dissatisfaction, who lamented about the rejection of interest payments from the sales of The Witcher games.
