Therefore, surely the game is going to be a financial success and the devs know that. That is why the miniseries is probably the plot to make its way forward towards the second part of the game. Maybe the CD Project Red have planned it already and that is why they are creating hype for the next expansion of the title even before the launch of the first title itself.
It also shows that the developers are actually very-very confident about the game, that is why they are planning so forward in the future. The storyline of the miniseries or the timeline or any teaser or trailer, nothing has been officially released yet, but fans have already started the countdown for sure.
You should also know that Netflix has confirmed that there is going to be an animated film on Witcher named Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf (to be released by the end of 2020); so it seems CD Project Red is having some good terms with the Netflix, so we can expect some Netflix and Gameworld duo in future to go through the complete storyline.

In simple the idea of being a popular game has just changed by the CD Project Red, now they can bring their players as an audience into other platforms by delivering the same content, and yes this is awesome in terms of hardcore entertainment.
