It has been a very good few days for CD Projekt Red. After overtaking The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in concurrent player count, the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account revealed the game has now sold 20 million copies. The recent Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime series on Netflix has done wonders for the game’s popularity, alongside a bunch of updates and bug fixes that gave some much needed polish to the world of Night City.
Just last week, Cyberpunk 2077 passed 122,000 peak concurrent players on SteamDB. The game has also been charting highly for days on the new Steam top-sellers and player charts. This follows the troubled launch the game had, with many players reporting missing features, bugs and glitches. Not many games have ever been so poorly performing on consoles they had to be pulled from digital storefronts, such as PlayStation did with Cyberpunk 2077. Despite the backlash, outrage and refunds, CD Projekt Red promised to support the game in the long-term, in a move which is seemingly starting to pay off for the developers.
The future is looking bright for those who are newly entering the neon world of Cyberpunk 2077. The spy-thriller Phantom Liberty expansion will release sometime in future, and take players to unexplored areas of Night City. The announcement for this DLC also came with an update to the game that added content from the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime, cross-platform progression and a clothing transmog system. Unfortunately for last-gen console players though, this update also marks the end of new content support for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.
