CD Projekt RED has announced Cyberpunk 2077 has sold over 20 million copies.
“Over 20 million cyberpunks have been roaming the streets of Night City—partying with Jackie and getting to know Johnny, driving around with Panam and diving with Judy, hanging out with River and listening to Kerry’s songs,” CD Projekt said in the update. “Thank you and we hope to see you all in the Afterlife!”
Afterlife is the in-game nightclub that players can visit, but it mostly caters to loners and merc clientele. The new surge of attention and success for the game is mostly due to its newly released, instant hit anime adaptation: Cyberpunk Edgerunners.
It didn’t take long for Cyberpunk 2077 to sell quite a lot – on the contrary, the game sold 13 million copies soon after its 2020 launch. However, its troubled launch saw players asking for lots of refunds, to which Microsoft and Sony offered full refunds. At that time, Sony even pulled the game from the PlayStation Store.
The team could have dropped the game after some minor cleanup but they’ve been committed to making it better, as good as its crazy hyped pre-launch campaign portrayed it. The game’s next-gen ports were released, and our updated review found the game to be much better, improved in every way since its initial release.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now available for Windows PC (via Epic Games, GOG, and Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Google Stadia. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough review on the original game here.
