Cyberpunk 2077 has now sold more than 20 million albums sold.

The Cyberennaisance is still currently underway.

CD Projekt’s cyber renaissance persists today, with the studio declaring that Cyberpunk 2077 has now sold over 20 million copies.

By the way, Afterlife is a nightclub in Cyberpunk 2077 that caters primarily to hired guns and muscle.

Selling 20 million copies is a rare achievement that positions the game in some very impressive company, including CD Projekt’s previous game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt(opens in new tab), though it’s still a considerable distance from true behemoths like Minecraft (238 million), Grand Theft Auto 5 (170 million), or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (opens in new tab) (75 million). Even more impressive is the pace that it accomplished the feat. It took six years for Stardew Valley(which opens in a new tab) to sell 20 million copies, four years for The Witcher 3, and much less than two years for Cyberpunk 2077.

The official investor relations account of CD Projekt, which is normally a strict source of financial and regulatory information for investors, analysts, and other business types, also was having some fun with the big number.

More than half of Cyberpunk’s sales were rung up within a few weeks(opens in new tab) of its December 2020 release, thanks to a hugely successful pre-launch campaign that managed to draw roughly eight million preorders—enough to make the game a bonafide hit before it was even released. Even so, more than six million sales in the very next year and a half are nothing to sneeze at, especially given the game’s well-publicized problems and complete absence from the PlayStation Store(opens in new tab) for much of that time.

Rather than admitting defeat and starting to move on, CD Projekt has continued to work on Cyberpunk 2077(opens in a new tab), delaying plans for new content and expansions in order to focus on fixes and performance improvements. Those efforts are undoubtedly paying off, but the game also received a significant uplift from Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, a Netflix anime that debuted earlier this month. It convinced Wes to give the game another try (opens in a new tab) (or at least think it), and numerous others felt the same way. The average and peak concurrent player counts on Steam had also risen significantly’; Also it s new among the 10 leading games on Steam in terms of a player tally and is an amazing comeback by any benchmark.
