Cyberpunk 2077 Enjoys Massive Debut with Eight Million Preorders and More than One Million Concurrent Players on Steam


Everyone already knew that Cyberpunk 2077 was going to be a smash hit, but CD PROJEKT RED may have to truck in more cases of champagne than expected. The company has shared some impressive sales figures on Twitter, revealing that the sci-fi RPG had already amassed eight million preorders by the time it was officially released. A breakdown between PC (59 percent/4.72 million copies) and console (41 percent/3.28 million copies) sales would also suggest that Cyberpunk 2077 is destined to go down in history as one of the most successful PC game launches ever.

Things are looking especially positive for CD PROJEKT’s bean counters on Steam, as Cyberpunk 2077 has raked in $50 million in revenue on Valve’s platform already. What’s also noteworthy is how the open-world RPG managed to achieve a new peak record for a single-player title, attracting an incredible 1,054,388 concurrent players on launch day. (As of this posting, 730,629 are making their way around Night City, which is leaps above Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s 416,732 players.)
