A new report from CD Projekt RED tells us that Cyberpunk 2077 has sold over 13 million copies within the first 10 days. This enabled the action-packed role-playing game to celebrate one of the most successful launches of all, despite the massive criticism of the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
CD Projekt RED published a report on Cyberpunk 2077 on the company’s website. In it, the board announces that the open-world blockbuster was sold a sensational 13 million times within the first 10 days.
In determining this number, all platforms on which the game is available were taken into account. Also, the sales number refers to both digital and physical sales. The numerous refunds from dissatisfied console players were deducted here.
With this report, the Polish development studio wants to signal to investors that they have made a record-breaking start with the game. In the end, they achieved this despite the great uproar over the technically defective state of the last-gen versions.
However, many requests for reimbursement have not yet been processed. Many repayments are also handled by independent retailers or by Sony itself. Regardless of this, the numbers are unbelievable and make Cyberpunk 2077 one of the biggest launches of all time for a new brand. Perhaps this is the most successful launch that an action RPG has ever had.
Last Friday we learned that Cyberpunk 2077 had been removed from the PlayStation store. CD Projekt RED announced that the game should return to the store as soon as possible. To achieve this goal, the developers have released a new update, which eliminates numerous bugs. Two more patches have already been announced for January and February, which will further improve the gaming experience.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available for PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC. In the course of the coming year, the title will also appear for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
