In part to the success of Cyberpunk 2077 back in December, CD Projekt Red had a massive year in 2020 as far as profit and revenue is concerned. Ahead of the company’s finalized earnings on April 22nd, CD Projekt Red revealed just how much money they made during the 2020 financial year.
CD Projekt Red brought in 2.139 billion PLN ($562.5 million) for revenue and 1.154 billion PLN ($303.5 million) in net profit. The company stated these numbers have not been formally audited so the actual numbers maybe be different when they are published in the full earnings.
Although Cyberpunk 2077 had a rough start, it still had a large impact on CD Projekt Red’s bottom line. In comparison, CDPR made 521 million PLN for the entire year in 2019, with net profit reaching 175 million PLN.
This shouldn’t be such a surprise, as Cyberpunk 2077 sold 13 million copies right from the start, becoming one of the most successful RPG launches in history. This is even with refunds and after the game removed from the PlayStation Store–which it still hasn’t returned too yet.
In response to the issues, CD Projekt Red has pledged to continue to update and improve the game over time so it can continue to sell well. Patch 1.2 contained 500 fixes and came out in March, followed by the recent 1.21 update.
