After several delays, the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 has finally been released, not even a day old yet. The developer, CD Project Red, has already shared some early sales figures for the RPG, including their preorder sales.
The studio revealed on its official Twitter account that Cyberpunk 2077 had more than eight million preorders before its release. Even when factoring in cancellations, that is a staggering amount. Most of these sales were for the PC version of the game, at 59%. The RPG has done amazing digitally, with 74% of preorders being sold on Steam, GOG, and the Microsoft and PlayStation stores.
It’s not surprising that the digital/physical split is so drastic, especially considering the traction the game has gained on Steam. According to Steam DB, there were 1,003,264 concurrent Cyberpunk 2077 players when the game launched last night, with a peak of 1,054,388 players over the last 24 hours. This dwarfs other PC titles like Grand Theft Auto V, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Fallout 4.
