Although Cyberpunk 2077’s launch was less than perfect for CD Projekt Red, but the game still managed to sell incredibly well. Most of the units sold were digital and, according to the analytics company SuperData, the game had the biggest digital game launch of all time. That’s even factoring in refund copies.
SupeData estimates that Cyberpunk 2077 sold 10.2 million digital units during it’s launch period, making it the biggest launch based on both digital and overall units sold. However, this number doesn’t account for the refund copies, but SuperData says the difference wouldn’t be significant enough to overturn the record.
The report also noted that about 80% of the digital sales were on PC, which wasn’t affected nearly as much by problems within the game. So these numbers would appear to be correct.
Cyberpunk 2077 worst issues were predominantly on the Xbox One and PS4, with crashing and performance issues led CD Projekt to not only apologize, but even offer refunds from their own pockets. The game is still unavailable to purchase digitally from the PlayStation Store, but you can still find retail copies.
CD Projekt Red has a long way to go to bring Cyberpunk 2077 to a high point for console players, as well as just fixing general issues with the game. The first major update arrived last week, bringing a few new bugs along with it. PS5 and Xbox Series X versions won’t be available until late this year (at the earliest). Multiplayer won’t arrive until at least 2022. It’s unclear on if the game will still have any interest by that point.
