Cyberpunk 2077 Had Biggest Digital Game Launch Ever – Report

0

Cyberpunk 2077’s launch may have been a mess for CD Projekt Red, but the game still managed to sell an incredible number of units–and many of those were digital. According to the analytics company SuperData, the game had the biggest digital game launch of all time, even when factoring in refunded copies.

SuperData estimates that Cyberpunk 2077 sold 10.2 million digital units during its launch period, making it the biggest game launch based on both digital revenue as well as overall units sold. This number does not take into account the refunded copies, but SuperData said the difference would not be significant enough to overturn the record. SuperData has occasionally had its data disputed, as was the case with Epic Games in early 2020.

The report said about 80% of the digital sales were on PC, which could account for why the refund totals didn’t make much of an impact on this record. The game’s worst problems were predominantly on PS4 and Xbox One, where crashing issues and poor performance led CD Projekt to apologize and even offer its own refunds in case retailers would not accept them.

CD Projekt Red has a long road ahead in terms of adding content to Cyberpunk 2077 as well as fixing its issues. The game’s first major patch just arrived last week and appears to have introduced some new bugs. The next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions also aren’t going to be ready until late this year at the earliest, and it looks like the multiplayer component won’t arrive until at least 2022. It remains to be seen if interest for the franchise will still be there by that point, seeing as the launch hype has died down significantly.
