Just a few days ago Activision Blizzard shared their achievement – World of Warcraft: Shadowlands became the fastest-selling PC game in history, selling over 3.7 million units on day one. However, announcing the news we guesstimated that the record will hold only for a few days until Cyberpunk 2077 hits the shelves. And we proved right. CD Projekt Red’s game shattered the record and sold 4.72 million copies of Cyberpunk 2077 on day one.
According to the news, Cyberpunk 2077 reached almost 8 million pre-orders across all platforms, so PC versions made up 59 percent of the sales. It’s also interesting that 74 percent of the copies sold on day one (about 5.9 million units) were purchased digitally. The rest are physical copies including a bunch of collector’s editions.
Some big numbers were also seen on Twitch as during its launch, Cyberpunk 2077 streaming category had over 1.1 million average viewers.
While these numbers clearly show that Cyberpunk 2077 is a commercial success, CD Projekt Red has some issues to solve. Many PC and console players are already reporting numerous bugs found within the game and some are already requesting refunds from the developers.
While CD Projekt Red’s shares are dipping, #Cyberbug2077 is the most popular hashtag on Twitter, we suggest you all to stay patient. We’re sure that developers are hard at work trying to fix all the issues with the game. With the next-gen version coming in a few months we’re sure that all these Cyberbugs will be squashed and Cyberpunk 2077 will become a game we all have been waiting for. You wouldn’t want to miss that, wouldn’t you?
