Cyberpunk 2077 has seen some great resurgence in the last couple of weeks. With Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime by Studio Trigger rising to critical acclaim, and the game receiving its 1.6 Edgerunner updates, many have flocked back to the title. The resurgence went so well that the title crossed 100,000+ all-time player peak on Steam.
It seems the resurgence went too well for the title. Officially announcing it on Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter, the company confirmed the updated sales number for the title. As of last night, Cyberpunk 2077 sold 20 million copies.
Over 20 million cyberpunks have been roaming the streets of Night City – partying with Jackie and getting to know Johnny, driving around with Panam and diving with Judy, hanging out with River and listening to Kerry’s songs.

This is up from the 18 million sales report by CD Projekt Red in April. In comparison, as of April, The Witcher 3 sold 40 million units. The Witcher Franchise as a whole has shipped over 65 million units.
Quite possibly one of the most anticipated titles of the last generation, Cyberpunk 2077 had a very rough start. With reports of numerous content cuts from the game and the last-generation version of the title not performing as expected.
The situation worsened so bad that both Xbox and Sony started offering refunds for the title on PS4 and Xbox One. PlayStation even pulled the game off of their platform. For a title with such a horrid rough start, this is some impressive player resurgence, which even CD Projekt Red agrees with.
Cyberpunk 2077 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Announced a few weeks early, the title will receive its first expansion, Phantom Liberty in 2023. Furthermore, the development of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will officially cease in 2023, with the focus going on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
