Jokes aside, 20 million copies sold is never anything to scoff at, no matter the size of the game.
It’s definitely making some kind of a comeback though, as it took two years to sell 4 million copies after launch to hit 18 million total and only about four months to sell another 2 million, to get to 20.
Even in recent weeks there’s been a spike of support and players for Cyberpunk 2077, largely due to the Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime, which has served both as a great entry point for those who’ve not yet played Cyberpunk 2077, and a reminder to return to Night City for veteran players.
Now that Cyberpunk 2077 is beginning to pick up speed, it’ll be interesting to see how opinions on the game change in the coming years.
