Cyberpunk 2077: new and returning players flock to Night City
The CD Projekt studio is making a thunderous return with Cyberpunk 2077, which we can even consider as a great story. Almost two years after its chaotic release, the title seems to be mobilizing more players than ever. Witness the figures recorded on Steam that we were telling you about the other day, which have increased: a peak of 86,130 simultaneous players has now been recorded. Far from upsetting the game record (at over a million) but it is an interesting trend to watch. And that’s not the only witness to the game’s return to prominence: there’s also CD Projekt’s statement from last night:
Each day of this week Night City has been visited by 1 million players, both new and returning.
We wanted to use this opportunity to thank you for being with us and playing the game. Thanks, Chooms! 💛 pic.twitter.com/zqggblztF8

A success probably due to the animated adaptation Cyberpunk: Edge Runners available for a week on Netflix and which has been hailed by critics… But not only. Cyberpunk 2077 has, since its release, been the subject of special attention from its developers. Many correction patches (often very massive) were brought. Recently, it is the 1.6 which is deployed and this version is the synonym of a conclusion: it is the last patch that will be hosted by older generation consolesi.e. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
“Thank you for this second chance”
These builds, often seen as shelved by many players. These are the versions that put the game in a delicate situation: when it was released, they were not free from technical malfunctions or bugs, involuntary powering down of the console or even a frozen screen. An overall mediocre quality that sees CD Projekt apologizing but that’s not enough: Cyberpunk 2077 is even removed from digital stores, especially Sony’s. Several investors immediately filed a complaint claiming that CD Projekt tricked them. In short, several complicated situations to manage for the Polish studio which has always wanted to believe in it. The numbers, synonymous with success for the game, must provide relief. In any case, that’s what we can believe from the sight of Pawel Sasko’s tweet, in-game quest designer :
Thank you very much the chooms for this second chance.
As mentioned above, the success of Edgerunners (Trigger) is not unknown there especially as content related to the television adaptation has been incorporated into Cyberpunk 2077. Players can now step into the shoes of David Martinez, collect the iconic equipment of the series as well as various and varied quests. A story like the prologue crossed by V, the hero of Cyberpunk 2077.
