Cyberpunk 2077 has made up almost the majority of the game world news since its official release earlier this month. Of course, not in the way that CD Project expected. Although the initial comments of critics in the world’s leading publications were considered quite positive, over time it became clear that the console versions of the game suffer from many technical problems; So that some users were not able to experience this game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at all.
Over the past month, a lot of criticism of the game eventually led to the removal of Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store list and the addition of the “Performance Warning” tag to the game in the exclusive Xbox Store. On the other hand, a large number of buyers of this game on Sony and Microsoft consoles, decided to return the game and receive a payment. Considering all this, it seems that the sales statistics of this game are still experiencing very good conditions.
According to a new report published on the CD Projekt RED website, Cyberpunk has sold more than 13 million copies so far, despite its widespread return by buyers. In fact, games that have been physically or digitally recalled so far are not counted in this statistic. However, the company did not provide details on the number of games that have been returned so far.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to sell more than 13 million copies as of December 20, 2020, according to reports from physical and digital video game distribution and sales platforms. This statistic includes game sales on all hardware platforms. In addition, all physical and digital versions of this game that have been returned by buyers so far have not been included in this statistic. “The official number of copies returned to the publisher by the time the report is submitted will be calculated through emails from the ‘Help Me Refund’ campaign sent directly to the company.”
Undoubtedly, Cyberpunk 2077 created a lot of excitement and hype among the audience. The long period of development and development of this game since 2012, along with the high costs that were allocated for advertising and introducing the game during these years, had raised public expectations for the quality of this action and role-playing game. Of course, CD Project has promised that with various updates that it will release for various versions of this game, it will gradually solve all its problems. In any case, we have to wait and see how this game will perform in the future after overcoming the challenges and margins of release time.
