First impressions are important, and Cyberpunk 2077 players didn’t get a bully 1 – erstwhile CD Projekt Red’s latest open-world game launched astatine the extremity of 2020, players were enactment disconnected by a laundry database of bugs, which prompted a firestorm of negative publicity successful some the property and subordinate communities. The developer has enactment successful lots of work connected Cyberpunk 2077 since then, but it’s been the merchandise of Cyberpunk Edgerunners connected Netflix that’s yet prompted players to instrumentality to the game.
After Edgerunners’ debut September 13, CD Projekt Red says, a cardinal players visited Night City each time of the pursuing week. Judging from Cyberpunk 2077’s Steam subordinate data, that fig is inactive trending upward – the highest subordinate counts for the past 3 days person been much than 80,000, and that’s not counting everyone playing the GOG mentation oregon connected consoles.
Of course, that’s obscurity adjacent to the million concurrent players Cyberpunk 2077 saw on Steam alone successful the archetypal fewer days aft it launched, but it’s good supra wherever it’s been sitting since past – concurrent players counts person been sitting successful the 15,000 scope for astir of the summer, aft a little surge successful precocious February pursuing the 1.5 patch.
Edgerunners coincided with another large update for Cyberpunk 2077, spot 1.6, which added immoderate bonus contented drawn from the anime series, arsenic good arsenic the much-requested wardrobe transmog system. We’ve besides learned a small astir the archetypal DLC expansion, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, which volition spot V embroiled successful a “spy-thriller” acceptable successful an all-new territory successful Night City erstwhile it launches successful aboriginal 2023.
Cyberpunk 2077’s mediocre archetypal interaction acceptable the communicative for the crippled for the pursuing year, and I’ve gone connected the grounds arsenic believing it could person been a batch different. Perhaps Edgerunners volition beryllium the catalyst for a large displacement successful however this fascinating crippled is thought of and discussed going forward.
