Market research firm Nielsen announced that Cyberpunk 2077 broke a historic record by selling a total of 10.2 million copies from digital platforms in December.
Cyberpunk 2077, which made one of the most problematic breakthroughs in the gaming industry, managed to achieve impressive sales figures despite everything that happened. Research firm Nielsen / SuperData, which published reports on the past year, announced that Cyberpunk 2077 has made the biggest digital opening in game history.
According to the figures shared by SuperData, Cyberpunk 2077 managed to sell 10.2 million copies on digital platforms in December 2020. SuperData said 80% of total digital sales came from the PC platform alone. Finally, it is stated that digital sales figures have decreased significantly due to the removal of Cyberpunk 2077 from the PS Store.
CD Project RED announced in an official statement on December 22 that Cyberpunk 2077 sold a total of 13 million copies. In another statement on the day of release, the company said that the game received 8 million pre-orders, of which 4.72 million belonged to the PC.
Cyberpunk 2077 opened with records by taking advantage of great excitement and anticipation during its release period. However, it is estimated that the sales speed of the game has slowed down in a short time due to the scandals experienced. Currently, some retailers in the US, such as Amazon, Best Buy, have started selling Cyberpunk 2077 for $ 30. Of course, it’s not a good sign that the price of such a big game could drop by half in just one month.
