Cyberpunk 2077 may have had a shockingly bad launch back in 2020, but it's easy to forget that the game still sold incredibly well — and the recent PS5 release has reportedly had a significant impact on those numbers. In its latest financial call, CD Projekt Red said that the current-gen console version of Cyberpunk accounted for the majority of the company's revenue in Q1 2022 — which isn't really a surprise.
But it sounds like the PS5 version in particular did well for itself. When Cyberpunk 2077 released on Sony's newest box, it made up the majority of the game's sales in that period — a several week span which saw total sales more than double over the previous period. It was confirmed that Cyberpunk had passed 18 million sales back in April.
Given how far Cyberpunk 2077 has come since its initial release, it's easy to understand why the game has picked up a lot of new players — especially on console. We imagine that many potential buyers were waiting for the PS5 version after hearing about the heavily criticised PS4 edition.
