Cyberpunk 2077's incredible anime-fueled comeback has broken another impressive milestone, with the once-maligned RPG smashing the same-day concurrent player record of its wildly popular predecessor, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It's an incredible feat, especially when you consider the state the game launched in almost two years ago.
Industry analyst Benji-Sales noted the achievement after Cyberpunk 2077's concurrent Steam player count sailed north of The Witcher 3's all-time peak of 103,329.
This upward trend continued as the combination of Edgerunner's positive buzz, a half-price sale on Steam, and the fact of the weekend being scientifically the most optimal time to play video games saw the numbers continue to ascend to dizzying heights.
It's a fascinating twist in the ongoing Cyberpunk saga, which will officially conclude with the upcoming Phantom Liberty expansion. Of course, all of this is only going off of the relevant Steam data available for PC players, we can only imagine how many of our console brethren were logged in over the weekend as well.
