Credit where credit’s due: Cyberpunk 2077 is back. It’s been over two years since the game’s disastrous PS4 launch, but now running robustly on PS5 – and with a critically acclaimed anime to complement it – players are returning to Night City in their droves. In fact, the release’s resurgence has been so strong that Polish developer CD Projekt RED has enjoyed a record third quarter.
The game recently received a patch which boosted its already impressive new-gen visuals even further, and it added crossover content with Netflix’s Cyberpunk: Edgerunners back in September. This propelled the release’s sales to extraordinary new levels, and according to CDPR it’s been attracting around one million concurrent players per day of late.
