CD Projekt Red announced on Thursday that Cyberpunk 2077 has sold over 20 million copies.

The Power of Anime

The developer shared the news of this remarkable achievement with a thank you tweet to its community.

“Over 20 million cyberpunks have been roaming the streets of Night City – partying with Jackie and getting to know Johnny, driving around with Panam and diving with Judy, hanging out with River and listening to Kerry’s songs.”

“Thank you and we hope to see you all in the Afterlife!” CD Projekt Red added. Afterlife is an in-game nightclub that caters primarily to mercs and muscle.

The game sold 13 million copies in the first two weeks after its launch in 2020. However, its popularity dropped quickly following numerous corner cuts and technical shortcomings players came across. For a time, Sony even removed the game’s PS4 version from its store.

Fast-forward to 2022, and Cyberpunk 2077 has steadily improved. In April, CD Projekt Red announced the game had sold 18 million copies.

Following the success of its anime series Cyberpunk 2077: Edgerunners, more new and returning players started roaming Night City. The game even started pulling in over one million players daily.

Numerous in-game fixes and the popularity of the Netflix show now led to the game finally reaching the 20 million copies sold milestone.

Earlier this month, CD Projekt Red announced the Phantom Liberty expansion featuring more Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand.
