Cyberpunk 2077 simply hit its highest participant rely since launch
After years of letdown, it seems like Cyberpunk has been redeemed
Cyberpunk 2077 has had a reasonably tumultuous few years, with all of the hype main as much as its launch, gamers feeling let down when the sport lastly got here out, after which the next redemption as CD Projekt Pink patched bugs and expanded on the sport fairly a bit. Extra gamers have been flocking to the title than they’ve in months, and now Cyberpunk 2077 has reached its highest participant rely since its launch, in keeping with the Steam Charts.
The variety of concurrent gamers hit its peak again in December 2020 with over one million concurrent gamers after launch. By January, nevertheless, the rely had dropped to simply over 80,000, principally as a result of disappointment from damaged builds and unfulfilled guarantees from devs. This previous weekend, the numbers have been as much as over 85,000, which is probably the most gamers it has had in almost two years.
The spike in gamers is partly as a result of launch of Studio Set off’s Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime, which has been well-received by followers and critics alike. Patch 1.6 for the sport additionally included Edgerunners content material, which might have been a draw to return to Cyberpunk 2077. Then there’s the truth that the sport has been marked down a substantial quantity since launch, going as little as 50% just lately.
This isn’t the primary time a recreation has gotten one other probability after a launch that allow us down. No Man’s Sky is an ideal instance of this — after Hey Video games co-founder Sean Murray promised huge issues on behalf of the studio, like an infinite variety of explorable, distinctive planets made doable by procedural technology, gamers discovered the sport to be missing in depth, and completely not delivering on the grandiose guarantees. Much like Cyberpunk it’s managed to return again with a collection of content material and high quality of life updates, and whereas it’s not fairly my factor, I’ve heard No Man’s Sky is a ton of enjoyable now.
Simply goes to point out that within the fashionable age of patches and reside updates, a nasty launch shouldn’t be the kiss of dying it as soon as was.
