The Cyberpunk 2077 video game already exceeds one million players on Steam at launch, something unusual for a single-player game.
Cyberpunk 2077 has been one of the most anticipated games, if not the most, of 2020. Originally announced in 2012, the game has encountered several delays this year, with its release date initially set for April 2020. The developers from CD Projekt Red criticized for squeezing their team inside their offices in an effort to get the game released as soon as possible. But, even with this kind of pressure, there were still further delays before the game was finally released today.
Set in the dystopian future of Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 has received praise for its incredible character creation system, open-world mechanics, and unique in-game content. However, on the other hand, it has also received negative reviews for its seizure scenes (although the developers have said that these particular bits of the game will potentially be altered soon). And, unfortunately for the overworked CD Projekt Red, this hasn’t been the only area where Cyberpunk 2077 has fallen short; Despite the game’s lengthy release process, Cyberpunk 2077 is riddled with bugs.
However, these reviews haven’t stifled fan enthusiasm for Cyberpunk 2077, and the player base has already been monumental. The popular games marketplace Steam has published figures showing that, at its launch, more than a million players were already playing Cyberpunk 2077 through the Steam game distribution system. This is an unheard-of figure for any previous single-player game. The result of this influx of players caused the website to crash, meaning that even with these record numbers, some of the people who wanted to play it couldn’t.
With all the excitement, chaos, and hysteria that has surrounded the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red is now working hard to ensure that the game lives up to its fans’ expectations going forward. An upcoming patch has promised to fix most of the bugs and bugs present in the game. Hopefully, these bugs will soon be a thing of the past for those hoping to take a tour of Night City alongside Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand.
Even with everything that is currently happening with Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red is already looking to the future of the game. In its launch trailer, there were hints of an upcoming DLC, as well as expansions, spotted by fans. CD Projekt Red will certainly have a lot of work to do to ensure that Cyberpunk 2077 – and any future additional content – turns out to be everything fans hoped it would be.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamor, and body modification.
