Cyberpunk 2077 Lost 79% of Steam Player Base Since Launch
Despite selling 13 million copies at launch, GitHyp reported that Cyberpunk 2077 has lost 79% of its player base on Steam since its launch last month.
According to GitHyp’s data, Cyberpunk struggled to peak at 225,000 players this past weeked. This is a stark contrast to its metrics just three weeks ago, when it saw more than one million concurrent players on Steam.
It should be worth noting that CD PROJEKT RED’s previous title, The Witcher 3, only peaked with 92,000 players when it was released in May of 2015. Despite this, the title was still able to maintain more than half its player base, with a peak of 55,000 players just one month later.
Cyberpunk 2077 transports players to Night City as the customisable mercenary V. After choosing from the Nomad, Streetkid, or Corpo lifepaths, players will acquire skills in hacking and machinery, complete with options for both melee and ranged combat.
