More Bad News for CD Projekt RED
According to official GitHyp data based on Steam figures, Cyberpunk 2077 has seen a significant playerbase drop since it launched. According to GitHyp, 79% of Cyberpunk 2077 players on Steam have flown the coop and found other games to play, with its current peak being over 200,000 players, a significant dip compared to its December peak of over a million players. Cyberpunk 2077 is available right now for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Google Stadia.
GitHyp said that “79% drop in players is worrying, most singleplayer games typically lose around the same amount of players, if not even more, after their first month on Steam.” Open world games typically maintain a certain level of players, but it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 is bleeding players unlike games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. While the playerbase has heavily declined, CD Projekt RED has confirmed a release schedule for patch fixes coming later this month and next month which will surely attract some lapsed fans, and future DLC may attract anyone else.
The Witcher 3 didn’t see the same peak viewership that Cyberpunk 2077 saw in December, only maintaining around 92,000 players since it released and recently breaking its concurrent playerbase with 103,000 players in January. Despite the decline in playerbase, Cyberpunk 2077 maintains a positive score on Steam, and PC players are widely reporting a better experience on the platform compared to gamers on Xbox One and PS4.
