Cyberpunk 2077 has become one of the most controversial games of 2020, appearing in the lists of the best games of the year and the biggest disappointments at the same time. It’s controversial, due to the massive hype and RED past of the CD project, it hit a lot when it was released, but particularly the prevgen console releases have been in a state of scandal (although the game is likely to return to the PS Store soon) however, according to the latest report. Mali for a CD project, CP 2077 is clearly a success game.
On the other hand, between 10 and 31 December 2020, 13.7 million copies of the sci-fi RPG were sold, of which only 8 million were pre-ordered. As can be seen from the charts shared by the CD project below, the majority of the revenue (73%) came from Digital & PC / Stadia sales (56%).
As indicated in the previous partial report, the total revenue of the CD project in 2020 (converted from Polish zloty to dollars) was $ 560.7 million, of which $ 303.7 million was net profit.
