Cyberpunk 2077 has seen a massive resurgence in players over the past week, likely due to the new Netflix anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. However, while the vast majority of the story surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 since its release has been tied to its dismal state at launch, developer CD Project Red has put a lot of effort into the project from time to time to improve the game. , with Edgerunners focusing a whole new light on the IP, it looks like the game will get rich again.
Thanks to Steam Charts, which tracks player activity on Valve’s Steam platform for PC, Cyberpunk 2077 has seen a remarkable increase in player numbers over the past two days. This time last week, Cyberpunk 2077 was hit by a number of concurrent players which made around 15,000. And while that’s not necessarily a horrible amount, after Cyberpunk: Edgerunners launched on Netflix, that number skyrocketed. Over the weekend, Cyberpunk 2077 topped just over 85,000 concurrent players on Steam alone. Assuming the resurgence is seen on Xbox and PlayStation, it looks like CD Projekt’s futuristic RPG will finally get lost.
To further explain how important this is for Cyberpunk 2077, last weekend’s concurrent player count is the highest seen in the game since February 2021. Although Cyberpunk 2077 kicked off massively in December 2020, its first players fell immediately. after many fans found the title in dire straits. In short, Cyberpunk 2077 is finally finding a new audience in the perfect place, especially as CD Projekt Red prepares to release the game’s only major expansion, Phantom Liberty sometime in 2023.
