After a week of refunds, apologies and patches, CD Projekt Red announced the open world SFRPG yesterday. Cyberpunk 2077 Nevertheless, since its release on December 10, it has sold more than 13 million copies in total.This is reportedly slowing game performance on the latest generation consoles and some low-end PCs. Working conditions due to overtime It started making it.

“”[CDPR] It is estimated that by December 20, comprehensive gamers had purchased more than 13 million copies of Cyberpunk 2077, based on reports obtained from digital distribution platforms and data collected from physical distributors.

That is,” sell-through. ” Is the number minus all refund requests. Within the framework of the “Help Me Refund” campaign, it was mailed directly to the company by the publication date of this report. “

Close readers will recognize some apparent warnings in this announcement. The biggest is that the 13 million numbers appear to be estimates rather than strictly based on actual existing sales data. The statement also states that it represents total sales minus all refunds requested, but whether it reflects most of all refunds, simply by retailers so far. It’s not clear if there was time to report. CDPR did not immediately respond to a request for comment to clarify the comment.

CDPR First apologize for the state of the game Suggest how disappointed people on December 14th Cyberpunk 2077 You can get a refund when you play.
