CHARTS: CD Projekt's Cyberpunk 2077 holds Steam No.1 spot for second week since launch

The recently-released Cyberpunk 2077 was the highest-selling title on Steam once again.

This is the second time that the eagerly-anticipated RPG has taken the top spot since its launch on December 10th and followed two weeks at No.1 before thanks to pre-orders. Developer CD Projekt has said that the title was pre-ordered eight million times, with the game attracting more than one million concurrent users within hours of its release. 

Second place goes to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive DLC Operation Broken Fang, which debuted in the No.2 spot last week, while Valve's Index VR headset holds steady in third.

Horror co-op title Phasmophobia from developer Kinetic is once again the fourth best-selling game on Steam, while Supergiant's Hades leapt from No.8 to fifth week-on-week. This is likely due to the nods that the indie hit won at last week's The Game Awards.

Multiplayer smash hit Among Us drops on place to No.6, while Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 rose from ninth to No.7 thanks to a sales event on Steam. The recently-launched Football Manager 2021 fell one position to eighth, while CD Projekt's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition re-entered the Top Ten at No.9. This is likely due to excitement surrounding the studio's latest release, Cyberpunk 2077.

Rounding up the Top Ten this week is EA's Star Wars Battlefront II, which is currently 70 per cent off.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending December 12th:

1. Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt
2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Operation Broken Fang, Valve
3. Valve Index VR Kit, Valve
4. Phasmophobia, Kinetic Games
5. Hades, Supergiant
6. Among Us, Innersloth
7. Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar
8. Football Manager 2021, Sega
