Cyberpunk 2077 boosts CD Projekt sales revenue 310% in 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 boosts CD Projekt sales revenue 310% in 2020

Polish games firm CD Projekt reckons it saw a 310 per cent increase in consolidated sales revenue last year.

That's according to a current report on the company's investor relations page, which says that the firm estimates consolidated sales revenue of zł2.1 billion ($562.9 million) for the period, a 310 per cent increase on the zł521 million it recorded during 2019.

Furthermore, CD Projekt estimates a net profit of zł1.2 billion ($303.7 million), a massive 559 per cent increase on the zł175 million it clocked last year.

For the time being, these are just estimates, with CD Projekt set to publish its annual earnings report next week on April 22nd.

The massive increase in both sales revenue and profit is down to – what else? – Cyberpunk 2077. Though the game has had a troubled launch period, it has been very popular. Ahead of launch, the eagerly-anticipated sci-fi RPG was pre-ordered eight million times and within ten days of its release, CD Projekt reported sales of 13 million copies. SuperData said that digital PC games revenue was up 40 per cent in December 2020 thanks to Cyberpunk 2077. 

The studio has had to confirm that it has no intention of giving up on Cyberpunk 2077 and has committed to fix the myriad problems with the game.
