Cyberpunk 2077 hits 20m sales

Troubled dark sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077 has sold over 20 million copies to date.

The news comes via the game's official Twitter account amidst something of a resurgence in popularity. This is due to the Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime on Netflix, which has brought in players both new and old to the title. In fact, co-CEO Marcin Iwinski said that the game had been played by one million people each day following the show's release.

"Over 20 million cyberpunks have been roaming the streets of Night City – partying with Jackie and getting to know Johnny, driving around with Panam and diving with Judy, hanging out with River and listening to Kerry’s songs," CD Projekt posted on Twitter.

"Thank you and we hope to see you all in the Afterlife!"

This means that the game has sold more than two million copies since April of this year, when the official count was 18 million units.

Before launch, Cyberpunk 2077 was pre-ordered eight million times. Following release, the title had shifted 12 million copies.
