Cyberpunk 2077 CD Project Reds RPG Extracts Extreme upswing on Steam

Cyberpunk 2077 is an action role-playing video clip game established and also published by CD Project. The tale occurs in Evening City, an open world set in the Cyberpunk world. Gamers assume the first-person point of view of a customizable mercenary referred to as V, that can acquire skills in hacking and also machinery with choices for melee as well as ranged battle.
The game was established using the RED engine 4 by a team of around 500 people, going beyond the number that worked with the workshop’s previous game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015). CD Project introduced a brand-new division in Wrocław, Poland, as well as partnered with Digital Escapes, Nvidia, BLOC, as well as Jail Study to help the manufacturing. Cyberpunk designer Mike Pond smith was an expert, and also star Keanu Reeves has a starring duty. The original rating was led by Marcin Przybyłowicz, featuring the payments of several accredited artists.
After years of anticipation, CD Project released Cyberpunk 2077 for PlayStation 4, Stadia, Windows, as well as Xbox One on 10 December 2020, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions intended to follow in the very first quarter of 2022. It got appreciation from movie critics for its story, setting, and also graphics, although a few of its gameplay aspects obtained mixed feedbacks, while its themes as well as depiction of transgender characters obtained some examination. It was also extensively criticized for pests, particularly in the console variations, which suffered from efficiency troubles; Sony eliminated it from the PlayStation Store from December 2020 to June 2021 while CD Project corrected several of the problems. CD Project came to be based on investigations and class-action legal actions for their perceived attempts in downplaying the intensity of the technical troubles prior to launch.

The launch of cyberpunk 2077 last year as a controversial, would probably only map the tip of the iceberg. After countless shifts, the PC version was quite some positive evaluations, but the console versions compared to a total failure velvet removal from the PlayStation Store.

Now, just a short year after release, it is a little better ordered around the role-playing game, even if the developers of CD project Red have not arrived at the end of their journey. There should be no more updates this year, but the next year is already fully planned. In the past, it was also supported by support from the modding community and responded to fan criticism of the Mini DLC.

How does the sudden upswing of cyberpunk 2077 come from?

The strategies from CD project Red seem to wear fruits proves a look at Steam. There is Cyberpunk 2077 (Buy Now €46.99) Not only a enormous inlet of new players, but also numerous positive reviews. The Quest Director of the Game, Pawed Sask, shared his joy already on Twitter:

In the last few days Cyberpunk 2077 has experienced a flood of positive reviews of new players on Steam. You can not imagine how much I mean. Over 15,000 very positive reviews in the last days, while both Cyberpunk 2077 and the Witcher 3 Sitting on the global list of steam’s best-selling games. Thank you very much!

In addition to the bug fixes and new content, this upswing should probably result mainly from Steam Autumn Sale, where the role-play is currently reduced for whopping 50% and thus only 29.99 euros costs. Since the PC version has already been the most convincing variant since Launch, many players took the tempting offer for the occasion to see the still existing problems.

CD project red is confident about the future of cyberpunk 2077

In an interview with the Polish magazine Rzeczpospolita (via NGC), Adam Kaminski, CEO of CD project RED, also talked about the future of cyberpunk 2077, which he confidently opposes: We believe that Cyberpunk 2077 will be considered in the long run as a very good game and is the same as our other titles for years — especially when hardware will become stronger, and we improve the game.

We are constantly working on updates and also in the up-to-date console generation version. Of course, the original release has taught us a lot. He gave us the kick and motivated us to make the changes to us in the future to a better studio will do.

Whether Kaminski’s predictions will arrive, of course, only the future can show that current situation on Steam seems to be a good reason for his self-confidence. On the other hand, on Reddit, was still very skeptical and reacted to the statements of CEO with cynicism. All talk about the bugs, but do not forget the many features that you have advertised and then not there, writes a user.
