Cyberpunk 2077 Stats on Steam 8 Days After Launch

Cyberpunk 2077 did not have the best launch, but mainly because of the console releases. Did CD Projekt RED's latest work also failed on PC? The answer is provided by Steam's statistics.

The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 was definitely not as successful as one might expect, especially on consoles. Of course, players express their disappointment on the web, although in one case they may have went too far. However, this has not translated into the game's popularity on PC. According to SteamSpy website, the game has more than 10 million users on Steam alone. We don't have data from GOG.com or Epic Games Store, but we can assume that Cyberpunk 2077 has found many buyers on these platforms too.

Of course, buying the game is one thing, but it doesn't necessarily mean spending time playing it. However, if we take a look at Steam's statistics, we will see how many people still visit Night City. At the time of writing this news, more than 380,000 users are playing Cyberpunk 2077, making the game the third most popular title on the platform. If we take into account the daily record of the last 24 hours, the title jumps to second place, overtaking Dota 2.

CD Projekt RED can't complain about the game's Steam user ratingseither, as with over 211,000 opinions about Cyberpunk 2077 , almost 80% are positive. At first glance, this is not a result worthy of such an anticipated production, especially when compared to the overwhelming enthusiasm visible on the page of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Nevertheless, Cyberpunk 2077 still performs better than one might think after the reaction of PC gamers to the free extras that appeared in Death Stranding. For comparison: Grand Theft Auto V was rated positively by 81% of the 877,000 people who wrote a review on Steam.

The popularity of Cyberpunk 2077 is also confirmed by Twitch statistics, where the game is the second most watched game. At the time of writing this text, CD Projekt's latest work is ranked seventh on the list of titles with the highest number of viewers. Some users would say is that it is thanks to console players, who cannot visit Night City on their 8th-gen platforms themselves. Hopefully this will change if not this year, at least in the first weeks of January.
