Cyberpunk 2077 has been one of the most highly anticipated video games for millions for years now, and with the game now finally out, things should have been going swimmingly for CD Projekt RED. In a sense, they are. The game sold 8 million copies through pre-orders alone, became the biggest PC launch for a game to date, and its sales have already turned a profit for CD Projekt RED.
Even so, Cyberpunk 2077 has been at the receiving end of plenty of criticism from players and audiences following launch (its user scores on various sites stand in stark contrast to its Metacritic score), with its litany of technical issues on PS4 and Xbox One being the primary point of contention for many, and that has resulted in some bad press for CDPR.
So much so, in fact, that CD Projekt RED’s stock has fallen by 29% since the game launched, with share prices for the company falling from PLN 443 on December 4 to PLN 313.9 (via GamesIndustry).
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, while PS5 and Xbox Series X/S ports will be arriving in 2021.
