If the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 was more than chaotic with catastrophic console versions and a good PC version but with a lot of bugs, things are changing. The future of the RPG even looks quite bright. The Netflix series, for example, is a real delight and a great critical success. Better, it gave a new breath and a new impetus to the RPG by bringing in many players.
Netflix to the rescue of Cyberpunk 2077
The Cyberpunk 2077: Edgerunners series has received fairly unanimous and rave reviews, so much so that the show scores 96% on RottenTomatoes. On Metacritic it is also of the same ilk with an exceptional score of 8.9 for users.
This obviously carries over to the sales of the game, especially on PC with reviews on Steam changing course. But let’s give Caesar what is Caesar’s, the CD Projekt studio has also worked hard to try to reverse the trend. Thanks also to the patches, the game on the PlayStation Store exceeded a total of 20 million sales and experienced an impressive resurgence.
On Steam, with 16,460 positive reviews in recent weeks, Cyberpunk 2077 was finally able to go into the blue on Steam (namely to be mostly positive). A feat that is all the greater since the RPG remained in the red for a very long time on the Valve platform. A new proof that with perseverance it is quite possible for a game to go up the slope.
This Reddit comment sums up the situation a bit and the opinion of many on the matter. Namely a failed launch but a good bottom:
The heart of the story and the vision of the game were there from the start. And it is quality. The execution was a disaster. Now that they’ve done the work to fix this mess, we can finally see what they wanted the game to be.
What is your opinion on the matter? Have you given the RPG a second chance?
