The Cyberpunk train just keeps on rolling of late. As of today (September 28, 2022) CD Projekt Red’s sci-fi action roleplaying game has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. This is according to VGChartz, which reported that the figure was up from around 18 million copies sold as of mid-April this year.
The game’s official Twitter account put out a celebratory post thanking all those who had played the game.
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.
Thank you and we hope to see you all in the Afterlife! pic.twitter.com/ifFLhg6npO

Those 20 million sales are even more impressive when seen in the light of the game’s December 2020 launch, which could be described as something of a disaster, with the game in a clearly unfinished state and plagues with numerous technical issues.
The team has brought the game a long way since however, and for fans of Cyberpunk 2077 the future has never looked brighter. Only last week we reported that the game was getting over 1 million players daily, thanks in some part to the release of the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners animated series on Netflix.
And earlier this month, the game’s first—and apparently only—major expansion, dubbed “Phantom Liberty,” was announced along with a trailer, giving denizens of Night City even more to get excited about. Nearly two years after the game’s release, it is beginning to look like Cyberpunk 2077 may live up to its hype after all.
