Superdata recently shared the video game industry sales figures for December 2020 and Cyberpunk 2077 dominates all rankings. Even plagued by bugs and several other problems, the game earns the title of greatest digital release in history.
According to the data collected, even the refunds did not affect the total sales figures, which exceeded 10 million units in digital format.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a tremendous success, whether you like it or not
The game’s marketing campaign and the success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gave the CD Projekt Red RPG the necessary strength to beat all sorts of records.
Despite all the problems that led to its removal from the PlayStation Store, several players did not hesitate when opening the laces to the bag.
The market for the sale of video games in digital format also recorded a record in December last year, with revenues in the order of 12 billion dollars. This value is the highest recorded in a single month since this type of data began to be collected and analyzed.
Gaming market is growing from year to year
Superdata recalls that the profits registered here represent an increase of 15% in relation to the previous year. This is not to be ignored by the pandemic scenario and the fact that more people are at home.
Almost all of the great online games of the moment were also entitled to an increase in the number of players. GTA Online and Fortnite lead the way, driven by events or new content expansions.
In the opposite direction is Among Us, which after the incredible numbers of last month saw the number of active players drop. Still, it is 3 times more popular than the second most played game, Roblox.
