Cyberpunk 2077: number of players on Steam is in free fall!

Cyberpunk 2077: number of players on Steam is in free fall!

For better or worse reasons Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most talked about and controversial games of recent years. Plagued by all sorts of problems on all platforms, it seems that the PC is the last bastion of hope since this version is the one that receives the least complaints.

Even so, the number of CD Projekt RED RPG players on Steam is in free fall, having lost 79% of its base since launch. This high number may call into question not only the future of one of the most anticipated titles in history but also the studio that produced it.

Fewer and fewer people play Cyberpunk 2077 on Steam

In the days that followed the launch on December 10, 2020, the game counted steadily with over one million players simultaneously on the Valve platform. The analyzes published by users, about 300,000, were mostly favorable.

According to Steam’s metrics over the past weekend, the number of simultaneous players in Cyberpunk 2077 has dropped to a peak of just 225,000.

With some pocket math we can conclude that about 750,000 people have already abandoned Night City and the protagonist V to their fate.

The number gains even more relevance when compared to CDPR’s previous work, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which took three times as long to lose the same percentage of players on the platform.

Fall may not be worrying

Despite all the particular circumstances of this game, it is not uncommon for narrative singleplayer games to experience an abrupt decrease in the number of players.

Steam data indicates that games that do not offer some kind of multiplayer component show a tendency to lose much of its user base within a month.

Moreover, with the pandemic scenario and more free hours that people typically have at this time of year, it is very possible that several fans have already finished the game and are now looking for new challenges.
