Cyberpunk 2077 on PC: not bad. Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles: not great. Actually, it’s been pretty awful on consoles, especially older-gen PS4s and Xbox Ones. CD Projekt Red has acknowledged they didn’t give development enough time to get Cyberpunk working on consoles and have promised to get things fixed later this year.
And as you might expect, this appears to have had a cooling effect on Cyberpunk 2077’s sales. After being the number 2 seller for all of December, Cyberpunk 2077 has plummeted all the way down to 18 in The NPD Group’s sales chart (thanks, Kotaku). Here’s the whole list.
- Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War
- Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Madden NFL 21
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
- Ring Fit Adventure
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
- NBA 2K21
- Super Mario 3D All-Stars
- FIFA 21
- Immortals: Fenyx Rising
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Just Dance 2021
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition
- Cyberpunk 2077
- Super Mario Party
- UFC 4
Note that even years-old games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Mortal Kombat 11 are out-selling Cyberpunk on consoles at this point. But we should also point out that CD Projekt Red doesn’t provide The NPD Group with their digital sales numbers, so all this is compiled using physical game sales only. It’s possible things might look a bit better for Cyberpunk if digital sales were included.
Still, it looks like CD Projekt Red is in the black with Cyberpunk 2077. The company sold 13 million units, and even with an estimated 2 million of those refunded, there’s still enough left for the game to be profitable, if only just. But with no new sales coming in, CD Projekt Red is going to have to dig into their reserves to continue the game’s development and deliver on their promised next-gen and previous-gen updates.
Meanwhile, CD Projekt Red is at the center of an audacious ransomware attack that reportedly made off with Cyberpunk’s source code. It was then sold on the dark web to an unknown buyer, according to internet security firms monitoring the situation. We still don’t know who it is, but CDPR vowed not to negotiate with the hacker group responsible for the theft.

Actually a collective of 6 hamsters piloting a human-shaped robot, Sean hails from Toronto, Canada. Passionate about gaming from a young age, those hamsters would probably have taken over the world by now if they didn’t vastly prefer playing and writing about video games instead.
The hamsters are so far into their long-con that they’ve managed to acquire a bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo and used that to convince the fine editors at TheGamer that they can write “gud werds,” when in reality they just have a very sophisticated spellchecker program installed in the robot’s central processing unit.
