Games publisher, CD Project RED announced yesterday that they have fixed most of the bugs that players have been experiencing and are continuing to get the game up to par with some new features.
Once more another fix and the introduction of the side project Netflix series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has sent Cyberpunk 2077’s simultaneous clients taking off on PC, this time hitting north of 68,000 players.
Only several days back, we detailed that SteamDB(opens in new tab) recorded that the quantity of simultaneous Cyberpunk 2077(opens in new tab) players had crested at 37,000(opens in new tab), which itself was a noteworthy accomplishment for a game that topped at only 16,000 simultaneous players in August.
From that point forward the number has proceeded to endlessly climb, hitting 68,394 as of now – which is a critical accomplishment for any game moving toward its subsequent birthday, not to mention a game with as disturbed a past as Cyberpunk 2077.
What is Cyberpunk?
A CD Projekt Red game, Cyberpunk 2077 is a single-player story set in the year 2077 where high technology rules people’s lives. With an advanced level of artificial intelligence called CAI, which is short for Cybernetic Artificial Intelligence, even machines will not be trusted. Violent battles with power-armor to counter all forms of rebellion have become the norm of the day.
What made the game so popular?
Cyberpunk 2077 released back in April of last year with reviews praising the game for its presentation and style, the game was supposed to have a multiplayer mode but never saw it released. Fans were disgruntled by the lack of release of this mode, but more recently there has been an update to the game which fixed many bugs that plagued the game before. In addition to this update, Netflix is set to release an anime based on the video game.
Obviously, PC players make up a negligible portion of the general player count and don’t address all players on all stages, however it’s a decent sign of a game’s prominence, especially following its latest update(opens in new tab), which presents different fixes and interactivity enhancements as well as additional highlights.
Did you had any idea about that one of Cyberpunk: Edgerunner’s most famous characters was almost cut from the series’ cast(opens in new tab) as some at Compact disc Projekt Red idea she didn’t have a place?
Rebecca, a fiery, indecent solo edgerunner with an emphatically innocent plan almost didn’t come to the anime. Maker Saya Senior as of late uncovered that CDPR voiced worries that lolis – a term for youthful or youthful looking female characters in anime and manga – don’t normally gel with Night City’s energy.
Quick to see what else Album Projekt Red is right now concocting? Here’s beginning and end you really want to be aware of the Witcher 4(opens in new tab), which was reported as being developed recently.
Why are people playing it again?
The Cyberpunk 2077 shooter is up to 4th on the Steam charts, taking over from PUBG as the most-played game. Cyberpunk 2020 was also recently released for free for Android and iOS devices, which many believe has encouraged people to play. It’s worth noting that the Ghost in the Shell series by Masamune Shirow had long been popular among cyberpunk enthusiasts, but interest peaked with its remake starring Scarlett Johansson.
Future of Cyberpunk 2077
This spike in player interest looks to be staying steady for the foreseeable future, but without any announcements from CDPR about what comes next it’s hard to predict. Cyberpunk was expected to be the game that would end Geralt’s story, but now with only one more episode of the show left people are wondering if we’ll ever get our hands on this highly anticipated RPG. The cyberpunk genre has seen a recent surge of popularity after the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Blade Runner 2049, Ghost in the Shell (2017), Altered Carbon and several other projects, so all eyes are on CD Projekt Red to see where they take us next.
