First impressions are important, and Cyberpunk 2077 players didn’t get a good one – when CD Projekt Red’s latest open-world game launched at the end of 2020, players were put off by a laundry list of bugs, which prompted a firestorm of negative publicity in both the press and player communities.

The developer has put in lots of work on Cyberpunk 2077 since then, but it’s been the release of Cyberpunk Edgerunners on Netflix that’s finally prompted players to return to the game.

After Edgerunners’ debut September 13, CD Projekt Red says, a million players visited Night City every day of the following week.

Judging from Cyberpunk 2077’s Steam player data, that number is still trending upward – the peak player counts for the past three days have been more than 80,000, and that’s not counting everyone playing the GOG version or on consoles.
