CEO Adam Kiciński announced the new milestone during an investor presentation today.
“The phenomenal Witcher 3 achieved a similar level in 4.5 years and here [in Cyberpunk’s case], a little bit over two years [since its release], so we are selling far faster than we were selling the Witcher game,” he said.
Cyberpunk 2077 was billed as one of the biggest titles of the last console generation, with the heavily anticipated game selling eight million copies via pre-orders alone, according to CD Projekt.
That total rose to 13 million during the game’s launch month in December 2020.
Chief financial officer Piotr Nielubowicz also announced today that the game’s first and only expansion, Phantom Liberty, sold three million copies between its release on September 26 and October 3.
“Sales for the first week until October 3 were three million copies,” he said.
“To contextualise this, we estimated how many gamers now have the main game on PC or the new consoles—all the platforms that allow to you play it—and it’s 20 million.
“20 million players who either have the main game or have updated the old-gen version to the new-gen version. So, 15% of all the gamers within one week bought the expansion.
“This is a phenomenal result and this is just the beginning – the sales keep on climbing.”
