On Thursday (10/12/2020), the Cyberpunk 2077 game was officially launched by CD Projekt Red (CDPR). This launch was finally realized after experiencing various delays.
You can play this action role-playing game on PC (Steam and Epic Games Store). Previously, this game was launched on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S.
More than one million people who played it
Even though it just release, Cyberpunk 2077 has successfully sparked great enthusiasm from fans.
This can be seen from the high number of gamers who play this game simultaneously on the Steam distribution platform. The figure is more than one million.
Cyberpunk 2077 also broke the record for the most concurrent single player game players on Steam. The previous record holder was the game Fallout 4 which recorded around 472,000 active players simultaneously at its launch in 2015.
Usually, games that record a high number of concurrent players on Steam are a multiplayer type, such as CS: GO and DotA 2. Meanwhile, Cyberpunk 2077 does not provide multiplayer feature.
Due to the high number of Cyberpunk 2077 players, the Steam server was even reported to have crashed, as compiled by KompasTekno from Clutch Points, Thursday (10/12/2020).
This moment was also shared by Pawel Sasko as the Lead Quest Designer of Cyberpunk 2077. Through his personal Twitter account, Sasko also expressed his gratitude to fans.
“We just reached 1 million active players on Steam. Thank you very much!” wrote Sasko in his tweet, quoting Techno Kompas.
