The latest player count is tremendous information for Cyberpunk 2077, this is huge information for the RPG because it rose this weekend to the very best it’s been in over a year. This can be traced to the statement and launch of the game’s large next-gen 1.5 patches. Nevertheless, this is only 4.5% of the number of concurrent players in Cyberpunk 2077 from launch.
Back in December 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 had become the first single-player game ever on Steam to hit over 1,000,000 concurrent gamers – a name the game still holds to this day, in spite of being knocked right all the way down to the fifth position in Steam because of the player count of Lost Ark just last week.
That concurrent player record nevertheless stands at 1,054,388; however, those gamers quickly dropped off from Cyberpunk 2077 as they both finished it or had gotten bored with it. Just a month later, in January 2021, the game clocked in only a mere 50,000 gamers, and that number is still falling.
Now, due to the announcement of the 1.5 patch news, Cyberpunk is ultimately drawing close those numbers again, hitting 48,202 gamers within the last 24 hours – or 4.5% of its current player count, which is a pretty respectable jump for just 24hours
At the time of scripting, these players don’t appear to be a one-off. As Cyberpunk 2077 presently boasts 47,650 gamers on Steam, it still is a tiny number in comparison to the million-plus players that we saw on launch; however it is marvellous for a single-player game after an entire year that hasn’t had any sizable DLC brought to it, this does show the potential the game still has.
A lot of gamers are hoping that Cyberpunk 2077’s first big update of 2022 will repair the issues that have been with us from around the launch. We do, unfortunately, know for a fact that it will not be getting a metro system, so you’ll most probably depend upon mods to get one.
