Cyberpunk 2077's stratospheric rise to success isn't slowing down soon as, according to CD Projekt Red, one million active players have been spending their long autumnal evenings in Night City for four weeks on the trot.
Given the utterly shambolic start that the game got in 2020, the fact that it surpasses the current player count for DayZ, Warframe and Dead By Daylight on Steam is an achievement that I'm not sure even the team themselves thought they'd see. Indeed, the renaissance that V and Johnny's odyssey has received is due to a number of factors, like the continuing support that the developer gave to stamping out the bugs and glitches, the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime, and the anticipated DLC.

Taking to Twitter, CD Projekt Red thanked players for their belief in Cyberpunk 2077 in spite of its faltering start and their commitment to its rejuvenescence. "1 million active players each day for four weeks in a row - Night City sure is thriving!" said the developer through the game's official Twitter account. "Your passion and continued support leave us speechless." In the replies and quote-retweets, players commended the team's efforts over the last 18 months and encouraged other players to give the game a go now that it's improved almost all aspects of the experience.

Of course, Cyberpunk 2077 fans will have even more to look forward to, following the launch of Phantom Liberty. The sequel is in development, albeit at a very early stage, with a brand new team in Boston and in tandem with the Vancouver studio. "Our plans are certainly ambitious, and call for a great deal of work, dedication and further growth," said vice president and CFO Piotr Nielubowicz about (the currently codenamed) Project Orion.
