It’s been nearly 2 years since Cyberpunk 2077 from developer CD Projekt Red released back in December of 2020. While the game had a bumpy launch, updates and patches along with the release of the well-received Netflix animated series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners have all done a lot to help bolster the game’s popularity.
Now, the game has officially hit a major milestone, with the Cyberpunk 2077 social media accounts sharing the exciting news that over 20 million copies of the game have been sold.
