Cyberpunk 2077 Expected To Sell 20 Million Units Within One Year, Analyst Says
Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to sell quite a few copies in its first year of availability, and sales may exceed the developer's previous game quite a bit.
Bloomberg analyst Matthew Kanterman predicts that Cyberpunk 2077 will sell 20 million copies within its first year of availability, which is a huge number that The Witcher 3 only managed to sell in four years.
Earlier this week, CDPR John Mamais talked about Cyberpunk 2077 and how the game will be the last, big exceptional looking title on this current console generation.
And as the technology changes, we're expected to use it too - and we want to use it cause that stuff keeps looking cooler and cooler, all the time. We'll always keep pushing the envelope on the way a game can look, and that's one of the most exciting things about working at CD Projekt Red; getting to do just that. I think Cyberpunk is going to be a real show piece in terms of tech. Especially as this generation of consoles is fading out. I think we're going to be that one last, big, exceptional looking title on this current generation of hardware.”
With the game's scope and mechanics which will make the game enjoyable for fans of role-playing games and first-person shooters, it's not hard to see how Cyberpunk 2077 will manage to sell a lot in its first year
One key point to take away is that this one singular mission was shown over fifty minutes. While aspects were duplicated, you could comfortably call it a half-hour mission, and it's one of so many that will be found within the six districts of Night City. Much like The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 is looking like it will be an undeniably huge game with so much to offer. From what I've seen over these past two years, it's one I'm absolutely looking forward to.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on April 16th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
