Unfortunately, Cyberpunk 2077 hasn’t been able to maintain its player base on Steam. And when comparing the new IP to CDPR’s previous biggest game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the dev/publisher could be in even more trouble.
When Cyberpunk 2077 launched a little over 3 weeks ago, it became the first singleplayer game ever to break 1 million concurrent players on Steam. But over this past weekend, Cyberpunk continued its decline, struggling to peak at 225k players.
While that 79% drop in players is worrying, most singleplayer games typically lose around the same amount of players, if not even more, after their first month on Steam. Open-world games like Cyberpunk are usually the exception, and compared to The Witcher 3, CDPR’s new digital playground certainly isn’t doing as well at keeping players interested in coming back for more.
Although CDPR’s previous hit only peaked with 92k players during its launch back in May 2015, The Witcher 3 was still able to retain over half its player base with a peak of 55k players online a month later. It took 3 whole months before Witcher 3 lost more than 79% of its players on Steam.
