Cyberpunk 2077 has had a good summer and things are looking up for the game as its player base continues to grow in September 2021.
Cyberpunk 2077 was the most hyped game of the year of the lockdown but CD Projekt Red's latest RPG offering magnificently (and quite publically) failed to stick the landing when it got released in December 2020. Ten months and a bunch of fan goodwill lost later, CDPR have managed to patch the game and get it into an enticing enough state that players have started coming back to experience everything Night City has to offer.
Cyberpunk 2077 player numbers in the second half of 2021 - so far
While July brought the first increase in the average player numbers, August saw an even bigger uptick in players returning to Night City and living their best cybernetically-augmented lives.
Cyberpunk 2077 saw the biggest dip in its player numbers in June 2021 when the game counted 8,864.5 average players; this number peaked at 15,703.
The seventh month of 2021 was when things started to look up: Cyberpunk 2077's player base, according to Steam Charts, peaked at 17,110 players and averaged out at 9,634.0.
Cyberpunk 2077 gained back 798.4 per cent of its players in August 2021 which put the average number at 10,432.3. The first week of September was also kind to CD Projekt Red's RPG as the Steam Charts now show a 24-hour peak of 19,706 players with no less than 13,683 of them playing at the time of writing.
