Even though it had a lot of bugs, surprisingly, the game made by CD Projekt Red, namely Cyberpunk 2077 sold approximately 13 million copies. Not only announcing this, but the game maker company also said that the pre-orders of this game had covered its marketing and development capital so far.
However, even though the capital for this game has been covered, unfortunately, this game has very severe technical problems on the console platform. Because of this problem, CD Projekt Red was forced to make a refund process for buyers.
Although there are many people who have made refunds for this game, the good news is that CD Projekt Red doesn’t seem to have experienced a drastic drop in revenue. In fact, they still have an income that is more than their base capital.
This news itself was announced by CD Projekt Red, where they explained that the Cyberpunk 2077 game had sold more than 13 million copies since its release until December 10, 2020.
The number of sales they combine from digital stores and several distributors of physical versions are huge. So you could say, Cyberpunk 2077 game is sold not purely by themselves, but the retail version also has a big role here.
In addition, this sales amount alone is totaled together with the refund version sold. So, in other words Cyberpunk 2077 game sales did not reach 13 million copies, because many users made refunds for the game.
This Cyberpunk 2077 Sold Income is not Profitable for CD Projekt Red
According to Wowkia, this is not something that is profitable for CD Projekt Red. Considering that they have lost their name and public trust because of this game, I believe that even when the amount of Cyberpunk 2077 sold sales and revenue from this game does generate much money, it is still not worth what is lost for this game’s future reputation.
