Cyberpunk 2077 is enjoying a Player Count Surge thanks to Edgerunners
Cyberpunk2077 has been around for almost two years (if you believe that), and it seems like it is experiencing a slight renaissance of popularity. If its player count on Steam is anything to go by,
According to Steam Charts, Cyberpunk 2077 has had a good September. This is likely due to Edgerunners, an anime-based Netflix spin-off that received excellent reviews. Similar results were seen with CD Projekt Red’s previous title, The Witcher 3. The series received its very own Netflix adaptation, and the third game saw an increase in players.
Cyberpunk 2077 has over 40,000 players as of this writing ( UPDATE at 45K+). This has been a huge increase in the last 24 hours and will continue to grow over the weekend. It is already double the number of players that reached the peak in August 2022 (which had a peak of 18,695).
This is Cyberpunk2077’ss highest player peak since February 2022. That was when Cyberpunk 2077 released the vast 1.5 patches, which fixed many of the game’s major problems and brought a next-gen version to its console versions.
Edgerunners was released on September 13th. There isn’t much information available about the average player count, but consistent engagement has grown since then.
Patch 1.5 was released, which included plenty of Edgerunners content and the eagerly awaited transmog. There were also a lot of bug fixes.
Cyberpunk 2077 will continue on this path (its peak reached 2k typing this up). September 2022 could be one of the most played months in the game’s history. Every chance it will surpass or beat the February 2022 peak of 59,061 players.
