Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty's Sales Soar, Surpassing 5 Million Mark

CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty has hit a new milestone, proving to be a resounding success with over 5 million sales by the end of 2023. This achievement showcases the enduring appeal and dedication of the gaming community to the Cyberpunk universe. The expansion's release on September 26 was met with critical acclaim and enthusiasm from fans, leading to a staggering 3 million sales in just the first week.

The momentum didn't slow down as the months progressed. CD Projekt Red's latest tweet on January 4, 2024, highlighted the expansion's impressive sales figures, boasting an additional 700,000 units sold in December alone. This update came just after the three-month anniversary of the game's release, emphasizing its continuous popularity. The DLC's success is partly attributed to the base game's historically low prices and strategic releases, such as the Cyberpunk 2077 Ultimate Edition, which further expanded its audience.

Phantom Liberty's attachment rate also tells a story of success. Approximately 20% of base game owners purchased the expansion, indicating strong continued interest in the Cyberpunk 2077 world. With the base game reaching 25 million sales by October 2023, the numbers suggest that most of these sales were on current-gen consoles and PC, given that the DLC was exclusive to these platforms.

Despite the rocky start that Cyberpunk 2077 experienced at launch, the sales figures for Phantom Liberty paint a picture of redemption and resurgence. The base game's troubled past seems to have been overshadowed by the success of the latest expansion, signaling a positive turnaround for CD Projekt Red's reputation and the franchise's future.

Looking ahead, CD Projekt Red has learned valuable lessons from the past and is committed to ensuring that the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, codenamed Orion, will reach players polished and ready for action. The anticipation for Orion is high, with hopes that it will build on the success of Phantom Liberty and deliver an even more immersive and bug-free experience. Cyberpunk 2077's journey may have started off bumpy, but with Phantom Liberty, it's clear that the game has found its stride and is sprinting into a brighter future.
