Cyberpunk 2077 is making excellent use of its second chance, and now, after several years, it has the reviews on Steam that it rightfully deserved from the beginning. CD Projekt RED immediately recognizes this and celebrates this success by thanking its fan base.

Cyberpunk 2077’s Game Director Thanks Players for Second Chance

5 percent of Cyberpunk 2077‘s last 7,029 reviews are “Overwhelmingly Positive.”

Paweł Sasko’s thank you post is for the loyal folks who gave the game a second chance despite the initial disastrous problems and helped it earn the “Overwhelmingly Positive” label in recent Steam reviews.

At the time of writing, 95 percent of Cyberpunk 2077‘s last 7,029 reviews are “Overwhelmingly Positive.” Additionally, 83 percent of all 651,457 reviews are “Very Positive.” In his post, Sasko stated that they never gave up and always believed they would succeed. To be honest, one of the things fans value most is CD Projekt RED taking responsibility for its mistakes and working tirelessly to fix them.

Although Cyberpunk 2077 no longer has a huge player base, it continues to serve its loyal audience. According to SteamDB data, the game has an average of 13,000 concurrent players and peaked at 30,000 in the last 24 hours.

Considering the number of concurrent players, it can be said that Cyberpunk 2077 has a stable performance. Additionally, it reached its all-time peak during its initial release and is not expected to surpass 1 million concurrent players any time soon.

What Has Cyberpunk 2077 Done Right in Four Years?

The disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077 resulted in a lot of negative things.

To be honest, it took a while for the game to be fully adopted, but that’s still something for players. At least now, fans can experience a decent game. So, what has the title done right in these four years to establish the bond with fans that it needed to establish at launch?

The disastrous launch in 2020 resulted in a lot of negative things, including the game’s removal from the PlayStation Store, refunds, extremely negative reviews, and even lawsuits against CD Projekt RED. Whatever you call it, launching a work that is not ready as if it were already done is one of the biggest mistakes that can be made.

Perhaps the multiple postponements of the game and the impatience of fans led the developer to act hastily, but as we all know, this resulted in a huge disaster.

Despite all this, the developer did not give up. They first launched a flurry of updates that resolved errors and bugs in the game. Then, they ensured a healthy connection with the game by adding content that would attract people’s attention. This helped eliminate prejudice against the game and even increased expectations for a sequel.

So, what do you think about Cyberpunk 2077? Are you playing the game? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
