The unsuccessful launch of the action role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 has apparently not damaged the success of the game developer CD Projekt Red. Because the company reported an outstanding profit for the 2020 financial year.
CD Projekt Red celebrates a great success
It reported sales of PLN 2,139 million (US $ 563 million) and a profit of PLN 1,154 million (US $ 303 million). These are only preliminary estimates, but according to the company they are almost final. The real numbers will be announced on April 22nd, but CD Projekt Red assumes that they hardly differ from these now, if at all.
The numbers are significantly higher than what CD Projekt Red reported in the previous fiscal year. At the time, sales were $ 137.2 million and profit was $ 46.7 million. Even with the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the studio couldn’t reach such numbers. In 2015 it was $ 205 million in sales and $ 88 million in profit. Although Cyberpunk 2077 was only released in December 2020, the high sales figures for the release play a decisive role here. According to CD Projekt Red, the game went over 13 million times over the counter before Christmas. According to SuperData, it was the biggest digital game launch of all time. And that although the versions for PS4 and Xbox One were plagued by massive problems at the start.
CD Projekt Red has already stated that it does not want to give up Cyberpunk 2077 and is working on further patches that improve the quality as well as on DLCs that bring new content with them.
