Cyberpunk 2077 Is the Biggest Digital Launch Ever; Refunds Didn't Substantially Affect Aggregate Sales, Says SuperData
According to SuperData, Cyberpunk 2077 had the biggest digital launch of all time for a game and refunds didn't substantially affect it.
"Cyberpunk 2077 had the biggest game launch of all time based on digital revenue and digital units sold (10.2M)*. A successful marketing campaign and the reputation of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt provided the hype necessary for the CD Projekt Red title to break records despite issues including performance problems on consoles, widespread glitches and the indefinite removal of the game from the PlayStation Store. An extremely high share of digital sales (80%) were on PC, likely due to the delisting on PlayStation and overall state of the console versions.
* These estimates do include digital copies that have been refunded, but our data shows that refunds did not substantially affect the game's aggregate sales.
