Cyberpunk 2077’s best player count in a year is a fraction of its peak
The latest Cyberpunk 2077 player count is great news for the RPG as it rose this weekend to the highest it’s been in over a year, thanks to the announcement and release of the game’s big next-gen 1.5 patch. Nevertheless, it’s only 4.5% of Cyberpunk 2077’s concurrent player count peak from launch.
Back in December 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 became the first single-player game ever on Steam to hit over a million concurrent players – a title the great cyberpunk game still holds, despite being knocked down to only the fifth-highest Steam player count peak by Lost Ark last week.
That concurrent player count record still stands at 1,054,388, but those players quickly dropped off from Cyberpunk 2077 as they either completed it or got tired of it. Just a month later in January 2021, the game was under 50,000 players and still falling. Now, thanks to the 1.5 patch news, Cyberpunk is finally approaching these numbers again, hitting 48,202 players in the last 24 hours – or, 4.5% of its concurrent player count record.
