Cyberpunk 2077 generated great expectations among fans of the CD Projekt RED studio and among all gamers in general. Unfortunately, the title fell through and presented many performance problems on its premiere. However, a report indicates that this did not prevent the game from becoming the best digital release in history.

This was revealed by the analysis company SuperData in a recent report of the earnings recorded by games on console, PC and mobile phones during December of last year.

The new game from CD Projekt RED was the game that captured the most attention on PC, taking the first place of earnings generated during December, beating the giant League of Legends. It is important to mention that so far Cyberpunk 2077 does not have paid DLC or microtransactions, so all profits come from direct sales of the game in digital format.

Cyberpunk 2077 sold more than 10 million units in 3 weeks

According to the information, the vast majority of digital sales were made on PC (80%), which could be due to the removal of the game from the PlayStation Store and the problems it had, especially the console versions, and perhaps it is which is why Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t the first top-grossing game on consoles.

So, although sales could have been even higher, despite this, the title did very well, registering 10.2 million units sold in total, making it the game with the best launch in history.

Something important to say is that this figure does not include returns, but SuperData mentions that this estimate does not significantly affect total sales.

In case you missed it: a new patch for Cyberpunk 2077 fixed many performance issues.

Among Us premiere on Nintendo Switch was a success

Another interesting detail is that, although the number of players of Among Us fell compared to November 2020, it remained the most popular game, precisely 2.8 times more popular than Roblox, which is in the second position.

Likewise, it is noteworthy that after its launch on Nintendo Switch, on December 15, the title sold 3.2 million units the rest of the month through the Nintendo eShop and was the version that generated the most profits in the month. This is striking, because, unlike the mobile version, the Switch version is sold for $ 5 USD.

In terms of mobiles, the game that generated the most money in December was Pokémon GO, followed by Free Fire.
