CD PROJEKT has revealed in a recent earnings report that Phantom Liberty, the recently-released major paid expansion for its embattled-but-recovered sci-fi RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, has passed over 4.3 million units sold.
As the company points out, this means that 20% or 1-in-5 players who’ve picked up the base game since release have also grabbed the expansion – with likely more to come as the game approaches a physical Ultimate Edition release next week.
“According to our estimates, after last weekend, total sales of the expansion topped 4.3 million copies,” the company’s CFO, Piotr Nielubowicz, said in an accompanying presentation. “This means that every fifth person who owns a copy of the base game for the PC or next gen consoles has also purchased the expansion.”
“We are very pleased with the launch of Phantom Liberty. Successful release of the expansion, along with Update 2.0 which introduces a slew of additional improvements, elevates Night City gameplay to another level – in terms of quality. This is an important achievement given our plans to further develop the franchise,” adds Adam Kici?ski, CEO and Board Member of
CD PROJEKT in a press release.
We scored the game’s Phantom Liberty expansion (along with its 2.0 update) a huge 10/10 in our review, saying “On the back of Phantom Liberty, along with a really substantial rebuild of all of the game’s core systems, Cyberpunk 2077 manages to wash its hands of its past failures and emerges as the genuine article. At last, it’s the intoxicating escape I once thought it was and stands out, to me, as the premiere role-playing resort in what might very well be a modern golden age for the genre.”
