Cyberpunk 2077 can say a big thank you to the giant Netflix

Cyberpunk 2077 can say a big thank you to the giant Netflix

Everyone has the right to a second chance, within reason, including Cyberpunk 2077. And thanks to the Netflix platform, CD Projekt Red’s game is once again attracting people.

It was more or less expected but the Netflix Cyberpunk Edgerunners series is doing a lot of good at Cyberpunk 2077.

Players return to Cyberpunk 2077 thanks to Netflix

Broadcast since September 13 on Netflix, the animated series Cyberpunk Edgrunners is a great success. Both in terms of press criticism and spectators who salute the adaptation work of Studio Trigger (Kill la Kill). On Rotten Tomatoes as on IMDB, the consensus is there with high averages. But this success goes beyond since it fully serves the interests of CD Projekt Red and its Cyberpunk 2077.

In recent days on Steamthe number of simultaneous players has climbed to 70,000. Unheard of since January 2021, a month after its launch, as noted by Benji Sales. An ephemeral comeback? No. It continued to increase to reach 85,555 concurrent players a few hours later. And even though it’s now down to around 50,000, Cyberpunk 2077 is much more popular than it was before Cyberpunk Edgerunners was released on Netflix.

However, CD Projekt Red is not at its first attempt. This synergy has already been observed with the Netflix series The Witcher which had made it possible to bring players back to The Witcher 3. A method that PlayStation certainly hopes to reproduce with its multitude of adaptations, including the series The Last of Us.

Cyberpunk will also be relaunching in 2023 with the unique Phantom Liberty DLC, but after that there shouldn’t be any big additional content. The teams of the Polish studio have enough to do to realize their very big ambitions with The Witcher 4.
