The wait for Cyberpunk 2077 was long. Originally revealed by CD Projekt Red in 2012, it took 8 years for the development and release of the game. Well yes, after all this wait, it had to be to the most hyped game ever. However, the record of holding staggering numbers on the launch day was held by Fallout 4 with 472,962 peak concurrent players when it launched back in 2015 and now, Cyberpunk 2077 is the new entity that holds the title for highest concurrent players peaking a number of 1,000,297.
Obviously, the above numbers were only for the launch day, the all-time high was for the co-op multiplayer game PUBG with over 3.2 million concurrent players back in the year of 2018. Cyberpunk 2077 is tipped to get a multiplayer mode in 2021, and if it receives the same kind of attention for the launch of multiplayer mode too, it has the potential to top the all-time charts too.
