It’s been a few months now Cyberpunk 2077 was updated for free for Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5 and CD Projekt RED can already draw some conclusions about how the “re-release” of its latest great video game has worked. Just like Explain the GamesIndustry portal, the Next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 has skyrocketed CD Projekt’s revenue in the last quarter, the first of the year. And it is that the Polish firm has presented to the board the financial results harvested until March 31, 2022, which show the positive influence of the RPG set in Night City.
The net profit of CD Projekt RED in this first quarter (counting the activities as a video game company and as the owner of GOG) has been 16.1 million dollars, which represents a 112% more than what was achieved in the same period of 2021, more than double profits. A demonstration of what happened is that between January 1 and February 14 (the day before the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 next-gen) most of the game’s sales occurred on PC; between February 15 and March 31, not only the sales on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|Sbut the total sales volume of the title doubled that of the previous period.
