Cyberpunk 2077 Now the Biggest-Ever PC Launch

Blizzard just announced that by selling 3.7 million units in 24 hours, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands became the fastest-selling PC launch of all time. But that news is so Tuesday. Now PC Gamer calculates that Cyberpunk 2077 immediately swiped that crown (not that this helped the company's stock price). They note that CD PROJEKT tweeted that the sci-RPG had eight million preorders and in a separate tweet they specified that 59% of these preorders were for the PC edition. That leads to a straightforward extrapolation:
59% of 8 million is 4.72 million copies, so CP 2077 is over a million units ahead of Shadowlands even before the purchases made on day one itself. Once those figures are available we'll update the total.

Obviously this comparison isn't apples to oranges, but it's particularly striking that CDPR has achieved Cyberpunk's debut videogame. A chunk of that success is just down to marketing, of course, but it also shows the size of the audience that CDPR has built over its Witcher games.

Game defaulted to ultra settings on my 1080 Ti. My native res is 4k. Slideshow.

This is AFTER I spent TWO HOURS trying to get the game to even run. It would crash immediately every time until I updated my videocard drivers.

But I guess I need to build a new PC before I can properly play this game. I think it's crashing because it's requesting some CPU feature I don't support. I'm using a ten year old i7 980x. Sad It's a terrible time to upgrade too. Oh well. Guess I'm waiting for the patches and DLC anyway.

So you have a 4k monitor, with a 1080 ti with old drivers and a ten year old cpu and main board missing features and the game launched?

Congratulations!
