Cyberpunk 2077 Player Count Drops; CDPR Refutes Alleged Developer Post

TechRadar notes that the player count on Cyberpunk 2077 has dropped by over 75% since a dramatic peak of over one million concurrent players around the launch of the sci-fi RPG less than a month ago. Games generally experience fall-offs in player counts over time, but this seems rapid, they note that The Witcher 3 took about three months to hit a similar decline. In other news about the game, CD PROJEKT RED made a post to their own forums to refute a recent post on GameFAQs that was allegedly from one of their developers speaking anonymously. The post made several points about the game and the process of developing it and addressing problems with the release version, and the developer responds with an unequivocal denial, saying: "We usually do not comment on rumours, but this is simply not true."
