Cyberpunk 2077 was the most downloaded PlayStation 4 game in June, according to Sony. CD Projekt RED's divisive RPG finally returned to the PlayStation Store last month following a six-month hiatus as a result of its disastrous launch. I guess absence really does make the heart grow fonder.
This impressive stat comes despite the fact that Sony warned players against buying Cyberpunk 2077 for base PS4 consoles, almost as soon as the game was returned to the PS Store.
"Users will continue to experience performance issues with the PS4 edition while CD Projekt Red continues to improve stability across all platforms," Sony said in a statement at the time. "SIE recommends playing the title on PS4 Pro or PS5 for the best experience."
This latest sales data comes via the PlayStation blog, which lists the top-selling games of the last month for PS5 and PS4. It seems that Cyberpunk 2077 was the top-selling game for U.S./Canada market, and the European market.
While this no doubt comes as a huge surprise to many - including those of us here at GAMINGbible who still believe Cyberpunk 2077 remains an absolute mess on the base PS4 - CDPR will be thrilled with this result.
The studio has undeniably been working hard to fix the game up on all platforms, and although it may not be close to acceptable on PS4 and Xbox One, I've definitely noticed drastic improvements playing the game on PS5. Still, given that the game was always marketed as a last-gen release, that's less-than ideal for those of us out there who still don't have a new-gen console.
The good news is that more changes are on the horizon. A leak earlier this month suggests CDPR is gearing up to release the "biggest update yet" for Cyberpunk 2077, including a bevy of fixes and all-new content to check out. Until we hear more about this in an official capacity, however, I'd still excercise caution if you're thinking about getting the game on PS4 or Xbox One.
