December 10 has just passed, and with this, we have seen the arrival of the long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077, the most anticipated game in recent years. While the opinions of the public are divided, those of the specialized press classify it as a masterpiece. Now then, it has just been revealed that the new title has caused CD Projekt RED’s shares to plummet, but it is not all bad.
IGN has compiled various information on the financial aspect of the company, and they have revealed that the developer has fallen 29% in the stock market. On the other hand, many assure that the fall is due to the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, but others assure that these falls occur with strong changes in the company, so it is not certain. Also, as various analysts have shared, the game has been completely profitable, since in a few hours they have managed to get everything they used in development.
CD Projekt Red says that its earnings from Cyberpunk 2077 pre-order sales across digital distribution channels have already exceeded the total development and marketing costs of the game.
