(Reuters) - Cyberpunk 2077, the highly anticipated game by Polish video games maker CD Projekt, topped Steam’s chart at its premiere on Thursday after eight years in development and multiple launch delays.
Before the pandemic he had expected the game to sell about 30 million units in 2021, but now thinks that it could even reach 40 million.
Cyberpunk is the biggest game CD Projekt had in the works since the 2015 debut of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”.
The success of Witcher made CD Projekt one of Poland’s biggest listed companies with a market capitalization of $10.8 billion.
CD Projekt shares, which have surged 42% this year in anticipation of Cyberpunk’s launch, were 2% lower at 0833 GMT.
