Cyberpunk 2077 Gradually Restores Gamers' Sympathy On Steam


Cyberpunk 2077 Gradually Restores Gamers' Sympathy On Steam

The patch work for Cyberpunk 2077 is finally starting to bear fruit. Steam reviews of the game have been gradually improving in recent weeks. In addition, the game has stopped losing players.

This is best illustrated by player ratings on Steam. Over the course of several weeks, the percentage of positive marks made in the last 30 days has gradually increased. Currently, it is 68%, so only 2% is missing for the site to begin to determine the status of CP2077 in this category as positive, and not as "mixed". For several months after the release, this figure has been steadily declining. On March 1, it dropped below 70% and then continued its downward movement. Of all user reviews posted in the third month of this year, only 59% were positive.

The worst for the game was March, when only 59% of user ratings were positive.

Patch 1.2, which remains the biggest patch to date, seems to be a breakout. Even after installing it, the game still leaves a lot to be desired, but the positive changes are obvious, and this is reflected in the perception of the game.

In April, 67% of Steam users spoke positively about Cyberpunk 2077. Today, the result is 68% over the past 30 days, so the game is gradually moving up.

April turned out to be a much better month to play than March.

It looks like the company has also managed to stop the churn of players. Activity rates have declined rapidly since launch, but have begun to stabilize in recent weeks. Last Sunday, 17,908 players played simultaneously in Cyberpunk 2077, almost the same number as a week earlier.

The game will never return to the records of the premiere period, when more than a million people could play it at the same time, but stopping the downward trend is good news for the authors, especially considering that this is a product without multiplayer.

CD Projekt RED still has a lot of work to do before Cyberpunk 2077 reaches a fully satisfying level of quality. However, it looks like the efforts to fix the game have finally begun to pay off, and the worst is probably over. We can only hope that the patching process will continue and that over time, CP2077 will finally be the player that players were counting on.
