Lo + Gaming The title of CD Projekt RED has attracted all eyes
And a week ago since the premiere of Cyberpunk 2077 and there is no word that better describes its start than “controversial.” The last 7 days have had everything from a culminating exception to a massive disappointment, to of course grays that have balanced the scales. What cannot be doubted is the impressive reception that players around the world have given to the delivery of CD Projekt RED .
Since its launch on December 10, Cyberpunk 2077 has been the most watched video game on Twitch, with an average of more than 300,000 simultaneous viewers . This figure places it above leading video games such as League of Legends (115 thousand), World of Warcraft (126 thousand) or Fortnite (157 thousand).
However, the high amount of bugs in the first versions of Cyberpunk 2077 video games may have influenced the progressive slowdown that the game is suffering in terms of viewers. Although it is impossible to maintain the figures it achieved in its premiere, with a spectacular peak of 1,140,960 users during the night of its launch, its records are expected to remain around 150 thousand viewers.
