CDPR: Cyberpunk 2077 Runs “Surprisingly Good” On PS4/XB1, More Than 50% Pre-Orders Are Digital

CD Projekt Red has talked a bit about the digital pre-orders for Cyberpunk 2077 and how they are now shifting further to digital sales.

During an earnings call recently, CD Projekt Red’s CFO Piotr Nielubowicz talked a bit about their digital and physical pre-orders for Cyberpunk 2077.

“First, the expected ratio between digital and physical on our sales, as we see it on preorders digital is very strong, so definitely we are more into moving potential split digital/physical, and more on the digital side. How far we’ll go? We honestly speaking do not know, definitely farther than we had on the Witcher 3 and definitely more than 50% should come from the digital channel, ” said Piotr.

CD Projekt Red’s CEO Adam Kiciński was asked about the performance of the game on the PS4 and Xbox One. He replied that they were impressed with how the game is currently performing on all platforms taking into account the limitations of them.

“And PS4, yesterday we released the gameplay both on PS4 and PS5. So, you can see the difference. And on both — I mean, PS5 is great. PS4 is still very good. I mean, we had those extra three weeks and we achieved a lot by — within this final stretch. So, we believe that the game is performing great on every platform. Of course, accordingly to platform capabilities, but not every platform should be great.”

Adam clarified that the game runs well even on the base consoles. “Of course, a bit lower than on pros, but surprisingly good, I would say for such a huge world. So, bit lower, but very good. That’s the answer.”

    Personally I don’t understand why anyone would want a digital copy of a game, you can’t trade it, you need good Inernet even with preloads, playstation is still limiting downloads as far as I know, I don’t know what MS are doing, I doesn’t make sense to me.

      I agree with you as we the consumer lose some of our consumer rights and benefits yet we still pay the same price for a digital copy and they not only save money but get more control over their product even after the sale which leads to more profits for them so it’s more beneficial to them not the consumer as it becomes more like rental then an actual sale.

      You can trust that if it wasn’t for this pandemic it would be more like 75% physical 25% digital at best. Many are either just scared of the virus, have little or no access thanks to shutdowns and shortages, or don’t want to deal with having to follow the mandates so of course digital sales are going to and have gone up.

    This is no surprise and all thanks to the many lockdowns, mandates, and restrictions pushed onto the people because of Covid and I’m sure they know this too.
