But, Cyberpunk's numbers are not dramatically low for anyone to deduce that abandoning the game is a better alternative. They've reaffirmed their intention (multiple times) to release all planned free DLCs and 2 expansions. They're not going to keep updating this game forever, even if the number of concurrent players is 5 times higher.Of course play count matters, even in single play games that have no online features. Why bother updating a game, or releasing new content if no-one is playing your game? Player count matters to devs/publishers.
No official data available, but you should take into consideration that collector's edition and standard physical edition comes with GOG activation code.I don't use GOG, but out of curiosity, what are CP77's player count over there?
In TW3 days, more people played the game on GOG than on steam.
