Cyberpunk 2077: CDPR sells 13 million copies of the game, in-game hairstyle change mode out

The sales figure also considers the “returns submitted by retail clients in brick-and-mortar as well as digital storefronts.” Let’s check everything we know regarding Cyberpunk 2077 including the new mod.

CD Projekt Red, the company behind one of the most hyped AAA video games, Cyberpunk 2077 made a new announcement. As per the announcement, the company shared the sales figures for the game about two weeks after its launch. The game developer and publisher revealed that it sold about 13 million copies of the game at the launch. It managed to achieve this milestone on December 20, just 10 days after the launch. This makes Cyberpunk 2077 one of the most successful RPG games at launch.

The figure also considers the “returns submitted by retail clients in brick-and-mortar as well as digital storefronts.” Another report made its way to the internet where a Modder brought a new ability to the PC version. This ability allows players to change the hairstyle of their character in the game. Let’s check everything we know regarding the Cyberpunk 2077 sale figures including the new mod here.

Cyberpunk 2077 sold 13 million copies, details

We spotted the 13 million sales figure in the latest regulatory announcement that CD Projekt Red shared. In addition to the refunds, it also considered the requests that it received through its “Help Me Refund” campaign. The company stated that the management board decided to disclose this information “due to its potential impact on investment-related decisions”. This comes just days after we reported potential investor lawsuits against CD Projekt Red. This is due to the multiple issues that we have reported around the quality of the game at launch.

For some context, a sea of reports surfaced around the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 about game-breaking bugs and crashes. The worst offender was the terrible performance on base-last-gen consoles. CD Projekt Red likely knew about the issues as it did not reveal the gameplay footage on base consoles before the launch. It later admitted that it ignored the performance of the game on Xbox One and PS4. This pushed Sony to delist the game from the PlayStation store which in-turn impacted the stock price. The stock price crash resulted in a loss of about $1 billion. The 13 million figure comes days after the company revealed that it reported 8 million pre-orders.

PC mod brings the ability to change the hairstyle in-game, details

Looking at the second report, a user by the name “woodbricks” created a new Nexus Mod for the game. This mod allows players to switch between all the 38 different haircuts available for male and female characters. However, the mod is not flawless as players can’t change from the “totally bald” style to something else. The report also noted that the swap between all the styles is not perfect due to differences in intended gender based on head shape and the character model. This mod comes with instructions on how to enable it on your PC.
