The Cyberpunk 2077 release date might be months away, but pre-orders seem to already be bringing in a pretty penny for CD Projekt Red. In a tweet earlier today, the developer revealed that a third of all pre-orders so far have come from GOG.
This afternoon, the developer announced that “every third copy of the digital version of Cyberpunk 2077 for PC so far” has been pre-ordered through the developer’s own platform, and thanked players for their “breathtaking” support. While GOG is traditionally known for helping to bring older games back to PC players, CD Projekt also uses it as an alternative platform for its own games – last year, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales launched on GOG, although disappointing sales mean it eventually came to Steam too.
Cyberpunk seems to have a broader appeal, however, and CDPR also seems to have been pushing the game’s existence on an alternative PC platform a little harder, regularly reminding players that 100% of their purchase goes to the CD Projekt Group if they buy through GOG.
