Strong opening for Cyberpunk. Would be interesting to know how much it sold in 2021 so far. Obviously 2021 numbers so far wouldn't be huge due to the issues with the game, but I would imagine it has sold at least another 3m in nearly 4 months so far this year, considering it sold 700k in the final week and a half of 2020.

Witcher 3 is truly a juggernaut. I suspect it is a quite alot over 30m but they don't want to give exact figures and will only announce milestones in 5m increments (30m, 35m, 40m etc.). It was at 28m end of 2019, and they say that 2020 was the game's 2nd biggest year ever, and seeing as it sold nearly 10m in 2015 and around 6m in 2019, it must be at like 34.5m sales now.

56 + 28 + 17 = 101%

The game is so broken that even its sales reache above 100%

Highly unlikely to match witcher 3 sales. That one hell of a drop off in sales.

Well the witcher 3 is on more platforms and has been out much longer. Given time, who knows? Obviously cyberpunk had a rough launch, but in spite of the issues, it still sold a lot of units.

The majority of the sales were on PC, not consoles.
