It’s been over a month since Cyberpunk Edgerunners debuted on Netflix, and Cyberpunk 2077 Steam reviews have been pouring in ever since as a host of new and returning players get the game started. Now if you look at Steam’s collection of Cyberpunk 2077 user reviews from the past 30 days (and there are nearly 15,000), they come out at “very positive,” with 90% of players giving the sci-fi RPG game their thumbs up. gives up.
“Woooo, look at this!” tweeted Cyberpunk 2077 Quest Director Paweł Sasko. “90% of reviews on Steam in the last 30 days have been very positive.” He added: “Feels so good, you can’t imagine” with a sobbing emoji bringing the emotion home.
As it approaches its second birthday, Cyberpunk 2077 has had a wild ride. After multiple delays, it was finally launched in December 2020 after a massive marketing campaign. While critical reviews were mostly positive, the tune changed dramatically when players first set foot in Night City, especially those playing on last-gen consoles. Reviewers were only provided with PC codes, and the poor state of Cyberpunk 2077’s console ports was hidden.
Developer CD Projekt Red worked on patches, bug fixes, and some minor bits of additional content, rolling back the original plans for expanded DLC. While the game improved noticeably during that time, the ill-will of its launch failure made the game a pariah – you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.
Unless of course you can make an anime with Studio Trigger. When Edgerunners debuted in September, players decided to return to the RPG that inspired it, and it seems they liked what they found.
Looking ahead, the first – and now only – Cyberpunk 2077 expansion, Phantom Liberty, will be released in 2023. Meanwhile, CD Projekt Red has announced that it is working on an all-new Cyberpunk game, currently codenamed Project Orion, along with several new games in the Witcher universe.
