Currently, Cyberpunk 2077 is experiencing yet another new lease on life. You might recall that when the game was finally released on the PS5 earlier this year, the number of players skyrocketed. Similar enthusiasm has been shown for the open-world RPG.
Nearly two years after its initial release, 2077 currently sits atop the Steam charts for the most played single-player games on the service.
The release of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the Netflix anime adaptation that has already established itself as a success, is primarily responsible for its sudden and enormous rise in popularity.
2077's creator CD Projekt Red also reduced the game's price on all platforms to commemorate the anime's debut, so it's reasonable to assume that it's attracting lots of new users.
