Phantom Liberty, the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC that provides Idris Elba and a few type of rocket ship (I feel? I have not really gotten to it but), has accomplished fairly properly for itself. That is in accordance with a latest CD Projekt Pink earnings name in addition to the corporate’s Twitter account, which was out yesterday boasting about 4.3 million copies of the DLC bought since launch.

For reference, CDPR was bragging about Cyberpunk promoting 25 million copies early final month, within the warmth of its post-2.0, post-DLC, “we have mounted the game now” victory lap. 4.3 million enlargement gross sales on high of that’s nothing to smell at, and equals an estimated 20% “attachment ratio,” or the quantity of people that purchased Cyberpunk’s base game that additionally purchased the DLC. I really feel like there’s in all probability a greater time period for that phenomenon, however perhaps that is why I haven’t got an MBA.
In case you’re questioning whether or not an attachment ratio of 20% is sweet or not, apparently it’s. Obsidian design director Josh Sawyer—of Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, and Pentiment fame—weighed in by means of the quote tweets to say that his personal studio normally hopes for “a ~25% attachment fee for DLCs launched inside a number of months of the bottom game,” which means “a 20% attachment fee on an enlargement 2.5 years after launch is fairly spectacular.”
In earlier stat-based brags, CDPR has given a platform-by-platform breakdown of where individuals are shopping for the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC. In October, these numbers had been: 13% on Xbox, 20% on PS5, and 68% on PC, probably the most cyberpunk platform of all. I am unable to think about these numbers have modified a lot within the 2-ish months it has been since CDPR final spoke gross sales figures.
Anyhow, I am glad Phantom Liberty’s doing properly, as though I have not even reached it but, my venerable colleagues inform me it is actually fairly good. PCG’s Ted Litchfield scored it 87% in his Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty evaluation, calling it a “splendid sendoff for the world CD Projekt’s been engaged on for the higher a part of the final 10 years.”
