Asmongold is impressed with the Cyberpunk 2077 player base after the release of Phantom Liberty


Popular Twitch streamer Zack “Asmongold” is known for his opinions on video games. Recently, they noted high concurrent player numbers for Cyberpunk 2077 with the recent release of version 2.0 and the Phantom Liberty expansion. The streamer compared the game’s player base to Starfield, saying that CD Projekt Red’s three-year-old sci-fi RPG is performing much better than recent releases.

In fact, the streamer specifically told its viewers that they felt the latest Phantom Liberty expansion and the new Cyberpunk 2077 patch had impacted Starfield sales. In a recent stream, Asmagold said:

“So yes, a lot of people are playing the game. Starfield is still one of the most played games on Steam. Obviously, cyberpunk is taking over. And let’s be real, cyberpunk, of course I think , Starfield’s sales have blown out, right?”

According to the SteamDB chart that Jack was looking at for reference, Cyberpunk 2077 had over 180K concurrent players at the time, while Starfield had less than 70K, which clearly shows that the new expansion featuring Edris Alba There has been a big impact on player numbers.

Furthermore, the new patch, which updates the game to version 2.0, is being praised by most of the playerbase for the variety of gameplay changes it brings. Even Asmagold told his audience that he would come play the game to see what the fuss is about.

However, comparing it to Starfield, the streamer said he thought Bethesda’s RPG would also go down as a great game that will be played for years to come:

“It (Cyberpunk 2077) has a lot more depth and that’s why I want to play it and see what it’s about. But at the same time, I mean, I think people will be playing Starfield for many years.”
